Lottie and Gussie Gabalot

It is funny that I should be posting Lottie and Gussie Gabalot today because I'm really at a loss for words. Yup, not too much to say today so for those of you who don't read by blabber anyway it won't really matter!


Friday night I was flipping thru my NINE bella binders because my new rubber was looking for a good home and came upon my Chichi's...my beloved chichi's. Those little pixie faces of theirs just melt my heart. So I pulled out Lottie and Gussie and got to colouring with no particular paper in mind but new if I stuck with soft pink and green I would find something to match. And so I did with Basic Grey's Lemonade.

I also knew that I wanted to keep the colours soft so I started with a light wash of copics and did the rest using pencils. I'm rather smitten with how my chichi card turned out today and I think it is perfect to send to someone for no particular reason in mind except to maybe put a smile on their face.

Thanks for dropping by today.

Paper, Ink, Color! said...

Love it Linda! I have this stamp and tried coloring the image once. I did such a bad job on it, I threw the image in the garbage. LOL. I'm afraid to go back coloring another. ;). I love yours though!

Oh,your coloring is just superb!! I
wish you would do a series of videos
on Youtube teaching how you combine
the use of Copics and pencils. Thank
you for the inspiration!!
