Week 2 of our Babe search!

OMG! So excited! Did you give it a thought and enter last week? There were AMAZING entries. Do you know how the winner will be chosen? Well in case you don't I'll tell ya. Each of the current team members votes for two cards which we submit to an undisclosed babe....she is the only one who knows all the votes and which sistah is in the lead. The rest of us don't even know who got the most votes. Personally, I don't even want to know the vote standings because I don't want to be influenced. I'm not gonna tell you who is holding the 'votes' though just in case she can be bought! ...LOL!...I seriously doubt it, we are an upstanding honest bunch! And sometimes we can get down right funny...betcha didn't know that about us!

Enough gushing about our amazing group and on to my card for the Bling it On challenge. I'll admit, and it will be no secret for those who have been following me for a while...I don't do lots of bling! I like glitter, and love ribbon...but 'stuff' cluttering up my card in the name of bling, not so much. So Kissy got some glitter, got some glittery ribbon and to add the extra bling I added some tiny pearls.

As always, I'm gonna sound like a broken record and say she was stamped with Brilliance ink on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. AND, as I always do, I added some extra shading with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. On this image I also used a white color pencil to highlight and lighten up her dress. (no gamsol with the white pencil though!...just leave it as is) I coloured her tights pink because my original inspiration piece of paper was from Basic Grey Lily Kate but then I misplaced it and couldn't find it. GRRRRR....I have serious issues with misplacing things! So pink tights with green papers it is!

These are the copic colors I used:
E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E50, 51, 53, 31, 33, 35, 37 (hair)
E40, 41, 43, W0, 2, 3
YG0000, 00, 21, Y11, 35
R0000, 00, 01, 30, 32, 85
RV11, 32, G40, 82, 99, YG67
BV11, V15
