On a good note, we did get Dad home from the hospital on Tuesday! It was quite the orchestrated event...my brother drove him from London to my place in Chatham, we had dinner here then I took him and my mom home to Windsor! He got in the door and plopped himself on the first chair in sight, he looked so tired, but at the same time, overwhelmingly happy to finally be home. You have to remember, we are talking about a man who has NEVER been hospitalized....NEVER been under the knife....and possibly NEVER been under an anesthetic! That in itself is kind of amazing since he is going to be 77 years old in a few weeks. That reminds me....hmmmm....better get thinking about a card!
Speaking of cards, let's get on with the reason why many of you are here....MY BELLARIFIC FRIDAY CARD!....
video babe, Ebru. Oh ya, have you seen Emily's video tutorials! You must check them out and the links are on her blog. Okay, I digress....I chose chatty CATHY for my image and as much as I LOVE these colours I found myself challenged to find papers that worked! What's with that? I love the colour, shouldn't I have a truck load of papers in my stash that match? No worries...I found some papers in the Basic Grey 6x6 pad of lime rickey that screamed aquamarine.
So what do ya think? Should I win a prize for staying so close to the colour inspiration? I think I should...I'm all about prizes...AND winning them! LOL!!!
She was stamped on bella's BESTEST paper and although I did not write down the specific copic colours I used you might guess that it was a WIDE range of the BG's. I used no pencils on the image and kept those strictly to the grounding and shading around the image with some aquamarine.
I hope you enjoyed this week's challenge and I HOPE to feast my eyes on a sea of aquamarine on Em's blog later today! Our challenge next week is keeping with the holiday of the month and that would be Easter! I'm sure many of us in Canada equate that with spring so how 'bout we 'cheat' a bit...if you don't celebrate Easter, just 'cheat' and make something 'spring like' instead and warm the hearts of us Canadians (and some Americans) who have seen WAY too much snow this year!
'till next time...Linda
