Sassy Cheryl's Challenge---What a Challenge LOL!!!

The challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge is to print and color on Kraft, chosen by our wonderful hostess, Jeni.  Well, I had so much fun creating the first card I had to make another. LOL...it's cool, you will like it.:

This little beauty called Artificial Flower Girl is just the most fun to color.  I colored her with copic markers as I have no Primas like the rest of the DT girls...I then colored the highlights with SU craft ink aplied with an aqua painter  I also used some distress ink in the shading...I got a little carried away and the white high lights are much brighter as I forgot the white dries brighter LOL..how soon we forget  :)

I added a pretty tulle bow and cut a pretty scalloped scrolley frame with my cricut, using my Design Studio software to resize it to fit my picture.

Next I had to keep playing with this cute bird bath called Birdbath Chit Chat.  now this was fun too,.
Birdbaths remind me of my mother who always had a bird bath in her yard and could name more birds than I could imagine.  I now have grown to enjoy their beauty.  What do you think:

The bird bath was colored with copics and over colored with distress ink and Craft white with an aqua painter.  I added some fun bird dp on the bottom panel of the Easel card and the Hello in white tiles hold the section up for viewing.  A white scalloped label cut with my cricut and a brown/white checked ribbon and bow highlight this cute hello card.

Be sure to check out the new images Sassy Cheryl has for you today,  they are awesome...as always.  Be sure to check out the DT cards on the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog to view their awesome creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by and as always I am thrilled to see you here.

Look at you!!! I did the first one, too and used tulle---decided she wasn't the better one since I did her face on regular card stock with Copics...the rest of her on Kraft paper with Prismas!
