Hispanic Woman

Have you missed me? lol ;)

I've been busy! I started school on January 16... full 12 hour load... thought I'd be able to keep up with my blog and boy howdy! ... whatever was I drinking when I thought that?!? ;) lol I did drop an hour course but please... ONE HOUR! The courses I kept are chemistry, anatomy and human growth & development. TWO science courses! :(

I can hardly keep up with my swap on FB and the Scrapbook Stamp Society Design Team but I'm committed to both! So here I am! :)

I kinda rushed through this card and I feel awful about it! I have a pile of homework I have got to get to but I need to post something for Sherri Baldy! I love she invited me to join her team and I am not gonna let her down! :) 

So, I received this image, Hispanic Woman from the store. In my haste, I forgot to take a pic of the colored image but here is the finished card:

The embossed background paper is from DCWV Lemon Flower Stack. I used card stock and ribbon from my stash. The flowers are from Michael's dollar bin. I tend to buy most of my embellishments in white because I can always add color to them later. As the flowers dry the color seeps more into the base. I've done this before many times but I cannot wait for the seeping to finish. I have anatomy homework and that will take a good part of this afternoon and I may not get a chance to come back on here and post my card and I. Have. To. Show. Her. To. You! I did the flowers on the top corner first so you can see the seeping has gone further in. I used my HOTP Tool Kit #2 to add shape to the color image and sprinkled the edges with Art Glitter in black. This is how I colored her:

Reds: R46, R37, RV69, RV29
Blacks: N08, N06, N04
Skin tone: E00, E51, E11, R20, R01
I used N00 to outline the image.
