Black Swan

Teehee... I originally colored this image but I wasn't sure it looked right in these dark colors. So I went back and colored her blonde with pastel blues. What a nightmare! Pastels are kinda outta my comfort zone. I happen to think... if you goof... can't really hide it... whereas with dark colors... goof... add darker colors! :) Not that I goof... I'm just saying! ;) 
Here's what I first colored:
Ta-da! It's a twisted easel card!
Here's a view from the top so you can get a better look at the flowers on the bottom panel:
Close up of the image:
I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:
This is how I put my card together:
Image: Freebie from All Dressed Up
Image colored with Copic markers and 
outlined in glue and sprinkled with Crystal Snow
Sentiment from Create with TLC
Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug Polka Dots and 
Border punch: Lace 3-in-1 Corner Punch
Card stock and flowers from my stash
Now I can breathe better. It was bothering me something fierce that I'd colored an image and it was sitting on my desk unused. You know... Copic ink is kinda pricey. :\ I can't just leave a colored image laying around like that. I just CAN NOT! :) lol
Thanks for stopping by!
