CHOCOLATE now and than doesn't hurt!

Edit to add: This card is sold to Karen J. Thank you so much!xxx

Hello and a happy Friday to you. Thank you for visting my blog today. I hope i can inspire you to come over to the Friday Sketcher blog and give Carole's fabulos sketch for this week a try. Her sketch works really wonderfully for all kinds of stamp sizes you have. For me... my kids are still sick and I have a fever since two days.. so i was just happy to get one image colored in and a card done at all. So, if i don't have much time or i just don't feel the mojo :-) i like to stamp one of my Magnolia's with apron. The good thing about those cuties is.. that i dont have to color in a whole lot and the image always looks "just" right. I like to leave the apron white and just add shadows with C1 and my wonderful glitter pen to it, the same with the socks.
Now.. to be honest the entire card is inspired by Carole lol. Because of her i picked up that DCVW "Sweet" paper stack lol and it was a good desicion.. i like all the glitter, sparkle and swirls that is going on on those papers.

Stamps: Magnolia must have Tilda :-) can be found in the SO HEAVENLY, TRAVEL & SCHOOL Collection 2008, Sentiment: Amuse Art Stamps - i love all the new sentiments!!!
other: Stampin up Ribbon, Joann's "Swarovski" Gems, Stampin up circle punches, Bazzill brads, Prima Marketing flowers and Stickles to highlight wings and cupcake
Copic's used: 0, B00 for halo, YG11 for grounding the image, YG05,YR21, hair: E55,YR20, E31, Y21, R83, R85, R81 (also halo), E39, E18, E15 face: R20, E00, E000
Copic Quick Tip: rather than using your blender pen to lift color out for highlights, try to use your colored makers by example R81, R81 and R85. I have found that the Blender Pen sometimes gives ugly blotches in browns or reds tend to bleed over the lines after using the BP
