Just A Quick One ...

Hello good morning... one of my readers asked me if i could make for her 12 "Thank You" notes. The only requests the lady had was the card should be A2 size, not finished in the inside and not too many embellishments (here Prima Marketing and Robins Nest) on it. What i have done is.. i masked Tilda (Shabby Chic 2008) and just used some airbrushing with "milky white" and R81, distressed all the layers. However i could not resist to add stitching to the focal point motif.. i just thought it looks so much better with it. On every piece of clothing (except shirt) i used up to 3 markers to color and blend in. The hair is blond because i submitted this card to the Challenge No 4 over on the "Copic Challenge" blog.

I have just visited your blog for the first time because someone told me you did colouring tutorials - something I desparately need help with. I love the tutorials for colouring flesh. It is a great help to me and I'll be back quite soon to work my way through the other tutorials. Thank you so much for posting this very helpful information.

Claudia - Your simple is my complicated! Your airbrushing is exciting - I have seen it in the book; your card makes it look so finished it's beautiful. I love the way you have the tag hanging from the ribbon wrapped around the paper and finished with the flower - what a great design! And of course Pink is my favorite color being a survivor! Hugs
