live the life

Claudia_Rosa_the life you dreamed_1
hello friends… this card has been sitting on my desk since FRIDAY!
I almost did not want to post it… today I felt I should start a new card but I broke out in hives once again and my head is exploding. None of my allergy medicines seams to work. So I decided to post the card anyways. The reason why I am not confident with it is, I have found that the lines of Tilda’s hair stamped off much thicker than usually and the area is small so I did not get the high contrast of my usual coloring done at all. The same happened with her shirt. The image was colored almost completely with a variety of PRISMACOLOR pencils – except the face. Maybe this could also be the reason why iam feeling unsecure about the card.

Claudia..you are being too hard on yourself! This card look stunning to me! I'm sorry you are suffering from hives! I went through a period where I was covered in hives from head to toe. If I scratched my skin or even brushed up against something a new hive would appear. It was horrible and my stomach hurt from it too. I ended up going on a cocktail of allergy meds including prednisone to get rid of it. I had to be weened off these meds slowly or the hives would return. I saw an allergist. I do hope you find a solution! Get well soon!
