She's Got The Look!

Man, now, I'm happy with this Gerbera Daisy card! I made one of those charts things with the different Copic colors I had, so I could easily match stuff. I picked out a bunch that looked so right for the paper, but than the flower was still too bright. Than using an image I thought wasn't dark enough, I grabbed E04, and colored it. All I used was E04, and the blender, and wow! I was one happy lady! I pushed out the color in the center, since I didn't have another color to really blend it with, but I loved how it turned out! I cropped my flower a little different than I normally would have, didn't want you thinking I totally spaced out, and didn't realize I was missing part of the flower! So, here's my Daisy card with Angelee SWIC! This is also the sketch for the week from Amy R's blog. I didn't have a sentiment I wanted on the side, so I left that part blank.
Supplies: TAC Angelee SWIC, Gebera Daisy, DCWV cardstock, stickles, nesties.
Copics: E04, F21, BG93, C1 and blender.
Than I had stamped off an extra Fancy Nancy when I made Gabi's scrapbook page the other night. This little girl reminds me of Fancy Nancy. Does she remind you all of her? I just think Fancy Nancy when I see her. So, she's got red hair because of that! I just want to make her clothes all wild and fun like Fancy Nancy, too! Could be I just think this way because my kids school just had a book fair. Anyhow, I colored her in, and just sat there smiling at her! Such nice bright fun colors! I used A Little Whimsy paper pack. I love the pops of black in this paper. I totally cased the frame thing from Jen del Muro. How cute does her card look? I really like how she did that frame, and wanted to try it myself.
Supplies: TAC Everythings Blooming, A Little Whimsy paper, nesties, stickles, EK punch, brads, gems, DCWV cardstock.

Copics: RV21, RV23, YR 04, YR07, E00, E51, R02, B05, V04, V17, B00, Y06, Y08, YG03, C1.
