Dance like no one is watching....

Hi Blogging Beauties,

Here is another image I coloured up at the Conference.
At the conference I was sitting next to Annette and for those of you who know Annette, know that she LOVES the colour purple.  I am not a big purple fan, but I was really trying to get out of my comfort zone and learn new techniques at the conference.  I wanted to have a go at colouring hair with black and purple Copics.
When I got home I put her on a card and then I posted her off to Annette and she received the card yesterday.  Consequently I didnt have a lot of purple papers or embellishments in my stash.  But I found a scrap of purple paper and teamed it with some black and white.

I layered three flowers together and sprayed them with glimmer mist.  The top little rose I added Kindy Glitz to the edges.  The swirl I made using Kaisercraft gemstones.  This cute little Odd Girl stamp is called "Dancin' Mae" I bought off Sammi.  If you want her too you can get her here.

The Copics I used were:
Hair: 100, C-7, C-5, BV08, V09
Skin: E00, E11, E21, E04, R20
Purples: BV08, V17, V15
Greys: C-1. C-3

So I thought I would enter her in:

Thanks for stopping by,


P.S. Carol, in answer to your question about how Tommy and Ellie are getting on....It took Ellie about a week to accept Tommy.  But now they are pretty good mates.  They sleep together during the day and play together.  Ellie does tire of Tommy's constant playfulness and did snap at him and left a scar on his forehead...but I think he deserved it as he is going through that puppy nippy phase.  We take them for a walk every day.  Tommy still likes to be picked up and cuddled.  Ben has been training Tommy every day and he is pretty smart.  Even Ellie is learning a few new things too.  Overall we love them both to death and are so happy we got Tommy as he has brought a lot of fun into our lives.

Alicia....I bet Annette loved this card...just the right amount of purple. What terrific colouring of the hair. I must by a black pen so can do black hair for a change.
