This is my second post for today - that's something new for me :) I wanted to post another card for Mema's Challenge - Anything Goes with a Twist of Red. I made this card long before I ever thought of having a blog. I may not have even known about blogs when I made it. The stamp belonged to a friend so, again, I don't know the name. But I love the image. All the papers are from my stash. I used a Fiskars corner punch that also embossed. And I added Stickles to her ankle bracelet and earrings. I took the photo outside on the deck.
I've made mention that I line dance, but I also perform African dance, which is why this image is so special to me. (I could go on and on about my passion for dance, but I'll not do it now.) There are people I could have given this card to, but somehow I haven't been able to part with it ... yet. You will notice that there is no shading on this image. I used Bic Mark-Its, and I DIDN'T KNOW A THING ABOUT SHADING!!! There, I've come clean and admitted it. I colored an image and was totally ignorant about shading and light and blending and so on. It wasn't until I discovered card making blogs that I found out about the artistry of coloring. My dancer looks as if a child colored her, and I know she'd look prettier if she were properly colored, but I love her so much that I just don't care. I hope the lack of artistic flair doesn't bother you.
By the way, I'm sure it's obvious that even though I now know a bit more about coloring as an art form, I don't do much better, but at least I try!
Supplies: Bic Mark-Its, Fiskars Corner Punch, Stickles, My Stash
