"Pretty in Pink"

Happy Tuesday! It's Beth again, to share another Besties project. This sweet image can be found here.https://www.etsy.com/listing/177366224/instant-download-digital-digi-stamps-big?ref=shop_home_active_16

This was quite interesting for me. Using a fun hair color and a technique I have not done often.

I looked at Deirdre tutorial, it is the post previous to this one, on the technique of dotting. I have done this before but using it for curly hair is fabulous! You get depth and texture. I loved it.

So much fun stepping "out of the box" with hair color.

Copic colors I used.

Left over creative goodies were used. Yippee love using odds and ends up.

Such a fun card to make. I enjoyed every moment of this project. 
Thanks Sherri for sharing your time and talents your images are so much fun to work with.
Thanks for checking out the blog.
Questions and comments are always welcome. 

Until next time.
Happy Crafting,

This month the team and I have been focusing on fun hair colors, so I took the opportunity to share a fun way I like to color curly hair using this new image

Like coloring straight hair I like to add the deepest color for shadows and depth, with the pen to paper dot method.  I wanted to create my shadows and depth around the face, head band, bow and the tips of the hair

Using the mid-tone color I made dots from the dark color moving out into the white space

Repeating steps 1-2 I added the lightest color filling in more of the white space

Repeating steps 1-3, 1 color at a time I continued to fill in the white space until I was happy

I like to add the little extra dots outside of the lines to give a little more character to the shape of the hair

I hope that you find this tutorial fun and will add it to your list of things to try

I'm Welcome Crafty friends to MyBestie! 
I am enjoying the summer and with that that means coloring fun summer images. So today I am sharing this cute image that totally makes me think of a summer fun picnic. You can fine her here.

I used Doodlebug Design "Sunkissed" 6x6 paper pack (again) for this card... Can I just say this paper pack is so perfect for summer card making.

The stamp is from a Studio Calico PL kit, and the solid card stock is just basic yellows and oranges from my paper stash.

Having a Fun Hair Day.

Hi Everybody. It's Beth again. I wanted to share this cute Bestie image #644. You can purchase this downloadable image from Sherri Baldy's Etsy site.

We were asked to challenge ourselves with the hair color. Well let's just say I'm not very adventurous with my hair color. I have always stayed "in the box". So I went Crazy, for me, with orange.

This was bold for me. I really ended up enjoying the fun color. I need to find some time to play with vibrant colors for hair.
I made this card into an ice cream gift card holder. I can't wait to give it away.

Once again I used up lots of odds and ends.
Some Stampin Up retired paper. Echo Park paper from the "I Love Sunshine" pack.
Stampin Up border punch. 
I hope you enjoyed this sweet girl. You can find the image here.
Please feel free to ask questions. 
Until next time,

Hey! It's another Color and Create me, Tiffany.

I am super excited about today's card from My Besties. I chose an image that reminded me of the phrase "Peek a boo".
Your can find this image here...

 I made a really simple card that says a lot.
The image used is framed in a Mama Elephant die.

 On the back of all my cards I use a personal stamp that I had made at my local office store.

 I used this paper pack by Doodlebug Design which I am loving. 
It is perfect for this time of the year.

This was a up close and personal image these are all the markers I used.
Skin: E21/11/13/15
Eyes: YG91/93/95/99
Hair: N10/08/06/04
V17 & BV08
Bow: RV02/04/06/19
Yellow button

 I keep all my embellishment in these cases that I purchased from Stampin' Up. Each case is covered with color card stock and inside are embellishments that match the outside.

Here is the finished card!
