Lasting Memories #154

It's Sunday so that means it's time for a new challenge at 
The challenge is to try something new!
There is alot of new things (for me) on this LO!
First and foremost is, I made my own Background, this started out being a winter white embossed piece of DP but I used a piece of lace and glimmer mist. COOL STUFF! I colored on my diecuts (self made using SU in the bigshot) with prisma colored pencils on patterned paper but they looked to new for my pic, so I wadded it up. (Boy did that make me nervous! See Claire, I'm always afraid I'm going to mess it up at the end! LOL! I sprayed my paper lace doily with glimmer mist also All th diecuts are from SU! Bling and the frame is from my stash.

I immediately thought of my BEAUTIFUL Ringo when I saw this BEAUTIFUL digi! Our challenge at Lacy Sunshine Challenges is called Favorite Things, I made a LO of my beautiful Ringo!

I used this Beautiful digi from Lacy Sunshine called 'Dorina & Bardolph.' 
Colored her with prisma colored pencils and added stickle's in some places. Cut them out with grand nestabilities.

They are celebrating it with a Bloghop! It's everyone's fav!
So here is my entry (That I won BTW) using a Delicious Doodles image,
She is such a beauty, I wanted her to be the main focal point of my card. I colored her with copic markers and I colored the butterflies with prisma colored pencils. I printed her out twice so I could cut out the butterflies and I used a Stampin' Up butterfly punch. (A little dimension)
OK, I had to add stickles

Digitally Sweet #47

We have a new challenge at Digitally Sweet and it's everyone's favorite!
The wonderful Digi Darla is sponsoring us this week!
I made a LO using 'Kitty Face'

This was quite challenging to digitally color.
First I removed the background and then used the airbrush to add hints of color except for the eyes. MDS2 and paintbrush helped me.
