Sassy C4C#25 / Wildflower Kids Think Green Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Hope this finds all having a good start to the week.  And that all had a good weekend. Even though it looks like my entry (for last week) below did not manage to take any prizes I just wanted  to Thank You  for all the kind comments that you left. This one still holds a special place.

Now for this weeks Post.
 I had started working on this image Sassy Hatter for a St. Patty card for my husband.  I was not feeling well when I started looking for a image to use.    The color image was done in green so my head went with St. Patty.  It finly registered after seeing a comerical for the Disney Alice movie comming out that she was the mad hatter. I thought it was strange that she was doing tea.  I know the title for the image is Sassy Hatter but like I said I was sick things weren't clicking too well at the time. And I couldn't help myself I had to put in a picture with my Belleek teapot that hubby got me when we went to Irland and went to the Belleek factory.  Ok, I know you all are busy so I will get on with my Entry.

  1. Oh wow! This is just gorgeous. Your coloring on this image is just amazing... I love all the tones of green in the hat and shoes. And I love your ribbon treatment! Thank you for participating in the Wild Flower Wednesday challenge! Hugs!!

  2. This is fantastic! Your coloring rocks and your ribbon is awesome! I love this card and know that your husband will too!

  3. This is amazing and your coloring is outstanding! Love how you used the ribbon and using her as a St. Patty's Day iamge is a great idea.

  4. Hi and thank you for the very nice comment on my blog. I use Tim Holtz distress inks when I colour my images (I use both stamp pads and refillers) because I think it's easier to get shades and nuances than with pencils - I've tried and didn't like the outcome ;)

    There is a nice tutorial on how to do on:

    I don't use that kind of brush though, just a regular brush and make sure I have lots of water in a bowl very close by ;)

    And for details like clothes and such you can dip your brush in water that you have put a tiny amount of perfect pearls in. That will give the details a lovely sparkly look in the colour you choose.

    Hope this was helpful.

  5. Holy Cow BJ!!! This is absolutely FABULOUS!!!
