Sundays w/Crissy #2 Dots /PTE #64 Aqua/Town Scrapper Pt.2 BH Girlie Challenge

Hi Everyone
Hope this finds all doing well. Still fighting a migraine.  This little cutie didn't help any.  I made a couple of  Rookie mistake with her.  I had everything layed out  to put the card together and then got distracted & some of my elements got seprated.  Did not realize that I left the Dots out till I started to input the challenges.  That wasn't too much of a biggy.  However the big mistake was when I got cocky after coloring the body.  I have been afraid of using black.  When I first started card making it was Halloween so black was a big factor.  Well, I didn't like how my black turned out.  The reason for this is that I only had one shade to work with.  Kind of hard to get more than a flat black effect when your only using one marker.  Well, I decided that since I now had a few more marks to try black again.  Well, her face gave me a BIG Reality Check!!!!!!!  I lost controll of the color.  At one point all I had was a BIG Black Spot!!!  Since I'm working with limited resources right now.  I had no choice but to at least try and see if I could save this one.  After HOURS and I do mean HOURS of working with it I was able to save her.  She was to be my Niece's Mothers Day card from her two boys.  But I put sooooo much into this one I don't think that I can let her go.  You know, I have got to stop that.  I can't seem to let them go.  Well, it is Derby week here in Kentucky this week.  And that means HATS.  I think that is what drew me to this one.  I've renamed her Oswalds Goes to the Derby.
Well, since it looks like I am going to have to make my niece another card I had better get to the details of my entry.  Thank you for considering my entry! Have a good rest of the week!!

  2. I love how you highlighted the hat and purse. I'm still learning how to highlight, sometimes its good, sometimes not so much! lol. I also did Oswalda but I used just a little more gray because I find colouring with black really hard too. You did a fabulous job!

  3. This is just great! I love all the embellies and colours!
    Thanks for playing at Sundays With Crissy!!
