Birthday card

This is my second attempt at posting this. My first was deleted and I don't know why other than them saying I was 'phishing'. 

Phishing meaning: 
  1. the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.
    "an email that is likely a phishing scam"

Since I don't sell anything or ask for emails I don't know what they are on about.

But after it as removed I had unbelievable issues and had to download the latest update for the MAC.  Ran my AVG and made sure all is ok.

Once done everything ran smoothly again.  So here goes.

I stamped this image and finally got around to doing it. Because of the size of the full image, I had actually had it for quite some time before I finally coloured her. With the trend now on slimline I decided to colour her for a card.

I actually have this as a stamp, but it is now not available as a stamp but you can download and use for free as long as you remember to give credit to the group who own it. There are actually a number of images with girls with voluptuous hair does. There are also some wonderful floral images available. And now the bad news, I know I have that info somewhere will have to look back and find it. If you are interested please let me know and I will follow up.

So back to the image, First I coloured her with Copics and the humming bird with Copics, I then added some sparkle to the humming bird.

I decided I needed to do something with the background.

I masked her and the humming bird. I then blended Distress Oxides in lightest two blues, then purple and then the smallest amount of Black. I then came back in leaving it light around her front an the bird. After I took off the mask I then came back in and blended away those white bits you always end up with.

I still wanted more so I decided to use a circular star stencil with BoBunny clear glitter embossing paste.

I love how it turned out and hope someone will enjoy this as too.

I've been having troubles too! Blogs & sites I have visited often were giving me "unsafe" site warnings and my firewall wouldn't let me visit.
