Pucker Up Buttercup and Two Sentiments

Does this girl have attitude or what!!! Love her, purchased this image from Mo's Digital Pencil a while ago but haven't had a chance to colour so got stuck in a few days ago and coloured a collection of cards. This is the start of them.

With this one I wanted her to be blonde, green eyes. Felt it came out okay and decided to put her on a bright pink cardbase with a layer of fun foam between her and the card. Finished her off with 3 little gems, a wee bit of sparkle on her top and some glossy accents on her lips.

I cracked up laughing as I was editing this photo, she looks like she has just blown a bubble. Big bubbles no troubles, will need to watch my Glossy accents better when adding. I like the way the shadows actually look as though they are going across her face, so quite pleased with this image.

The girl comes with the two sentiments. Love this one ' Don't hate me cause I'm beautiful......hate me becauseI'm younger than you are!'. And of course the 'Pucker Up Buttercup'.

In this instance I have decided to go with blue eyes, top and blonde/brown hair. Added glitter to the top the same as the other image.

Sultry isn't she. Glossy Accents a bit better here. Then decide to have a go at making a part Acetate card.

Bought a 12 x 12 pad of spots and stripes acetate in all rainbow colours. I cut them all down to 6x6 so I would use them up. I attached a piece of card stock at the back by making the card stock slightly longer than the acetate then turned down an edge that I attached the acetate to. Used the purple stripes to hide the double sided tape.

Cut down my image to fit on the large card and show plenty of acetate. attached with double sided tape and hide on the inside by attaching another piece of card stock on the inside.

A few purple gems and all done.

Since theres not much going on at the moment with Challenges slowing down and people getting into Christmas/New Year mode I though I would space out my colouring to two a day.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and come again soon.

This is sadly the last Challenge to be held at Papertake Weekly and the choice is yours to what previous challenge you want to use. I have gone with probably the easiest way to go 'Anything Goes'. Thank you so much ladies for the wonderful challenges you have had and the inspiration on the blog. You will be missed.

I have not gone with the optional twist of Non traditional Christmas.

The image I have used I have had for quite some time, and the striped acetate is new.

Gorgeous coloring on this image. Had not seen it before but is is so cute. Love how you colored it up both times. And I have some of that printed acetate, but have not used it yet, now you have inspired me to get it out after the holidays and have another look to see what I can come up with. Thanks for that!
