Makeup 4 the weekend Challenge

>> Friday, January 15, 2010

Ok, can I just say that i am TI_RED! I'm typing up this post at near 1 am because i didnt make my challenge card until AFTER the PMS release party! What was i thinking?!

This week's Makeup Artist Challenger was Tina Hale! Now i know i dont always get the chance to participate in the makeup 4 the weekend challenges, but her challenge was to make anything birthday because her birthday is coming up in just a few days!!!!

(by the way, tina is the sweetest thing over, i got the sweetest gift from her today in the mail! i'll post it in a coupla days when i get a picture of it!)

SO not only did i want to make a card in honor of sweet tina's birthday... but we just released so many fun birthday images and sentiments last night... how could i resist playing?!

Here is my card using Bobo the Clown Fairy!

Ok, i'll be honest here... i had NO idea where i was going with this layout? Other than the fact that i was too tired to get up and was using random scraps of paper (hence the circle with the scallop that had been cut out of it! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
But once it all started to come together i thought it was kinda fun!

I also decided to play a little with my copics and color in a way that is entirely not the way i color. Um, i think i'll go back to my standard way, but it was fun to go outside of the box for a little bit. :)

Here are some detail shots for you...

I also for i think the first time ever, did the inside of my card! Not just stamped the inside, i've done that silly! But i actually layered some paper, made it match the front sort of thing. Also using random scraps, but hey, that seemed to be the route i took for the front, so whatever!

and now for....

OK Katie I think your gonna have to do some colouring lessons like your makeup tutorials!!!
The balloons look so real the way you show the transparency of them.
