I so look forward to the new challenge at Less is More, Week 22 - Colour. The fabulous Ladies at LIM have challenged us to make a card with shades of blue. When I think about blue I instantly think of "boys" and I didn't want to make something for a boy!!
As a result of participating with LIM I have found some wonderful crafters and some wonderful new stamping companies. One particular company that I learned about and am totally impressed with is La-La Land Crafts. I am totally in love with Irina's images. The first imagae I colored is called Fancy Marci and I used their online example and tutorial as my guide for coloring. I absolutely love how this came out. I spent about 4 hours coloring this image...and I think it was time well spent.
I also wanted to shout out a great big thank you to all the LIMettes for all your fabulous comments on my blog!!
As inspiration for the design on the card I turned to The Sweetest Thing - Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #124. Although I wanted to go crazy with the DP and ribbon - I kept it very clean and simple.

Ink: PrismaColor Colored Pencils
