Colorful Angelica

Colorful Angelica - The challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio is to make your own designer paper. I must admit that this was a bit of a challenge for me, as I usually head straight to my DP drawers to create. Luckily at Stamp TV they had a video showing how to make your own DP, so I tried their technique and I am pleased with the result. It was a lot easier then I thought it would be. Give it a whirl and join in the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio. For the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio you must use a Michelle Perkett image. Don't have any? At Michelle's group on Paper Craft Planet, she has lots of Freebies.

The challenge at Creative Card Crew is bugs and butteries. You can use any image to join in the fun there.

For my DP I scored the paper and then inked 2 different colors of ink. My sentiment is by Hot Off The Press. The butterfly is from the Spring/Easter seasonal shop at Hobby Lobby. I finished the card off with some aqua gemstones.

Every since I seen Michelle Perkett's blog header with her merpeople Soul-mates colored with multicolored hair, I have wanted to color some of her other mermaids that way. I finally did it. Oh, what fun I had. Angelica is colored with Copic's. I used something from almost every color group that Copic makes. The only one I didn't use was Blue Violet. I added some Stickles to the seaweed in her hair and then added some tiny gemstones.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
