7 Kids Challenge - #12 Hot or Cold

Happy New Year! (are you sick of hearing it yet?)

Our Challenge today at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge is Hot or Cold - Choose Your Extreme! I chose cold and went for a rainy scene...

You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund
Ink:  Memento, Copics

I colored my image with Copics, focusing on the light and shadows. The background was colored with my Copics Airbrush System and hand drew in some extra grass and weeds. 

I made a bouquet with 5 leaves and 4 flowers.

This will be a birthday card for a loved one with a January Birthday. 

I glued a charm onto my ribbon and attached another charm with a chain. 

I used the Spellbinders Frameabilities Scalloped Edge Frame to cut out the image, and then lifted the frame with dimensionals.

I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers...

I will also be entering this card in the following challenges: 

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Blues Challenge
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

WOW I love how you added shadow where the umbrella covers her body and face. Looks like a picture from a book and not hand colored at all. Gorgeous!! Love all the little details....especially how you popped up the frame!! I might have to try that out soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

I look forward to working with you on 7 Kids!!

Wow! Amazing, amazing card! Love the way you colored in the adorable image! Is that a die you used to frame the image, or did you use a border and corner punch for it? :)
