Color Create and Sugar Nellie

Hello everyone, Today is the Colour Create Challenge. I have inked up my new Manga girl by Sugar Nellie for this challenge card. SHE IS SO CUTE!!

The colors that our very own Dena has picked for this challenge is "Pink, Orange and Green". The optional extra is "Hearts".

I have painted her with my copic markers, watercolors pencils, and used my distressed inks to shade. I did get brave and get out my copic air gun to put the blue and gray background. Not so sure I like it or not. I have also added small tiny half pearls to Manga girl's dress and I have also used stickles on her. For just a little bit of shine here and there. Then took my white cardstock and hand cut 2 hearts stuck them half behind my image. I call them peek a boo hearts and I think they are perfect with this little sweet image. I have inked them up just a tad with my distressed inks and put a few pretty pearls on them I also added some prima flowers and those pretty little roses. I used my punch by McGill for the pine leaves and added a beautiful butterfly charm by Heart and soul and a ribbon by stamping up. This card has been sewn on the inside and out.
I hope it will inspire you to get over to Color Create Challenge and play along with us. The fabulous sponsor this challenge is Crafty Ribbons.
