I'm A Little Late

So sorry about missing the mark on this one gang!  I was supposed to post my project for Make It Colourful yesterday, but I'm getting over being sick on top of a HECTIC and EXCITING work week and then was invited to breakfast yesterday to find out that MY SON GOT ENGAGED!!!!  Yeah, it's been quite the eventful couple of weeks!  So I'm posting my project this morning since.... I start the Master Cleanse today and quite frankly could use a little diversion!  LOL!
So this project features this week's sponsor over at Make It Colourful, Whimsy Stamps.  The stamps I used are Whimsy stamp, Girl With Kitty and Make It Crafty's Crooked Picket Fence.  The background coloring is actually from a "doodle" page that I was doing while practicing with my new Copic airbrush system.  I ended up printing out the Crooked Fence over top of it and coloring in the fence to finalize it.  I think the background really turned out great and created it's own depth for this project!  It looks almost out of focus behind the bright coloring on the Girl With Kitty.  That's what made me think of the sentiment.... it looked like a picture.  Anyway, I'm sure you will get to see more of my "doodles" with my Copic airbrush down the road, as I'm still learning new techniques and experimenting with it.  Hopefully you can tell that the challenge this week over at Make It Colourful is shadows and depth.

Head over to Make It Colourful and check out what the rest of the design team made.  I really am surrounded by the most talented people!!!   Also the challenge prize this week is 5 DIGIS from our sponsor Whimsy Stamps!!!  Good luck to everyone who enters.... let's see what you do with shadows and depth!!!!

This is such a great card and I love how you did that background! The way you colored the girl from Meljen's makes it look like it's a different style of stamp - love that! So glad were on the same team. ;D *Hugs
