There are two posts today so to see the bright and playful Hambo Hoedown card, please scroll down!
The new challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge is a Recipe: 1 image, 2 embellies, 3 dp's! Stitchy Bear Stamps gave Penny's Design Team some images to work with for this challenge! I chose the super-cute Alice. She was already shaded which made it so much easier for me to colour in the dark and light areas. I usually struggle with the light source and shading, so this took the guess work out! I coloured Alice with my Copic Markers (dress-YR18, YR15, Y17, YR21; apron & socks-Y17, YR21, Y21; skin-E21, E00, E000; lips-R24, YR15; eyes-BG45, BG07, BG02; hair-E99, E97, Y21). My 9 year old daughter has claimed this card for her next birthday. I think perhaps that this card may be better for a teenager, but she just adores this one!
I took the 2 embellies to mean two different types of embellishments (I couldn't limit it to one flower!). So I added the flowers and ribbon. I still felt like it needed more so I added some flourishes with my paper piercer. Actually, I used some of the SU designer paper that goes in this pack to line up my flourishes:
