Blonde v Brunette

Click to Enlarge

Hi Everybody,

Well I went back to Saturated Canary and bought some more of the beautiful images ...  and this one is called   "Bubbles"

I just love these characters and they are so easy to colour.

I printed them off in draft so that they can be coloured with Spectrum Noir ... and I added two to each sheet of  smooth white  A4 160 gsm paper ... and that will leave me enough space for me to cut them out with Spellbinders.

Although the image is the same I have coloured them  completely different.

One I have kept to Blonde hair and blue eyes and in pale colours ....

I have added sparkle to the dress and the ribbon is from my "stash" and the pearls have been created with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and the tutorial    Creating Your Own Pearls  will show you what I did.

The other I have done in more vibrant colours ... and goodness me there are the flowers again..... Wonder how they got there ????

This one I have given brown hair and eyes and I asked my film crew which he preferred and he said the Blonde one as he was a sucker for blondes ..... I prefer the brown haired one.

This one has been added to some paper that I designed myself and I have been asked to show you the papers before I add all the embellishments....

 Here it is and the watermark is there for obvious reasons ... and it is the swirl that I picked out with a glue pen and sprinkled it with glitter.

Once I get enough to make a collection then I will add them to the website.

Hugs xx

  9. Difficult to choose a favourite, I love them both. Thank you for showing the paper Christina, it's great to be able to see it in all its glory -it is soooo pretty! Pat x

  10. I am drawn to the blond. Not because she's blond, but I like blue better than pink (not my favorite color). Now if you had done the Blue with brunette - that would be my favorite. It doesn't really matter though - your talent is awesome. I LOVE everything you do. I check your blog every day just to see what you are up to.

  11. OMG, Christina. You've done it again....these two SC images are just Gorjuss.....I can't even pick one b/c I love both. TFS and Have a fun weekend.

  14. Christina I laughed out loud when you asked where the flowers came from on the brighter colored one. You are so funny. I enjoy you so much and I love both of the cards. I think my favorite is the brighter colored one. Thanks for sharing.

  15. I love your cards this one is so different I like the blue with brown hair and flowers I just want them all xx
