Lorna Loch & Nessie


Hi everyone.  I have another great Simply B Stamps preview for you.  This is Lorna Loch & Nessie.  Isn't she cool?  I had such a great time coloring this.  I used Copics (of course).  I put my crafting tiara on, turned on Dancing with the Stars and got to work. 

The background paper is from Graphic 45.  It has beautiful fish all through it.  Unfortunately, I covered them all up.  The ovals are from Spellbinders as are the flourishes.  I used a wave border punch for the bottom and added some white pen to the tips of the waves. 

I must say the coloring is my favorite part.  It takes me so long to figure out what to do with it once I am finished.  I finally got my flying babies to stop stealing my markers as I color.  Now they just want to sit on my head while I work.  Then they fight over who gets to be up there and who gets to chew the tiara.  That's when everyone has to go to bed.  We will be doing it all again tonight.  I have cards due all week.  Sydney will have lots of paper scraps to chew on this week. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to enter for a chance at my blog candy.  The time is drawing near.

Wow, your colors are so vibrant! So pretty and I can see a peek of the fishes in the back, what a great paper choice for this image. The way you did those little waves along the bottom is a great idea!

Beck - this card is perfection. The colors, the way you have her hair "shine" - everything, although it looks like she has one big boob instead of 2 little boobs - otherwise incredible - you are the best!!
