Here's Looking At You Kid

Okay, I really lost my mojo last night while trying to make this card. I just didn't like anything I did, so I finally just left it alone and I'm not happy with it. I did learn something cool making this card though, you can erase white gel pen! That really takes the fear out of practicing your highlights. I don't know if it works with all white gel pens, but the Inksentials white gel pen definitely erases!



The title of this post is not what I would make this card say, but it is what kept going through my mind while I was making it! LOL!
Hopefully my creativity will kick in tonight and I'll have something better for you to look at tomorrow!
Thanks for looking!

I think it's precious Holly!

When I first looked at the card, I could hear the little girl saying to herself something like, "Mirror, Mirror in my hand" or something corny like that. I could also hear her thinking to herself...When I grow up, I want to be.......

I love the card! I might even go so far as to say it's one of my most favorite cards you've made :~)

Thanks for sharing with us...you've still got it :~)

Lost your mojo...NEVER, not on this one anyway! I think it's adorable! The colors are awesome and the highlights on her sleeve are PERFECT! I loved this image when I first saw it. I'm glad you decided to use her because it's one of my downloads and now you have sparked my imagination. THANKS!

Hugs~

As much as I like the card, I think I know what you're talking about. It may have something to do with the blue and green being in the same "tone" family - too much "similar" together. Does that make sense?

Maybe try a soft yellow or pink to pull the other colors out of the image.

Don't give up on ole Mojo - when he's acting up that's usually a sign of good things to come!*LOL*
{mwah!}

Holly - I think the card is perfect! I wish I could "lose' my mojo like you do! TFS!!

Gosh, how did I get 3 days behind in looking at your creations?!! Well, Holly, this card sure is adorable -- and "Here's looking at you, kid" would be a cute saying for it, IMO. I'm sure you will think of other great ones too. :-)

See now I'm thinking that I like this card, perhaps if you used the Pink and yellow from the hat... KWIM? She is such a cutie and maybe the softer colors would make you like it? IDK, it looks great....

You are a silly girl. It's adorable. I need to play with my squigglefly images. I purchased several and ah life keeps making me clean toilets. Dang it. Have you been to the wedding yet? When is the wedding. I want to see Holly in her pretty new dress. Seriously.
