Hi everyone! Did your weekend go by as quickly as mine? It was a great weekend, but man it flew! I played along with the Clean and Simple challenge on the Outlawz yesterday with this card.
The hand is one of three in a new set at Squigglefly by Lynne Stansbery called Making A Point.
I colored the image with Copic markers and then cut it out and tied a piece of twine around the finger. I had colored the plain white cotton crochet thread with a copic marker and didn't let it dry completely before I tied it and the blue ink bled into the finger. I had to scrub it away with the colorless blender and re-color the finger. Let that be a lesson to me for my impatience! Later I went back and used the colorless blender again to make little moons in the fingernails. It looks more pronounced in the photo than it does in real life. Do you think I should go back and color in the moons, or do you like them?
The sentiment was computer generated and the inside says "for someone as sweet as you! Happy Birthday!" I think the same hand would be great for congratulating someone with a "You're Number One!" sentiment too!
Today is a brand new challenge at Squigglefly's blog! Holley's team, the Hobbyist's are up to bat with a Seeing Red challenge! I hope you'll try to play along too, but by all means make time to go see what the designers have done!
