Cutie Pie Megan

This is actually my second post of the day, so scroll down if you want to see more.

There are so many crafters out there that inspire me.  Today I want to mention Tiffany whose work I adore mostly because of the exquisite colours she combines, the beautiful use of the most gorgeous patterned papers and I find that she does not over embellish her cards, which I love, she adds just enough and she is capable of many different styles!  Go on over and look at her work, it's totally amazing, every single piece of art she showcases is beautiful.

So today I tried to be more colourful, and I was thinking about my niece Megan in South Africa.  So, what better time to actually colour in an image from The Greeting Farm called Megan!

Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Patterned Paper (stash)
Ink: Copic Markers; Memento Tuxedo Black; Soft Pool Shadow Ink (Hero Arts)
Stamps: The Greeting Farm; Lawn Fawn
Other: Gems ( from my friend Tiffany); Border punch (Stampin' Up)

I really loved colouring in this cute image!  I just love her wild curly hair!  The blue strip of paper was actually a piece from a Hero Arts notecard which I stamped with a tiny heart I found in one of my Lawn Fawn sets.  The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn.

She looks very bossy!

Have an awesome day!
