Rosie with Balloons...

Good morning and I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! How about this then?!  4 cards in one week!!  Today, my card is made using one of Digistamp Boutique's Rosie Collection, but with a difference...
...In this image, Rosie is normally holding a flower in her hand, but I decided to use her a bit differently and fussy cut her out so that I could have her holding some balloons instead!  The papers I used are from Prima's Anna Marie & Sunny Days, and First Edition's Boho Chic paper pads...
...I coloured Rosie with my Pro/Flexmarkers and decided to go for a bold, red dress this time.  Here's the colours I used :
Skin - (can you guess?!) Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink, Coral
Hair - Champagne, Sandstone, Sunflower, Caramel
Hairband - Cerise, Shocking Pink, Vermillion
Dress - Red, Berry, Crimson, Burgundy
Shoes - Soft Peach, Rose Peach, Honeycomb, Spice

...I created the balloons using my Spellbinders circle dies and added an oval sentiment which is Welsh for 'Happy Birthday'.  I finished with a few pearls, some red glitter along the edge of her dress and some gold thread for the balloon strings.
Hope you like my red and pink creation and that you get inspiration to have a go at altering your images to give them more scope!  Thanks for dropping by today and I'll be back on Tuesday with some inspiration for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers - don't forget there's still time to enter into this week's 'Flower' challenge with Team 2 and the girls have some wonderful inspiration on the PfP blog, so why not hop on over and have a look?!
See you soon!  Hugs,

Hi Lisa, ooooh this one is fab!!! Love what you've done with the image, have to admit to being very booooring indeed when it comes to my digis - I print, colour and pop on a card! Have only ever altered one image and that's it - do like it when other people do it tho. Especially when they print out one part of the image really large - must have a go one day!

Sorry I've been absent the last week - this posting every day got me loads of comments and now I'm well behind!!!

Hope you are having a good weekend,

Sarah
