Sister Card

I made this card for the twin not in the hospital. One of my twin nieces is still in the hospital and missing her twin. I sent this card for her to her sister at home. I used my wonderful Sugar Nellies stamp and my favorite nestibility...curly rectangle mega nestie. I seem to use it the most so it must be my favorite.
I used my Prismacolored Markers to color. I love this mix of colors...here is the recipe:
  • clothing light cerulean blue, light aqua and inkessential opaque white pen for highlights

  • patches, belt deco pink

  • flowers mulberry, light olive, inkessential pen

  • hair light tan, light umber

  • hair band mulberry

  • ground light tan

I used the light cerulean blue and the blender pen to haze around the image. This really is a fun way to punch your image. I added a heart brad at the top for a little glamour.

I used the label one nestie for sentiment and attached the lips and kisses brads for some fun. The ribbon on the front and inside is from KC and company and was the perfect match. I hope she likes this card.
Its only 4 am and now I think I can take a rest. I woke up worried about something....don`t have a clue what...must have been from a dream. I just couldn`t snap out of it so off to the computer. At least no one is yelling at me. Yesterday I was signing a card when I was called and wrote handmade for you by Mom. Oh, I am glad I could explain this on the card. .. Friends understand (I hope). Life has a way of getting in the way of stamping sometime.
Hugs
Heather

Oh, Heather! Your coloring on this is absolutely wonderful! You couldn't have picked better designer paper for the mat, either. So pretty! I see you did the halo, as you mentioned you would try, and it turned out just beautiful. Aren't these images fun to color? I love it! -- Leslie Miller
