The Coolest Kid

Happy Monday to you, hope you're having a good one.  Our house is on a weeks vacation which has so far meant finally catching up on laundry with the new washer (that actually works (!!)......three's a charm they say!), and completely decluttering my bedroom.  Yay for vacation....gotta love the rest and recuperation.

Anyhow everyone in the house seems to be doing their thing at present, so hopefully no-one will miss me while I sneak on here.

A card for you today and this one was given to my eldest dd for her Birthday a while ago.  I usually tread on thin ice creating cards for her.....has to be cool.....has to be pretty, you know the drill.  I think I covered the main two criteria with this one, but the real reason I think it's perfect for her is 'the look'.  You know 'the look', the one they give you when (in their opinion) you're being very 'Mom'ish, uncool, generally behaving like......a parent!  Well this image has it to perfection......'the look'!

See what I mean?

It's the first time I've coloured this image, which is a Lil' Lolita digi from Tickled Pink Stamps, even though it's one of my faves and been sitting in my stash forever.

Papers are from Authentique 'Journey' and colouring is with Copic's.

I messed up the hair a little because I chose 3 colours I wanted to use, then immediately paid no attention and coloured her whole head with the medium shade.  I had no choice then but to shade with my darkest colour and also streak a little black through there too.

The sentiment is printed from Word, and a fine line marker adds the final touches.

That's it from me so have an awesome day.  We're hoping to hit the beach at some doing laundry anyhow!
See you soon,

That kind of look you can only get from a teenager! This image really has its charm though, and I like the color scheme. The chevron paper looks fab too.
