Sweet N Sassy color challenge

Hi everyone! I want to thank all of you who have praying for me to get better. I am improving but not 100% yet. I actually ventured out of the house today and it was the first time in 7 days. I had to have blood taken and unfortunately had a bad reaction. This was the first time it happened to me. I got very dizzy and nauseous and nearly passed out. It then happened again later in the day when I went to the post office. So, my friend came and drove me home and I spent the rest of the day on the couch. I did have a card that I started for the sketch challenge but did not finish it. I made a card for yesterday's color challenge that I did not post on my blog yet so that is what I have to show you today.

I just love this little bird! It is one of 6 newly released stamp sets from sweet n sassy stamps on Nov.1. I colored my image with copic markers and shaded with twinkling H2Os. I then cut in out and raised it up with pop dots and raised the head higher than the body. I sponged the oval while it was still in the die.

Here are a couple close ups:

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Cozy Feathered Friends
CS- pacific point, certainly celery, white
ink- basic grey, memento black
accessories- copics (B21, B23, B24, G21, cool greys), twinkling H2Os, taffeta ribbon, celery brads, corner rounder punch, white gel pen, stickles, SU scallop punch, oval nesties, snowflakes cb folder, cb vintage corner dies

Blog candy update:

Sweet N Sassy- Michelle and Faith have 2 different sets to give away. Chris also has blog candy for you. Enter till Saturday Nov 15th.

High Hopes Hop-ending Thursday. Divas' blogs are listed on my sidebar so you need to find who has the candy first.

Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by today!
