Just So Cool!


It is launch time at All Dressed Up and we have four fantastic images for you for this months launch.  For my card, I've used Just So Cool and I think this image is perfect for a young girl or a special little gal I know who is five and going on twenty-five!

In Word, I flipped/mirrored the image (aren't digis great?), added the sentiment and then drew the lines around the border.  After I coloured her with Copics, I sprinkled a little Frantage and done!
I've noticed a lot of people giving an angled photo view and I quite like the look of it so thought I would give it a it a go.
 And finally, a close up:

Another fabulous card, Marilyn! This is such a great use of white space with this fun image. I never think to mirror the digi - great idea! The combination of fonts in the sentiment is awesome! I love the idea that you know a five year old - going on 25! Great image and fun release. So glad you shared your card and your mad-coloring skills with us for the anything goes challenge at Color Me Creative, Friend! Hugs, Cathy xx
