Hello friends and followers - so nice of you to stop by to visit.
I have a card to share with you on which I tried something new.
First, here's the card and then I'll tell you what I tried for the first time :o)
Digital image by Lacy Sunshine: Lil Frolic Sitting Pretty
So....what did I try that's different?
I colored her hair a bright, non-typical color.
I wanted to do a monochromatic purple theme and keep everything else neutral.
So I stepped out of my comfort zone and went for the purple hair - and I LOVE it!!
Probably not as exciting for you as it is for me, but thanks for sharing it with me!
I'm also happy because I managed to use up several items from my stash
(LOVE tickets, designer paper, purple flower shaped brads & the teeny paper daisy).
I added some rich razzleberry ink to the flowers with a sponge dauber,
I like the depth and interest it gave them.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Always Playing with Paper - The Challenge #6 (a great sketch!)
The Card Concept -Challenge #9 Monochromatic Purple
and create in one of the style's of the design team.
I tried a freestyle collage style this time (hope I succeeded).

As a side note - a couple of months ago I found the Lacy Sunshine facebook group
and have been participating in Heather's special challenges.
Heather gives the group members a choice of two images for each challenge
and offers us the opportunity to get one of them free to use.
The image I used for the current challenge is called Lil Frolic Sitting Pretty.
I've had a lot of fun being part of this group and the challenges.
