Party Time Lucy


Another CC Designs cutie to show off today... this is Party Time Lucy and she's available now at All That Scraps.  You can check out some more inspiration using the new digistamps (most are available as rubber too) at the All That Scraps Blog... my teamies have been very busy too :-)
I've used the Sketch and Stash sketch this time, you know how much I love a good sketch :-)  I've used a doily as the circular element, I inked the edges to tone it in a bit better with the Inque Boutique (Cabana collection) papers.  Paper Play Challenges has Lovely Lace as its challenge, I'm hoping my lacy doily gets me in there.
I used both Prismacolor pencils and Copics to colour the image.  The skin and hair are coloured with Copics and the rest is coloured with Prismacolors, I feel I'm improving with my pencil colouring - which was my "challenge to self" so I'm happy!
There's glossy accents on her hair bobbles and shoes... you gotta have patent shoes when you're off to a party!!  Papertake Weekly has Happy Highlights as its theme so I'm in there.  Crazy 4 Challenges has Layer It On, plenty of layers here (easy peasy, I LOVE my layers!) so I'm entering there too.
I made a pin to go in the floral arrangement (bit of a grand name for a couple of flowers, I admit), I used a crystal bead and pearls from my stash, I coloured one of them with a Copic to get the right shade of pink. 
The flowers are from a spray I got in a discount store, inked up for depth of colour the swirls were cut with a Marianne D die.  The Paper Shelter has Swirls and Pearls and Crafty Cardmakers has "Beads" for their challenge themes, so I'm in there.  Paper Crafting Journey has Floral and Moving Along With The Times has Blooming Marvellous, there's flowers on my paper as well as my "glue-ons", so I'm in there too.  Totally Papercrafts has Pearls and Lace as its theme, as long as my lace doily counts, I'm in there as well!
I finished the front of the card off with a few bits of Card Candi, a sticker sentiment on an offcut of card and heart brads on the corners of the image panel; Allsorts Challenges wants us to use one or more hearts, they're little but they're there, I'm in.
The inside of the card is finished with paper from the front, the edge of the pink card is punched with Martha Stewarts Modern Garland edger punch.  I added a couple more of the Marianne D swirls and added a Card Candi centre to one of the flowers of the paper.  My Time to Craft has use your Favourite Embellishment as its theme; I'm not sure what my favourite embellishment is, but most of the things I love to use are on here, including  nice paper!!
Simon Says Challenge and Bizzy Becs both have Anything Goes challenges so I'm entering there too.
Well that's about it for "Party Time Lucy" and me.  I'm off now to make a GDT card for a challenge next week which has a theme I would normally avoid like the plague, so the challenge is on me, as they say :-)  I'll be back in a day or so; February is very celebration-heavy for me, so lots of cards... on the cards!! Oh, very punny Donna, groan!  Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
