Guest Designer for Cute As A Button on Facebook

Hi All! Welcome to my blog! Thank you so much for making time to visit me.

As I have mentioned, I love to craft. I have always been drawn to everything artistic. I am not sure what it is bu my eyes always gravitate towards it.

I was very glad that I was given the opportunity to be able to work with Cute As A Button images. All of Francesca's artworks are quite lovely! She is a very talented lady! :)

When I saw Cute As A Button's image called "Luck of the Irish"., I immediately fell in love with it. The image reminded me of my niece, Lauren. She is the cutest little thing with flaming red hair and bright blue eyes!

I just had to color her up! Also, Lauren resembles Merida from Disney's "Brave"--oh what fun!! My first card is the blue one of Lauren, aka Merida style. I gave her pale skin and a bright blue dress to bring out her hair. Her hair was the most fun to color! It was just so wild! It matches her personality!

My second card also featured Cute As A Button's image called "Luck of the Irish". This time, I tamed her down a bit and gave her a light bronzed color hair. She is very girly pink on this card with a 'Best Wishes" sentiment. This card is meant for as a birthday or an any occasion card.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you come back again to check in for inspiration.

The card style is a sliding panel peek-a-boo card. Here is a close up for Hopscotch.

My Coloring Process

I love to color. Even as a child, I am most happy when left alone to color. Just leave me alone with a box of crayons and you will never hear a peep out of me.

When I color, I just go with whatever I feel in the mood for. One day pink, next day blue....there is no rhyme or reason. Sometimes those color moods can last for days or weeks and other times, on a whim...again no rhyme or reason.

Sometimes the image will tell me what color they should be. For example, like this beckons to be colored green.

I wanted the image to look like night time but hated the dark colors...

I love this image and especially love coloring her in Twinkling H2Os.  Here are a few more pictures of what it look like:

It almost made it look like he lamp was giving off a glow.

Here is the final colored version:

Update on my last coloring of the Water Fairy

Just wanted to post a pic of what became of my coloring of the water fairy. She was printed on a pretty large piece of paper, so it was hard to turn it into a card. I ended up stitching around the edges and mounting the image in layers instead.

She is really sparkly in real life.

A Bookmark for my book worm

Hi All,
 My daughter loves to read so she asked me to make her a book mark of the water fairy from "Cute As A Button". I made her 2 book marks. She specifically asked for a blue one...

I was playing around with the pinks and got too carried away with the color.
