Midnight Madness

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday! I'm going to do my best to post a card every day this week. I can't guarantee it, but I'm going to try! I'm working on Valentine's Day cards now, so that is primarily what you will be seeing this week.

Today I used a sketch from the Midnight Madness challenge. There were a lot more paper layers on the sketch than what I used, but my image was too large to create more layers. I'm still happy with the way it turned out.

I colored the image with copics. I used the clear spica on her wings & the polka dots on her belt & headband (hard to see in the photo, but it gives it a pretty sparkle). I've used this image before & made it very soft and pale colors - it was fun trying it out using much more bold and bright colors. I was really happy with the way it turned out - especially her hair.

Cardstock is from the stash (various kinds) and the PP is Basic Grey (you will notice it's the same from yesterday). Ribbon is from my stash and a Prima flower on the front. I didn't use a sentiment on this card but I'm sure I will put something on the inside of the card.

Hope you enjoy today's creation.
