Get Well Soon!

Hi everyone!!  Well, I'm back with another of those adorable images from The Paper Nest Store  This time I'm using, "Bedtime Ellie" in my design.  I couldn't even begin to resist that rolled up hair! Hee

Of course I colored my Ellie with Copic markers.  I used my Blender Pen a lot on this image.  After coloring her robe, I dotted it with the Blender Pen which, as you may know, removes color.  It gave me just the texture I was hoping for on the robe.  You may also know there are several ways to achieve "texture" on a Copic colored image such as... putting Blender Solution onto a dish rag and pressing it to your colored area.  LOVE that look as well.

After I colored Ellie I then roughed up the edges for a bit of a distressed look and added some Tim Holtz Distress ink, "Vintage Photo" as well.

My DP is from the Prima "Romance Novel" pack and the coordinating flowers.  LOVE that paper pack!!!  I added a bit of lace along the edge of my image and a simple cameo stick pin which I THINK might be from Websters Pages.

I really like how this turned out.  A bit muted but still with some beautiful color.  Oh yes... not only did I "dot" with my Blender Pen... I also dotted the bear with different Copic colors to get texture on him as well.  ;-)

The Paper Nest images are so much fun and it seems she adds tons and tons more every week!!  Stop on over and check out all the other fabulous Ellie stamps, as well as some adorable Avery, Emma and Owen stamps too.

It's Friday!!!  Hope you can go out and enjoy the weather and that wherever you are, if you have the rain and thunderstorms you stay safe!! Thanks for stopping by, as always.  *HUGS*
