Fake-n-bake Elzy!


LOL!! Ok, so I'm playing around, making these cards, I figure out how I want to do them, get them colored and play some more with the colors. When I go to make some duplicate cards, instead of picking Raw Silk Copic marker for the skin, I colored them in with Sand!!! It's a much darker brown (not sure if you can tell from the photo). Which is fine for some images, but since she's blonde, it looks like she fake-n-bakes!!! Maybe I should add a hint of orange for the full effect!! I made 4 of these cards and only 1 has the Raw Silk for the skin. I didn't realize what I had done until after I colored them in and took a better look!! :D Oh well, we gotta love Fake-n-bake Elzy too!! :D

I used a bunch of punches on this card! Martha Stewart border punch, Marvy Mega Scallop, Marvy snowflake punch, SU double rectangle punch and EK Success Corner punch. All Stamps by Elzybells except for the Scallop Oval Frame which is A Muse (I had a tough time stamping that evenly.) Images colored in with Copics. Snowflake is punched from DCWV glitter mat stack, Cell phone bling sticker on snowflake, Stickles added to outfit, ribbon retired from SU.

Thanks for looking!

Who says all girls have to be pale skinned? I bought that same MS border punch with my Mike's 50% off coupon this weekend. Thanks for letting me see what I can expect!
