Trigger Tuesday / Taylored Expression

Hello everyone.  I have been just a crackin' at the cards this weekend.  I got 5 cards made Saturday.  Woohoo!
I went back and touched up this image after I printed it.  I guess since it has probably been copied over a few times on the internet..it's color was very washed out.  I used my Copics and touched up her face with Pale Fruit Pink, her bonnett and dress shading with Neutral Grey, and the flowers with Light Orange, and yellow.  I also used Yellow Y06 to touch up her hair.  I should have taken pics before I touched it up so you could see the difference.  It was night and the light wasn't good.


I hadn't played along with fellow Iowan Taylored Expressions challenge in quite a while.  I've also never done a Trigger Tuesday.  So what better way than to do them together.  Right?  I loved the sketch and it fit perfectly with the image I got from Heartwarming Vintage blog.  This just came together perfectly.  I used all different Basic Grey papers...all different color greens.  Love it!



Supplies:
Cardstock: American Crafts
DP:  Basic Grey
Button: Basic Grey
Floss: Prism
Lace: Fabric store/by the yard

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Heather

Love the greens and vintage image. The sprucing up really went well, 'cause I can't see it. Looks like a very good picture, a keeper. I recognise the BG Sultry paper, but don't know the other green papers from BG. Really like it though. Happy Mothers' Day to you! (in UK at least)
