Cutie Pie

Hello my sweet blog friends.  Are you having a good weekend so far?  I have a card to share with you that I created for the newest colors at CR84FN.  For the next 2 weeks we are using Lavender, Peach, and a Neutral.

I am going to let you in on a little secret.  When I originally colored this cutie I had used a color on her cheeks that turned out a little too purple.  It looked like someone had punched her in the cheeks and they bruised.  It killed me to put that on my blog so I went back and cut out just around her head and recolored it just the way I had intended it to be then glued it on.  Ha!  I don't think you can tell from straight on but you can in the photo below that is taken at an angel.  I was not about to throw away all that hard work or tear off the whole image either.  So this was my bad aid for my boo boo.  What do you think?


I love these pretty colors.  My only gripe...there is little to no purple patterned paper.  WHY?  I love purple and it is never in any of the paper packs.  My Minds Eye needs a whole pack of purple papers and I would be one happy girl.


I played along at MFT using their Wednesday Sketch.

Supplies:
Cardstock: MFT/Natural, Grapesicle
Patterned Papers: MME
Stamps: MFT/ Pure innocence: Picture Purfect
Dies: MFT Die-namics/ Hibiscus, Mini Tabs foursome, Double Scallop Border

Thanks so much for looking,
Heather

I think your boo boo ended up being even better! Now her cute little face has some real life dimension. That extra layer added shading under her chin and it looks more life like. I love it!

I love all the stitching on your card and the way the zig-zag underlines the sentiment! The layers and sweet image. Just fab! You would never have know about the face of your cutie - she looks super!

Heather, your story was just FUNNY about her bruised cheeks! I kinda like that her head is pieced! And your stitching is just DIVINE! FAB card!

Awww...poor baby had to have her head chopped off???
Hee, hee sounds like something I would do! I would never have known! I think she is precious! Gives her some sassiness with that tilt to her chin! Love it!

lynn said...

Geri said...

She turned out adorable...new head and all!! And I agree about the purple!! Whenever I run across a piece or two, I grab them up...they ARE hard to find!! Really sweet, Heather!!

Pauline said...

I love purple too! I love the soft pastel shades in your papers here, and the colouring on the PI girl is wonderful, the quick fix is brilliant, it adds a nice bit of dimension as her head pops out of the frame! Such a gorgeous design!

Denise Marzec said...

Lisa said...

Pure sweetness Heather! And way to recover from the mishap!!

Jill Norwood said...

Heather - your story of her bruised cheeks made me smile!
I love that you were able to salvage her sweet face by making another! I have a love/hate relationship with coloring images because I often will ruin the image after spending lots of time on it! Some I can salvage and some I cannot. Needless to say I think you did a fantastic job!!!
Love your pretty card!

Stephanie Kraft said...

This is just darling, Heather! Love the pops of lavender! Great job on the band-aid - she wouldn't be Picture Perfect with a bruise on her face! LOL!

Betty Wright said...

Just picture perfect for sure, Heather! Love these soft hues and the fabulous details. Is that MFT or PTI button? I need to get some MFT buttons and I am wondering.....lol!

Cheryl said...

I actually like the way you remedied the cheek problem--it gives the image a little more dimension. The card is so cute, and I love the bit of zig zag holding the tag on.

Maria said...

Sweet adorable image colored in lovely color! Excellent flub remedied to perfection! She really is a darling! Take care, hugs!
