Lovely Lavenia...

Today I'm sharing Lavinia Portrait
drawn by Ms. Abigail Larson and sold in digital form at 

This month we are showcasing some of our favorite

I chose this one because it is so very versatile - not to mention gorgeous!

I chose to use a softer, feminine yellow & pink 
in contrast to the strength of the black.

District 31...just for FUN!

Today, my friends, I have for you an image created by 
District 31 inspired by The Hunger Games - 
which, by the way, I loved the books and I'm liking the movies as well, 
so it was a given that I purchase her!

I used my Silver Bullet Professional to do a Print & Cut 
and popped her onto some designer paper from the 6x6 pad
 Amy Tangerine by American Crafts.
I colored her with my Copics as follows:
Skin: E50, 000, 00, 53, 21, 93
Black Hair: C5, 7, 10 & 100
Green: G40, 24, 28
Blue: B01, 04, 06
The leaves were cut from the same green cardstock 
that is the base for the card and was also cut with my SBPro.
The flowers are from Michaels as well as the ribbons of stones aka bling!

She was so much fun to color!

Thanks for stopping by and spending a few minutes of your time with me today &
I hope you have a blessed and creative day.

Until later,
