Fancy Dress, Crafty Sentiments

So we have some great challenges beginning today.  Creative Fingers Challenge Blog is sponsored by Crafty Sentiments this week and the theme is as always Anything Goes but the team had the theme of Fall. The theme for the Colouring Crazy Challenge by Graph'it Markers is Autumn Colors.

I have made my autumn/fall card with a cute little girlie from Crafty Sentiments called Fancy Dress.  My sentiment is from Polkadoodles, the Rose Budd Collection.  I decided to try a new hair color combo for this project.  I wanted a "carrot top" color to go with her freckles. Here are some more views of the card..

My papers are new- ssshh don't tell the hubby, he would freak out!- they are from DCWV, the Spiced Cider stack.  Aren't they just fabulous?! Had to have them!  The brads I picked up at Michaels at the same time, pearls just from my stash.   

Here is my tip for this card... To make banners it is soooo much easier if you have a square punch, which I don't but will now be purchasing one for sure.  Here is a closer look at my stamps and coloring...

Fancy Dress by Crafty Sentiments

I colored her with my Graph'It Markers.  To get the hair strands I discovered it works better if you let your ink dry a little bit before adding them.  These markers blend so beautifully that they will blend out if the ink is too wet. Here are my color combinations used:
skin: 4120, 4125, 4155, 4135
hair: 2105, 2110, 2120, 2130, 3130
red: 5220, 5240, 5270, 5280
brown: 3210, 3245, 3250, 3280, 3290
