and the WINNER IS.........................................

Allison from Stampin' when I can! I wish that you all could have won. I used Random.Org which generated the number 7.

If you haven't visited Allison's Blog, you should seriously consider doing so. If you want the scoop on the latest tutorials, tips and give a ways, that is the place to go!!! So Congrats Allison. If you p.m. me your Address, I'll have a little package out to you by Friday!!!!

This is my Extremely Bright Hanna Card for Kaitlyn, a family friend who is celebrating her 12th Birthday on the 24th of December. I wanted to achieve a Cartoon Character look to my image, so I used my SU! Stamp n' write markers directly to watercolour paper. Why bother with Watercolour paper when just colouring you might ask??? Well I find if you work quickly when the markers are wet, you can get a great blend on the paper. In order to do this (see the lighter portions of colour on the ribbon>) I colour the lighter shade of colour onto my image and then quickly blend the darker colour into the lighter colour with loose fluid strokes, almost like painting, blending one colour into the other. I then outlined the image with black marker to emphasize the whole image. DP is from Crate Paper. I used SU Celery, Rose Red and Pumpkin Cardstock. Embellished with Primas, MM Flower Brads and some unknown ribbon from "M's"!

As you know, Hanna's perfect package is being released this Friday Night!!!! Hop on over to the Hanna Site to see what's new!!!!!!
