Happy New Year - Should auld acquintance be forgot....

Hi there,

First of all I want to wish all my readers a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 – hope that wasn’t too loud, if you’re still hung over from last night LOL. 

I'm happy to see that my group of readers/followers is slowly increasing month by month.

Today there’s a new challenge starting on the WWODT challenge blog. The theme is “Anything goes” and for my project I’ve used Sherri Ann Baldy IMG521 "Best besties forever". You can find it by clicking the image title. 

Very appropriate here around New Year where we think of friends near and far. This digi stamp is SO cute and that is probably how many people wished each other a Happy New Year last night – with a big hug. 

I had so much fun coloring this image - I know, I know, I say that every time I post a project in here, but I really am having much fun colouring and putting things together, so please, bear with me. 

This is one of the few times I’ve used very alternative hair colours, but I think it came out very nicely.  I used the following Copic markers for the project:

Girl with green hair:
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Hair: YG63, YG03 and YG11
Eyes: E18, E15 and YR23
Trousers: E18, E15, E11, E21 and R27 for the heart
Blouse and hairband: YR18, YR14 and Y17
Flowers: Y17, R27 and R32 Leaves: YG63
Boots: C7, C5, C3. C2 and C0

Girl with purple hair:
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Hair: BV13, V04 and BV31
Blouse: E59, E27 and E32
Trousers: B99, B97, B95 and B91 Patch and dots: R27
Boots: C7, C5, C3. C2 and C0

I wanted to keep this project clean and simple because it’s very busy colour wise, so the only embellishments I’ve used are gems in green and purple, so they match the hair colours.

The “Best Friend” sentiment is a rub on I found in a small book with rub ons in a craft store.

I hope you like my card. Feel free to leave a message to let me know. Please join my blog if you would like to see my projects on a regular basis.

Be Happy Crafting!
