A Smokin' Hot Thank You

Hi there. If you follow me on Facebook, then you know that since the first of the year I've been taking classes at The Bar Method. (Everyone thinks that sounds like a fun fitness class, but I assure you, it's not that kind of bar) It's actually this fantastic ballet based fitness class that sculpts and tones and elongates. It's been kind of incredible for me. I've lost 3 sizes so far, and I've only been at it since January.

So, I decided that the awesome instructors there needed a Thank You card since for the first time in several years, I didn't feel like crying when shopping for a bikini. I used Saturated Canary's Smokin' Hot for this one. She was super fun to color.

Skin: E00, E01, E11, E04, R20 & E97
Hair: Y21, YR12, YR14, E15 & E 18
Swimsuit: B93, B95, B99

The Mother of all cards

I actually made this one a few weeks ago, but only just decided to post it up here. There are a few techniques I've been shying away from, and I finally broke down and conquered one of them.

Coloring in Black & White.

For my own inner challenge, I chose Umbrella Gwen from Some Odd Girl.

She seemed rather appropriate to color using only grey Copics. I used the Warm Grays, because that's the tone that matched my paper scheme best. and I used Y08, Y18 & Y19 for the pop of color for her umbrella.

Did I mention I'd just recently watched the season finale of How I Met Your Mother? *Giggles* I love that show and getting to finally catch a glimpse of the Mother we'd been waiting like a bajillion years to meet was my small inspiration for this card.
