EMBOSS IT... and coloring

welcome i am happy you are here and we invite you to participate. ---all the details will be at the end of this post---

 this week's challenge is :
Create a project and include any type of embossing
Sponsor: Limited Runs Digital Stamps - 3 digis of winner's choice 

i chose the pretty june bug from our darling sponsor's shop

Be Unique
here hair is gray but it looks like purple and i wanted it to look like purple because... i would love to die my hair purple but if i do, my husband will have a heart attack, lol. i do not know why :D.
i used the spectrum noirs markers to color this girl. as you can see not much shading/blending again because i am getting a bit frustrated with it, hehe but i still have fun coloring. i will keep practicing as time permits but i am thinking i might have to invest in a few more copics: i just own two---hehe but  for now this is what we get, :D

if you look close you can see on the blue paper i subtle stamped some clouds. i loved how it turned out. another technique that i think it came out really nice was the honey comb embossing. and,  i love the digital  image. i see myself in it, , gray haired, and mesmerized with the lightning bugs, my bell buttons pants from back in the era.... and still amazed by nature...awww! how cool!

the sentimen couldn't be be any more fitting:
"Be Unique, Be Unforgettable, Be You"

well, no more to say but to  remind you we would love if you join us. the sponsor is giving away 3 digis and the winner has the right to pick which ones they like. yay!!!
