Happiness Card

Happy Wednesday! Do you see the image? Well, I had colored the Stampin Up image about 6 months ago and recently found it after going through my stamped images. Sometimes when I watch TV with my family, I'll color images just to keep myself awake. Watching TV has a way of lulling me to sleep so I'll color images. Unfortunately, a lot of times I don't end up using the images. Not sure why. . .it's usually because I don't like how I colored the image. Many times, I'll color my images in dim lighting while watching television and well, when I turn on the light to look at the image, I end up not liking something about it.

I had colored the image using my Copic Markers and smudged the background with Pebbles, Inc. pastels which have a shimmery effect to the color. I then added a bit of Stickles to parts of the image. Do you see the metal embellishment? Well, it's covering a smudge. LOL! When I was rubbing distressing ink at the edge of the card stock, I accidentally smudged a bit of ink to the white part of the card stock. It ended up working out with the embellishment.

Anyway. . .what are your plans today? I'm hoping to work on a few more cards today. I have another SU image similar to the one on this card so today is a good day to create a card for it. I can't remember the name of SU set for this image. I've put the stamp set away and not sure where it is right now. Anyone know the set name?

Hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday!
