Meet Pierette!

I think I have a touch of the flu. And considering I had both flu shots, that kinda stinks! Luckily, I had a project I was saving for an occasion when I didn’t have time to create something. Meet Pierette!

Pierettedetail

How cool is she?!?! She is part of the newest release from StampInsanity, Les Coquettes collection. I loved her the moment I saw her. Her hair is sick, and her name and style made me instantly think of Pauly Perette from NICS (LOVE her!!!). So here is a little ode to Abby!

I colored her in with watercolor markers from EK Success and my Spectracolor colored pencils. And I added a touch of glitter with my Sakura Stardust pen on her eyes and heart, plus American Crafts Glitter Pen on her fab dress.

The color is s abit off on this pic… there ws a bit of a glare. But I wanted to use this photo so that you can see that I used that amazing mirror finish paper that I had used on a Greeting Farm card once before. See my reflection???

The sentiment is also from the Les Coquettes collection. You can only purchase it at Tonya’s Stamp Happens Shop! I really love how she came out. And I know that there is no way I could make anything like it right now with the way I’m feeling. So glad I had a back up card!

By the way, April 5th marks the very first challenge for the new Friends Having Fun blog! And yours truly will be hosting that very first challenge! Wait! It gets better! To celebrate the grand opening of FHF and to kick off our challenges…we’ll be giving away 3 spectacular digi images from the super fab StampInsanity Stamps! To win, you must be signed up as one of our Google Connect Friends. The winner will be randomly drawn on Tuesday, April 6, 2010.

Are you in??? Until tomorrow…when I have another creation for StampInsanity! Have an inspiring day!!!
