Mama Said Knock You Out...

Bombshell Blog Hop...My first one in fact. I wanted to make something different from my normal coloring so I tried coloring Butterfly Queen in just black and grey tones to look like an old photo... she was screaming out for some red lips, which lead to my color choice for the card. Honestly, red and black area an easy choice for me. It's one of my favorite color combinations.
I'm not sure what the brand the DP's are. The sentiment is from the Greeting Farm. Colored with Copics: N9, N7, N5, N3, N1 and R27.
I am really hoping to get some coloring and crafting done with in the next few days. I've got a lot going on with immigration and all that... all is fine just paper work and $$$. If I'm MIA for a bit thats why. Home, work and forms upon forms... :)

I hope I didn't forget anything.

It's incredible what you can accomplish when you start to get organized. Moving my desk away from the television didn't hurt either.

I plan to blog more often so I hope you'll follow along with me and my journey. Thank you so much for stopping by. Be sure to let me know you were here!
