Hi guys, it's Donna today showcasing the a gorgeous new image at The East Wind today. Here is Lucy Loo 'crown'. Besides being totally fabulous in her own right, in addition to the normal jpg, png, no back ground png and light lines for no lines coloring, this digi also comes with a BLACK background. I'm all over that! How dramatic, and no fussy cutting, eh? Well, while in my Printmaster Pro program I also did a bit of playing with other colors, turning the entire digi royal blue, teal, and deep red. Here's the result. How cool is that?
To start, I decided on the deep red background. Thought it would be fun to do something totally monochromatic. So here's my coloring. Believe it or not, I only used TWO colors of Copics. TWO! That's it!
E04 and R000 that's all it took, and here's the finished card. Awesome, eh? Imagine the possibilities. Unfortunately, because of my trip, I was unable to color more before I went, but I plan to make a whole set of these as well as coloring her up brightly using the fab black background. Love this new option for this image, don't you?
My DT sisters have their own renditions of Lucy Loo 'crown' that you can see on The East Wind FB page as well as The East Wind Group page where a new FB contest started while I was gone and the theme is AAARgh...Pirates. And stay tuned for our next Blog Challenge which starts Sept 1.

Donna Showcasing Lucy Loo 'Crown'
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut in 2008, that is. I've since expanded my horizons and found a new love in coloring both rubber and digi stamps with my Copics. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 43 (!) years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
