Featured Artist with a Challenge Card



The other night Shelby, (my granddaughter,) asked if she could color an image I was working on for a challenge, and since I had printed out more than one image I gave her one to color. She used mine as a guide, along with my COPICS, yes, my Copic markers, and did an amazing job coloring her image. In fact it's brighter than mine. I told her I thought I liked hers better and she said, "it's okay Grandma, I like yours too." Then, she proceeded to cut at least half of it out herself and then tell me what color CS she wanted to use and even cut the ribbon she wanted on her card. I'm blown away! I might as well turn my blog over to her.....she's smart enough to operate the computer and in no time she'd probably be leaving comments on all of your blogs. :) I am so proud of her artistry. I walked out of the room and in a little while she called me back to see her finished product. She even added her own shadows and highlighting - with my COPICS! Anyway, the challenge can be found on the Victoria Case Challenge Blog here, and the challenge is chocolate, ivory, and violet. Shelby had to leave before we actually assembled her card, although this is the way she layered it. I finished it so that I could post it to the challenge. I love Victoria Case designs - they're so much fun to color and to look at. She had a bunch of new images since the last time I checked, and that wasn't all that long ago. Well, I'd better end this. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your encouraging comments. My wonderful SIL was the only family member that left a comment the last time I presented Shelby's work, so KUDOS to you Richard! I'll have to find some blog candy for you. :) BTW, here is a pic of my wonderful little guest artist. Grandma's just a wee bit proud.

Very beautiful job on both cards (even though I got to see them both before now!) Maybe we could call her blog "Shelby's Shelf"....okay, maybe not. Just a suggestion. Keep stamping, KrB, Boo, Richard and I miss you very much!
