Elisabeth Bell BLOG HOP

Hiya Peeps!

Welcome to our Blog Hop.  We are celebrating the new release of Curly Locks Kiki!  Isn't she just absolutely adorable!  Who wouldn't want to head on over to Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection and get her immediately!?
Here is the image:

I had super fun coloring her!  When I looked at this image, I immediately got a Vintage idea for a card.  I do admit that patience was a must with this one.  I used Crackle Accents on the picture, and had to wait for ages for it to dry completely!  It wasn't really that long, but it felt like it.  It took forever to cover the whole image.  I think my Accents might have been exposed to air too long, 'cause it's really thick and I struggled to spread it evenly.  After a while I just squeezed out a big lot and spread it with a paint brush!  Love the effect, not trying it again soon.

If you hoped on over from Penni's Blog, you're in the right place!
