I didn't think it was possible...

Today I have a very CAS card design for your viewing pleasure.
These sweeties are a new image from Aurora Wings called,

I love color, so it was kind of hard for me to choose just one, 
or even a couple of favorites for this elf and her kitty. 
I didn't think it was possible, but I found that after I had chosen
to use most of my favorite colors, I was unable to find any papers
to go along with the colored image. 
I had colored myself into a corner with this one. 
After pushing papers around for more hours than I care to admit to,
I just went with a very CAS layout with a simple sentiment stamped
directly onto the card.
I'm sure it may have been easier had I just went with a normal flesh tone
for the elf, but the fantasy in me always wants to color fae in fantastical
tones. I mean, why not? How often do you get to color someone with blue green
or purple skin? I love how she turned out, and probably would choose
all the same shades if I colored her over again. 
And I did consider it for a moment...

This card is for the new challenge at Aurora Wings challenge blog
where the theme is Lucky Color(s).

    Hello Glo!

    Wow, this coloring turned out so great! LOVE that strong colors!

    Huge Hugz, Lorraine xx

  4. This is simply beautiful, and the CAS design really makes the image look even better, as there's nothing to detract from it. I think you made the right decision to leave it simple outside of the image. Gorgeous card!

  5. I thought I'd already commented on this beauty. (or do you do comment moderation and I just forgot?) Having a bit of a senior moment but I really, really, REALLY love the gorgeous colors you used so it bears repeating. Nothing else needed. Gorgeous work. xxD

  6. Wowzers girlfriend!! I love your coloring, You so totally rock!!

  7. It's not really CAS when you have coloured it. Absolutely gorgeous. x

  8. I've always LOVED your unique and beautiful coloring, Glo! Most people would be afraid to try anything other than the 'usual' skin tone, but you give my Sprites and Elves the genuine fantasy world treatment! Love that about you!! ^_^ I think the CAS design works really well here with the colored image. All the more striking by giving your coloring the undivided attention, which it deserves. ;) Thank you so much for the gorgeous inspiration for the new challenge at Aurora Wings!
