I am so pining for spring! Here on LI, it’s actually around 50 degrees, so I am thrilled and itching to go outside and play in the sunshine! So, it’s the perfect day to share my latest card for you! It features Springtime Morgan, from my fang-tastic friend Beth’s stamp collection: Stamp Insanity! You can purchase all of her amazing images over at Tonya’s shop: Stamp Happens. She’s so cheery! I went a little nutty with the flowers… something I don’t usually use, but I think they all work harmoniously here. I keep looking at the card, wondering if it needs anything else… but I’m trying to channel my inner Tim Gunn and know when to stop (I know there’s an appropriate quote that works here…but damned if I remember it right now!). Here’s a closeup of my coloring. I used my beloved Spectracolor Pencils. I went with a different approach to Morgan here. Originally I was going to make her hair brown, but I really wanted her to pop! So I decided to try her as a red head. I used a lot of different shades in her hair, I hope you can see them all! Click on a photo to see it bigger! This is also not a color pallet I usually work with. I don’t normally do the citrus thing. I am more into the cool jewel tones. But it was fun to do something different! And, since Morgan is a digi, I can not only color her in a ton of different ways, but resize her too! For a techno-phobe like myself, it’s really easy to do. And I love the versatility! Hope the weather is fabulous by you. If it is, put down the Copics and take a romp in the park! Peace, Love, and Twilight!

Beautiful! I so like your style. Nice blog and thanks so much for sharing.
This is really pretty! Love the coloring and the paper choice. It is in the 50s here in KS, so I understand the springy thoughts. I get to wear flats with no socks today…yes that makes my day!
Super cute, Alison. I love the way you colored her. Have a great weekend.
