Sweet Pea Sketch With CR84FN Colors

Well...IRL the colors are teal, green and yellow, like in the CR84FN challenge, but no matter where I took the picture of this card, it looks more blue.  I promise, it's teal!  I had a hard time coloring this one.  I had bought some more expensive, supposedly better quality watercolor paper for using Distress Inks.  I've had a hard time with this paper with getting the Distress Inks to blend properly, or even just lay down properly, so I'm going to go back to my cheapy watercolor paper that I really liked.  Live and learn.  This cute lady is called "Telsa" from Sweet Pea Stamps.  After the Distress Inks dried, I had to even out some places on this with Prismacolors and then blend.  I glued on the tiny, fine chain in the areas on the image where she had chains, so that adds some glitz, along with Stickles on her hat.  The DP is Cafe Mediterranean from DCWV; this particular page had the perfect colors for the CR84FN color scheme.  I added the hand-cut "banner" to the side (like I did on the last card); think it looks really cute!
