Simply Sassy High School Student.

I'm back with my sixth Simply Sassy card. You can now purchase these little beauties HERE. I've thoroughly enjoyed playing with all these images and I still can't decide which one is my favourite.

I've kept it very simple using MME So Sophie DP, two flowers and a few pearls. She coloured with distress inks. Do you like her tinted 'Reactolite Rapide' glasses? Very clever huh? Ha! I coloured her eyes perfectly, then I wanted to make the glasses glossy like real glasses. I tend to get in such a mess with Glossy accents and the like, so I used a clear Sakura glaze pen and added a few layers to get some depth.
All looked fine until it had completely dried when I realised the glaze pen had mixed with the DI's making the whites of her eyes very creamy coloured Grrrrrrrr!

My hubby is now back from his travels along with all his dirty clothes, thank you darling! He's had the most wonderful time away and will definitely go back to the Isle of Skye. I've seen some of his photos and I must say that the scenery is breathtaking.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xx

  4. Love the way your colouring of her folder picks up on the maroon paper - or is it the other way about & those socks are a delight with the striped papers. That reminds me of my reactolites - actually yours look very authentic & just the sort of thing Miss Nose-In-A-Book would wear.
    Take care with that washing....
    Much love

  9. She is beautifully colored, especially the hair, it looks great. I can't even tell the eyes got smeary from the pen, but I do hate when that happens! Wonderful card!

  14. Hi Elaine
    love your card, and I think the tinted reactolite rapide glasses just add charm to the image. Also love the papers.

    I'm glad that hubby has returned from his travels (lucky thing). I bet the Isle of Sky is fantastic at this time of year. I hope you are going to share some of his wonderful photo's with us.
