She Sells Sea Shells....

Okay, what I really meant to say was Sue Ling Sue She StretchNBubbles.... not a tongue twister, but the image that I used to create this card for you...

Ingredients: Cardstock - Rosies; Paper - HOTP; Markers - Marvy Le Plume; Stardust Pens, Glaze Pens - Sakura; Pearls, Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Ribbon scrap. 

 I created a  3D Sue Ling by printing the image twice, making a separate hair section, and colouring the image from there. I used marker for her face, Stardust pens for her dress, glaze pens for her flowers and her hair.  I left the red dress a little scratchy, becase it looks like taffeta in real life!  I coloured the hair flower on the back image, and coloured her hair on the separate piece - before attaching it, I wrapped a twisted ribbon scrap at the top. I also added pearls for earrings.

The card itself is simple matting.  I did use stardust pen to colour the red berries on the paper - which was only black and white...  Sue Ling is but one of an amazing family of SuShe images at SNB ... follow this link to see them all!

I've entered Sue Ling in the Anything Goes challenges at Fab N Funky, and at Kaboodle Doodles #43. Thanks for peepin'!
