Wild Thing!

I am so far behind on my posting. This winter I have struggled keeping up with all the things that I have going! But, at last I am posting this card. I will tell you that this card took me way out of my comfort zone. It was one of the first cards I colored after taking one lesson with Kit an Clowder Skin and Hair class. All of the practice I have been doing since is paying off as I can see a big difference in my coloring. But this was a free image and I must say that I did have fun with the colors. I kept the background paper muted as my colors on the image were a bit bold! It is hard to tell but IRL there is lots of sparkle to this card. I used a Spica pen and in the light (this picture was taken on our dark and dreary days) the card sparkles! I kept the embellishments simple as I wanted the image to be the focal point! Just a fun little 'practice' and hopefully a card that will brighten someone's day. I hope your day is filled with blessings!
My Song: Wild Thing (The Troggs) 
Wild thing, you make my heart sing
You make everything groovy, wild thing
Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on and hold me tight
I love you
