Hip Hip Hooray!




Hello Everyone!
I would like to share another ISS with you! So without any further "ado" here is Yuki! I have had my eyes on Yuki for sometime now and was thrilled to receive her in my DT packet. Yuki is quite the flirt isn't she...just look at her... winking her eye!

To set the tone of my card, I decided to use DCWV glitter paper and picked up the main colors off the paper for Yuki's outfit. I love the sparkle of this design paper.....so yummy!




The card stocks are SU's Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue and PTI's Cream. I used my Copic Markers to color in my image and was very happy with the cream color card stock. To give her a bit of depth, I airbrushed the color B00 with my airbrush system. The results from using the airbrush system are great but the cans of compressed air can be expensive. So... if you are in the market to buy the starter system, it's a great accessory but the compressed air doesn't last a long time.



To accent Yuki's hair, I lightly dribbled a bit of white acrylic paint with a fine brush. To give her eye more sparkle, I lightly dabbed on some liquid glass.

My card is embellished with flowers, ribbon, pearls and a button. The sentiment is from SU and I used my Nesties to mat my image and the sentiment.




Enjoy your Good Friday and thank you all so much for stopping by! We will leave for our vacation in the morning and if all goes well, I think I have about three pre-scheduled post for next week. Take care and I'll catch up with all of your blogs when I return home!

Hugs
Risa
