This month's $1 is Melissa's Balloon. She is such a cutie! I just love her expression! The Make it Crafty store is temporarily closed while Zoe adds some new features and images so I can't link up Melissa's Balloon for you, but I will come back and update the links as soon as the store re-opens. There was also a little "challenge" issued in the FB group to color this digi using the no lines/light lines technique. Of course, I had to give it a go. It would have downright rude of me not to! I also gave my Melissa curly hair for the hard part of this month's Make it Colourful Challenge #10. Phew! That was a lot to take on at once, at least for me!
Here is my card:
My card base and mats are SU Island Indigo and the patterned papers are from the October Afternoon Woodland Park 8x8 pad. I printed Melissa's Balloon on MiC Blending Card with very light lines using the washout effect in Word, then colored her with my Copics. As you can see, I definitely need a lot more practice with this technique! A simple olive satin bow was all I added to finish my card.
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by again! I'll pop around in a bit to visit a little until I can't sit any longer.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
