…something that happens to be timeless and right

Sharing a card I made for a friend featuring a Saturated Canary image called Edgy Girl.

I have literally thousands of digis so searching through them always turns up unexpected and forgotten gems like this image.  She looks just like my friend and was perfect for her birthday card.  I lightened the lines in PhotoShop so I could colour her up no lines, which always makes the lips a real challenge.  I’ve ended up making her look rather melancholy but was afraid of ruining her by trying to fix the lips, which I did last.  But have to say still love how she looks coloured up.

The layout for my card follows the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I have made the hexagon a bit larger to fit my image and used smaller round elements, as the BoBunny pearls were the perfect denim colour to match.

I went with a denim background and cut my sentiment from more of the fab Tim Holtz denim because Edna is demanding some classic denim over at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  I haven’t played along over there in forever and the denim was fitting as my friend teamed a black dress with a pair of denim jeans (we’re talking about a mid-20s tom boy) the last time I saw her.  I just didn’t go snarky, mostly because I just couldn’t think of anything snarky, I blame the stupid hours I’ve been working lately for that!

As my image is a digi I am also linking up my card in the current challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond.
