MMSC#91 Olivia and John

Look who came to visit me this week - I think it is Olivia and John! Well, ok, John did have black hair and this dude got brown, but they still look like they came right out of the Grease movie.
As always it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.
 Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

The image is from Paper Pretties and is called Dreamboat.

Pink is not a color I use a lot, but this time it was actually quite fun to go pink. 
I have colored the pretty couple with my new Derwent Inktense colorpencils. They sure are InkTense! I will need some time to get used to that. I am not very good at coloring to begin with, so images like this always scares me a lot. I did the best I could.
On John's jacket I did the outline with a black ballpoint pen to give it an illusion of beeing made of leather. Then I added some glitterglue to the girls dress. I stamped the image twice and colored one in black for shadow. Along the outline of the shadow I have added some black stickles. It does not show in the picture, but gives a cool effect real life.
Then I put the colored image on foamdots and put it a little bit off centre from the black shadow.

Just a little silver flower. I really love these metal flowers. The black thing is something I have taken from an old necklace that I have picked apart.

No one can rock without a guitar! I think this must be a Gibson ;o)

 Thanks for stopping by! Now run over to the Midnight Madness blog and play with us!
