Peace on Earth and American Idol results


I've been using Copics for so long that I decided to revisit my Prisma pencils. This adorable High Hopes Lion and Lamb was done with Prisma's and odorless mineral spirits on PTI kraft paper. I love how the pencils look on kraft paper and they are a bit richer irl. I went over the pencil with Shimmerz in various colors to compliment the lions mane, his body, and the lambs wool, but it was almost impossible to photograph due to the glare from the sparkle. I found the patterned paper in my stash and I don't know whose it is, but the design looked just like lions tufted tail. I've been lovin' all the big juicy bows I've been seeing so much of so I had to try one myself. The sentiment is from Anna Wight's North Pole Post from Whipper Snapper. Not only for Christmas it is perfect for Easter too. Anytime really, I mean it's Peach on Earth man! I added some Prima's, which reflect the color of their cheeks, and some gems. The chocolate cardstock is also from PTI but the ribbon which is a perfect match is from my stash.
So is anyone watching American Idol? How happy are you that Tatiana Del Toro is NOT in the top 12? I am so relieved...I never saw such an emotional mess of a drama queen in my life! Ah, I can sleep now...

Cute card, Danielle!

Yes, I am happy to see Tatiana go! Wow, I think they must have given her Valium last night, though! Yes, definitely glad to see the hysterical drama queen hit the road!

LOVE the card! =) Great layout, and love that you used the Peace on Earth sentiment! Great idea!!

As for AI, it's the most favorite show here, so YES we're watching! While she was hysterical to watch (in all her hysteria), I feel good for the other contestants that they don't have to deal with her drama any longer! Talk about going a little overboard, eh? She's a pro at it! :)

I didn't want her in but the drama would have been interesting. I thought she was going to pass out last night.

This is so adorable, Danielle! Your coloring is brilliant...love the blue background! Love the big bow too! I'm thrilled that Danny and Alexis made it through! And SO GLAD that Miss Emotional did not!!

OMG--- I just hope Tatiana doesn't squeeze back in with the "last chance" round where they pick people to come back-- I could see them bringing her back just for the controversy!! She is completely annoying!! (Love the prisma coloring by the way-- I haven't used a non-copic for a lONG time!) :)

SO CUTE! The colours are just PERFECT Danielle!

Tammi said...

Adorable, pretty frame around the image. And yes, glad she's gone, that girl has issues! I can just see them bringing her back for the wild card to torture us all!

Wow, another gorgeous creation!~ I so love what you did with this stamp, and I love the big bow, the perfect DP, and it looks so gorgeous with that nestie. Beautiful! And yes, I am so relieved re. the top twelve so far. I think if she had got in over Danny Gokey, I seriously would have dropped to my knees and cried. ha ha ha
