Gracias!

Hola amigos!  Thanks to Samantha for covering for me last week!  I got stuck at work when one of my employees called in, so Sam came to my rescue!  And with a super fabulous and *Gorjuss* creation, no less!
This is Rosa from Mexico.  She is one of the sweet little characters from around the world made by Your Next Stamp.  I used E11, E13 and E15 to make her skin a little more ethnic.  Her dress is colored with R24,R27, R29 and R59...I'll let you in on a little secret!  I made a rather large boo-boo on the bottom of her dress!  Try as I may to push that color back in with the colorless blender, it just kept bleeding out.  I covered it up with a white gel pen!  Go ahead, click on the pic and make it bigger so you can see where...I'll wait here...........   Not too shabby, eh?  It's not the best cover up, but it beats starting all over!
The ground is something new!  I wanted to create a shadow of her, so I shaded with E37, E33 and E31.  It looked a little flat, so I added dimension with some dots of each of the colors.  Kind of fun, don't you think?  
The cactus image is a bonus that you get with Rosa.  The sentiment is from my stash.  I added just a bit more interest to this easy to mail card by stamping the cactus in VersaMark around the border of the card base.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  :o) lyss
