You’re a Firework

Ever heard the Firework song by Katy Perry? Well, ever since this came out I have been thinking of a creation. I have been down for a week with a pinched nerve (I think) in my back and causing my left arm to be numb so what I started over a week ago too me until this morning to finish, been working on it here and there when I had a break from the pain. Anyhow, that’s not what this post is about so let me get on with it Smile.

My creation is fashioned after Katy’s song. If you have seen the video and listened to the words of this song it is about being someone no matter where you are right now. Here is my creation.

002 (Small)

I didn’t make a card this time but a great big firecracker. I think this turned out very cute and I am pleased with it. So, for my ingredients:

003 (Small)

Here is a close up of Tilda. I colored her, and the pearls, with the following Copics:

  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
  • Reds – R29, R27, R24, R22, R20
  • Blues – B28, B26, B24, B21
  • Hair – YR23, Y23, Y21

006 (Small)

The firecracker is from the Independence Day cartridge and the fonts are from the Mickey Mouse cartridge.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
