Dirndl girl

I've been in the mood for coloring lately.  Maybe it goes with warm fires, hot cocoa, and finally seeing what all the fuss is about with Breaking Bad (wow!  no spoilers--I'm on season 2 I think). 

For these cards I worked up the brown-haired girl when I started coloring a couple months ago.  I like the overall card design but the coloring not so much--that skirt, lord.  I gave the image another go today using a softer palette. Happy dance.  Can you see the gleam of the Brilliance Platinum Planet ink I used on the floral die?  The glossy accents on those poppin' holly berries?  That little "joy" in the corner.  Swoon.
Card 1 Details:  Stampavie Gretchen's Winter Basket stamp (I love Penny Johnson designs), mystery PP, Recollections snowflake punch, Sugar Coating Lily White Glitter, Glossy Accents, Spectrum Noir, mystery ribbon, brad, Smooch (center of poinsettia), foam dots

Card 2 Details:  Stampavie Gretchen's Winter Basket stamp, glossy accents, Smooch, My Mind's Eye Mistletoe Magic PP paper, PTI card stock in spring moss, Spectrum Noirs, Memento Tuxedo Black, Brilliance Platinum Planet, Spellbinders Floral Oval die , MFT oval die, Hero Arts sentiment (part of one that says "Find Joy Everywhere"), foam dots
