Hugs For An Emo Girl

Every now and then, you just wanna lie on the bed with a pillow and listen to depressing music.  I think it can be cathartic, in a way.  Doesn't the girl in this card look like that's what she really wants to do?  She also looks like she needs a hug. We all know that feeling.


I struggled with the colors and shading on this card.  I have a hard time with darker skintones but I thought her features looked more ethnic than I traditionally go.  All in all I'm happy with how she turned out.  Truth is I colored her like, a year ago but never made her into a card.  It happens.

I'm of course linking to some challenges:
Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting!  I'm off to finish some more cards.  Laters!
