Carmen Electrafying Crafty Catz DT

You can find my Candy here

TGIF!  I'm here with my last but one DT card for Crafty Catz before we take our Christmas break. I'm really looking forward to some time off, I have a list as long as Santa's for things that still need to be done lol.

Anyway, our challenge this week is to use 2 or more dies on your project, our sponsor this week is Kenny K and I've used one of his digital images on my card today.
Originally I'd planned on going all rock chick with this, but I got these beautiful Lost & Found papers by MM in my Dies to Die for DT pack and I've been itching to use them.  Seriously I'm so in love with these (they're double sided too), that I'm going to have to buy a pack so I can use them more...and maybe one for stroking too lol!

So anyhoo, who said that sexy and sassy couldn't be pink and feminine...maybe it shouldn't, but it really works.

Aren't these papers beautiful?  They're by MME, the Lost & Found Record It range and the pack is Heirloom. I've used some Spellbinders nestie circles, and a La La Land Heart Border.  Some pink velvet trim and some black lace I found in my stash.  

The image is Carmen Electrafying.  I've coloured her with my Copics, a bit different from my usual colouring style as she was quite 'cartoonised'.
Colours used were Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, Hair: W7, W5, R83and R81. Clothing & accesories: R85, R83, R81, W7, W5, W3, W2, YR 23, YR 24.

Flowers are from The Ribbon Girl. I popped a couple of small pieces of Tim Holtz film strip ribbon behind the border.

Love these ticket sentiments.  They're from Whimsy, The Fun Life Tickets 2 and I cut these out with the matching Whimsy Ticket die.

I finished the whole thing off with some bling.

Well that's my make for today, do stop by the blog and leave the girls some love, they've made some fab cards to share with you, and why not join in with our challenge, as long as your card has 2 dies on it or more anything is good :)
