Good afternoon to all my lovely followers and those just dropping by, and a big welcome to my newest followers. I'll admit I'm like a big kid and I always get really excited when I see that the number counter has gone up :)
I am feeling quite a bit better today, I just need to get rid of this chesty cough now, but I did sleep more this weekend and feel more lively.
I have a card to share with you today, this one I made just because I love the image and that was enough to inspire me. I hope you like it.
I seem to have a thing for lime this week don't I lol, but it goes so well with these deep purples.
The image is Vintage Violet from Saturated Canary, I've coloured her up with my Copics.
Skin: E000, 00, 11, R20, 11
Hair: E50, 51, 53, 55
Clothing: V99, 95, 93, 91, YG06, 03, 00, W05, 03, 02, 0
I finished off the image with small small spots of Liquid Pearls in Key Lime (this one doesn't get out much lol)
Papers used are Pion, Almas Sewing Room....so beautiful...if only you could tell under all the embellishments lol. I've used several die cuts the Clock is from Cheery Lyn, the Swirls are Doo Hickey, the oval frame is Spellbinders and the button border is from Memory Box (I actually forgot I had this one and it works great for this card, I must use it more often)
The large pearl brad and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts except the white daisy which is from the Ribbon Girl as are the pearl beads, lace and top stitch thread.
The small crystal brads, pearls and the charm are from Live and Love Crafts, everything else is from stash, including the buttons which echo the ones on her dress.
I decorated the inside quite simply with coordinating paper from the collection, it leaves plenty of space for writing a message so I didn't add a mat.
I'll be popping this into my Etsy store later today.
