Yuki & Serenity at Dies to Die for

Good morning! It's Tuesday...again...I don't know about you but the weeks seem to be whizzing by for me.  Looking at my DT diary I seem to be busy right up to September, but I do have a little holiday booked then and shall be taking a week off!

For my card today I chose to use a LDRS Saturated Canary stamp called Yuki. One thing I love about this stamp is that I've seen her used by various people and she always looks really different depending on how she's coloured up, colours, medium etc.  Since she has a Japanese name I decided to go with an Asian skin and hair tone and matched her to these beautiful papers by Bo Bunny, called Serenity. Totally not my usual type, but oh my I just love them.

  I coloured her with Copics to match the papers, she has a great outfit that can take several different colours without looking like she's just thrown up on herself lol.

Skin: E50, E51, E53, E93, V95
Hair: W9, W7, W5, W3, BV 23
Clothing: BG13, BG11, BG10, BG0000, R59, R46, R22, YG99, YG95, YG93, YG91, W9, W7, W5, W3.

I added a touch of glamour dust to the lace ruffle on her skirt.

The black frame she's on is cut with the 2nd largest dies from the Simply B Scallops set.The lovely brad on the bow is MME -Lush. Sadly the black ones are out of stock now, but you can still get them in Pink, Green, Brown or Blue.

I thought that the Cherry Blossom Branch die from La-La Land Crafts, was very in keeping with the papers and I cut 2 in black card stock and popped them down in opposite corners, adding a few little self adhesive pearls.

All that was left to do was to pop a few flowers on et voila! I really LOVE the way this turned out, just goes to show it's always worth stepping out of your comfort zone now and then and working with something a little different.

Enjoy the rest of your week, I won't be here again till Monday, but I can assure you I'll be beavering away behind the scenes creating for La-La Land Crafts new release next week, very exciting I'm sure you'll love it!

Bye for now!  : ) x x
