Eva - Vintage Style at Dies to Die for

Woohoo it's nearly the weekend!  I've been super busy this week working on some secret projects that I can't tell you about just yet, but I will say it's terribly exciting! I'd like to say a big hello to all of my new followers, it's so lovely to have you join me on my creative journey :)

I must admit to being just a little bit in love with today's card for Dies to Die for, the mojo was just racing along with this one, I had so much fun making it.

The beautiful girl is Eva, a Saturated Canary image from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.
Isn't she gorgeous?  I've coloured her with my distress ink markers....I know, I know, I will colour again with my Copics, but to be honest I'm just having so much fun seeing what I can do with the DI markers right now. I went for a slightly darker skin tone this time as I wanted her to look a little exotic.


Colours used:

Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Broken Twigs
Outfit: Milled Lavender, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Pumice Stone


I used some lovely Bildlamarna papers and the pretty doily die is from Cheery Lynn.
All papers have been edged with Pumice Stone DI and hand stitched with Top Stitch thread.


I added lots of lovely embellies, finished off with some daubs of Gesso, 



and decorated the inside simply to complement the front.



Embellies from the Ribbon Girl

Well that's all from me today, if you're in the UK I hope you're doing ok in the snow, and I'll see you back here on Monday.

Take care! :) xx
