Morning Folks!! Yup, you read right hehe. I took some time out just for me to have a play with one of my absolute favourite artists images but shhhh don't tell my Maggies lol. So excited that Krista has eventually decided to sell her gorgeous images over at her Etsy store.
This sweet little girl is called "Stroppy Beth" and I've been dying to colour her in since Krista first put her up for sale. The dps I have used are by First Edition Papers which I just luv cause they're so beautifully embossed and glittered. The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.
As always she has been coloured in with Copics and I tried a new technique which I first spotted on Nic "Coops" blog with the white dots all around the image. Think it just makes the image pop. I dug out the old sewing machine too for this one as over at Saturated Canary they're wanting to see stitching so I'll be entering this card into their challenge. I've followed the fabby sketch from CLP so this card will be entered there to. Will also be entering Bunny Zoes challenge of lace and Crafty Ribbons Challenge of ribbon and lace. Polka Doodles are also wanting to see ribbons and bows so it'll be entered there too. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're all having a fabby weekend so far. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
