I hope you all had a good Bank Holiday Weekend. Yet again the cold and rain didn't fail to disappoint and it was back again on Monday - yuk ! In fact, it was so chilly here yesterday, we lit the fire and snuggled around it and watched TV. It was nice to have a rest but it drives the kids crazy been cooped up all day.
Last night I was itching to make a card, perhaps not an unusual feeling for us crafters but I was itching to make a card just to make a card (ever get this feeling ?). I'm always thinking about DT cards and never seem to make a card just to make a card so I did last night and this is what I came up with.
I feel that I'm not very good at all in colouring hair and so I concentrated on that part and I think it came out OK. I am thinking about adding some Copics to go with my ProMarkers so if anyone can suggest any good colours to start off with, I would be grateful. I think I could do with some good shades for hair.
The base card is white Core'dinations as I've run out of white Bazzill.
The blue card is Core'dinations.
The patterned papers are Making Memories "Chloe's Closet".
The image is of course a Gorjuss girl from Gorjuss Girls Set 2 and I have coloured her with ProMarkers. Ivory and blush (skin), mustard, sandstone and cinnamon (hair), china blue and cornflower (top and tights), lemon, canary and gold (tights), blue pearl (outline). I also used a white gel pen. Brown distress ink from a foam pad for edges.
The ovals were cut with my nesties.
The swirls, flowers and bookplate are all Sizzix dies.
Sentiment is from Clare Curd's clear stamp set.
The pearls are liquid pearls.
The pearl brads are Papermania.
Back to school again this morning so peace again reigns over the house (apart from little Fizzy running around that is !).
Have a great week and I hope to be back soon !
