Manga Girl

Don't forget to enter my BasicGrey Blog Candy. To enter all you have to do is click here !!!

I've had the time to make a card for the Simon Says Stamp contest which is being held on Papercraft Planet the only problem is, I have made it by the skin of my teeth as it actually closes tomorrow, 18th August. If you are from the West of the World you have more time to join in (unless of course you like to burn the midnight oil !!!). You can find details of the contest at the Simon Says Stamp Group on Papercraft Planet. Would be lovely if you could become one of our friends and stop by for a chat.

The contest is to make a creation with the following colour combo. Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery and Blush Blossom. The optional colours are Cameo Coral and White. The prize is a $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

I do not have any SU products so I had to improvise so the colour combo was brown, green and pink !

The scalloped card is from a card pack by Papermania

The DP's are BasicGrey "Euphoria" and together with the card tick all the boxes for the colours.

The image is of course that gorgeous little Manga Girl by Sugar Nellie and she has been coloured with ProMarkers.

Colours : Skin - ivory, blush and E01 Copic. Hair - gold, mustard and cinnamon. Top, socks, boots and bows - rose pink, cinnamon, marsh green. Outline - warm grey 2.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The flowers have been punched with two EK Success Retro Flower punches and pearls added from my stash.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances transfer and these can be bought in the Simon Says Stamp Store.

Keeping my fingers crossed 'cause a girl can never have too many shopping sprees, can she ?!!!
