Thinking Of You

Hello to my sixth follower Pat, who noticed the deliberate mistake last post, lol!

I've not long since come back from the dentist after having to have two fillings, my face feels huge and I'm having a warm cup of coffee through a straw and feeling only slightly sorry for myself :(.

Once again I have another Hanglar card, I just can't seem to stay away from these cuties. I'm entering this one into lovely-haenglar-only 'Sketch and portrait' and also into just magnolia and hanglar stanglar 'Anything goes'.

I saw this technique ages ago in a Magnolia Ink magazine and this is the first time I've used it and I'm quite impressed how easy it was. I've coloured her in with copics and prisma's. I've kept my nestie in place when I've coloured the edges with distress ink.

I can't remember the exact colours, but I know the ribbons are from E40, E41, E42, E43 and E44. The blue dress is from B91, B93, B95, B97 and B99. The skin is my usual E0000, E000, E00, E01 and E11 with prisma pencil for the cheeks. The carnation leaves and stem is G82, G85 and G99 and the carnation itself is R22, R24 and R29. The hair I can't even guess.

The gorgeous paper is from raspberry road designs 'Tea for two', I love the ditsyness of this pattern. I've distressed the edges and got my sewing machine out. The flowers are mainly from wild orchid crafts with the small blue rose buds coming from ebay ages ago. The sentiment is also from hanglar along with the circle background, I've aged the papers with Tim Holtz distress inks.

I've also used my doohickeys and card from my (getting quite considerable) stash, lol.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend, I've got a full weekend with my kids as I'm not back to work until 9am Monday morning, YAY!!!
