Good morning everyone, I had a lovely day yesterday had a great girlie night last night with a few drinks and lots of gossiping and giggling, and lots of time to do some crafting on the afternoon. I actually managed to get two cards done! So that's why I've had two posts in two days!
As soon as I saw the challenge title of 'Dots' over at Lovely Haenglar Only this little lovely came straight to mind. When I had a rummage through my paper it had to be this paper from Lost and Found from My Minds Eye. I thought I'd carry the dots theme right through and use My Favourite Things Die-namics for the doily and the border. I had lots of time to have a lovely mooch through my stuff and came upon some Whimsey stamps and dies, the template for the die is invaluable, and carrying the theme of dots it had to be this ticket sentiment.
I coloured her yesterday so I know the colours, her skin is R20, E0000, E000, E00, E11, her hair is E57, E55, E53, the dots are BG75, BG72 and BG70, I don't know why but I find these colours really hard to blend which is why I've just taken to using them on small areas as I really like the colour. The rest of her outfit and shoes is C0, C1, C3, C5 and C7. I've cut part of her out and then used a nestie to cut the circle so she fits in the doily. I was browsing the internet for paper to colour on as I normally use, and love super smooth stamping card from Lili of The Valley, but i came across Papertemptress and she explains a few papers I got some of the cryogen white and wow! It's more of white, than white but it has a lovely sparkle to it that is still there once you've coloured and I find it as easy to blend on.
The flowers are all from wild orchid crafts which I've once again covered in glimmer mist, lol.
I love decorating the inside of the card too, I think it makes the card look extra special. I also make envelobox's to fit the card exactly, and use a matching ribbon to fasten them.
Enjoy the rest of the long weekend, I'm working 12 hours again tonight, but on the plus side I get to be off on Tuesday too with the kids.
