phew...at last


Hey sweet bloggers....at last I have managed a post today!!  now I have made several attempts at coulouring these beautiful digis from Sugar Nellie...but I am so rubbish at it!!  This was was my best effort and has taken me most of the day to colour but I have to say that I am quite pleased with it given what the others looked like!!

So the digi is called Amber from Sugar Nellie and I coloured her with copics and polychromos.  The colouring seemed to work best when I coloured a base with the copics and then built up the colour with the pencils....will try this method again but not today!

I saw the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday was an eye for detail and to me that meant a face focusing on the eyes...I do love Amber's eyes!!

I have used papers from MME - Unforgettable which I will need to buy more of cos these are so gorgeous and I cannot run out!! I distressed each of the layers before layering onto bazzill card, then I also distressed the card.  I made the flower from some felt with my die-namics rolled daisy, the flourish is from Magnolia.  There is dotty ribbon underneath the flower but I think it has taken over that spot on the card. I added a piece of aqua lace and some tiny pearls to the image to finish...hope you like.
