A little bird told me

I'm scheduling this post so fingers crossed, I'm either at a craft demo at the art shop in Kelly Bray, or I'm still in bed! For this card I inked up one of my old Penny Black stamps and coloured her in with Copics - her plaid dress is actually blue and brown .. .. and the pinks are certainly pinker .. .. still struggling with the camera but thanks to Paula for the tip about taking under the natural daylight lamp, I'll try that with the next card. I've kept the embellishments to a minimum on this card, it seemed to suit the image and the sketch layout from the Corrosive Challenge blog. The papers are digi designs from Cuddly Buddly and I've added Stardust Stickles to the edges of the papers and the image, plus I inked around the edge of the image with Spun Sugar Distress ink.

Copic colours I used:
skin tones - E000, 00, 21, 02
hair, shoes, centre of flowers - E50, 51, 53, 55
blues - B0000, 000, 00, 02
pinks - RV000, 00, 02, 11, 25
greens - YG91, 93
shadow - W1, 3

To embellish I've diecut a Marianne swirl, fixed a little pink rose and tied a bow with a snip of pale blue organza ribbon. The text I cut out from another Penny Black stamp, then to finish I've added little pearls made with my Waco cream pearl maker pen.

The Truly Scrumptious challenge is for pearls and swirls, while the ABC blog challenge is O for Old fashioned, just right for my old Penny Black stamp! Creative Inspirations are looking for plain and simple cards with no more than 2 patterned papers and less than 4 flowers - I can tick those boxes. That'll do for now, I'll do the links when I get back. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. The swirl with the bow & rose is birlliant with the little flower on top of the umbrella & her hat, lovely bit of accenting. You've made me see this image in a very different light (oops -sorry about the pun - not intended). Hope you have a lovely mirning too.
