Good Morning :) I hope everyone has some fabby plans for the weekend. We will be staying warm and cosy today, as about another 4 inches of the white stuff fell again last night!
My card today is for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin, where this week our theme is 'Ribbons'. Our monthly sponsor is The Ribbon Girl, and our weekly sponsor is Crafty Ribbons - aaaah, I geddit! lol :D
Now I think I mentioned in my previous post I have been having a crisis of confidence with my colouring, so this week I fought off a few demons, and tried not to get so wound up or precious about it. I coloured this gorgeous LOTV image in with PM's and matted onto white American Crafts and DCWV cardstock. The papers were a smashing christmas present from my blogging buddy Paula, so I have no idea what they are and the rose and seam binding are WOC. The sentiment is LOTV and the tag die, heart die and filligree frame hooked around my image are Cheery Lynn. The border punch is MS and the heart brads are from very old stash.
I have finally completed my DI refill collection, so intend to have a bash painting with those. If anyone has any tips or suggestions on flesh colours, hair colours etc I would really appreciate it, as I am starting from scratch. I have the DI pens, and didnt really get on with those, so I am hoping I fare a little better with the inks (fingers crossed!).
I am entering this card in the below competitions:
