Ismaki Challenge #001 of 2009

So here is the card I made with the image I coloured on Sunday @ Marlene's. I had started to make a card with the image, but when I saw the sketch on Ismaki it just seemed to work for me.
The main image is two hAnglar & stAnglar images (masked) coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours (If I can remember them...LOL)
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Faded Jeans (Trousers & Waistcoat)
Shabby Shutters (Tie)
Black Soot (Boys Hair)
Peeled Paint & Shabby Shutters (Dress/Shoes/Socks)
Worn Lipstick (Hairbannd/Bloomers)
The only two colours that I can't remember are the boys shoes and the girls hair.....I am sure Marlene would remember. **ETA Frayed Burlap (Boys Shoes) & Vintage Photo (Girls Hair)...Thanks Marlene**
The papers were also from Marlene's stash (she sent me home with them as I coloured the image to match them...LOL) and are Imaginisce "Loves Me", and the only other things I have added are the Making Memories mini alpha stickers, a stamped swirl (Fancy Pants stamped with Versamark and rubbed over with irridescent chalk ink) and finally added bling.

Well it was back to school and work for Georgia and I....felt weird this morning....and not good weird...LOL. But need those pennies to buy new rubba....and help with the bills obviously.....LOL

This weather is making it impossible for me to get warm. It was -4 celsius at 4.30pm when I went out to take Georgia to gymnastics and by the time I got home 30 minutes later it was -5. The road we live on is now solid ice as the snow never cleared before the ice set in. I have phoned the council in the vain hope that they will send someone to grit it even though it is only a residential fingers crossed they will do something about it. Tonight I am determined to get back into the crafting groove and make something tonight.....the holidays have played havoc with my routine.

Hope you are all staying warm.
