So, I was caught up with all the challenges that had inspired me to create this week, and just couldn't resisit colouring another of the Sherbert images that I stamped at Marlene's....and what better way to use one of them than to follow one of Marlene's own sketches. So for my card I have coloured the PollyCrafts Designs "Sherbert" image with distress inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Walnut Stain (Hair)
Broken China (Eyes)
Fired Brick & Spiced Marmalade mixed together (Dress)
Fired Brick (Shoes)
Antique Linen/Walnut Stain (Sign)
Peeled Paint (Grass)
Spiced Marmalade (Flowers)
The papers are all from the My Minds Eye Magnolia range and I have also used some Stampin' Up Choc Chip taffeta ribbon, Prima blossoms, 2 heart pins and a Making Memories "Love Letters" ticket. The swirls have been created with my QK Revolution "flourishes" die and finally I added some bling to the edge, Sakura clear glitter gel pen to her hair and Stickles "orange peel" to her wings.
Below is a close up of the main image...
The inside has also bee decorated with scraps of the same paper, and also with a sentiment by Penny Black.
