Double Trouble........

Hello there all you lovely crafters. Well I've finally finished my craft room, there are still a few finishing touches to do but I was getting severe crafting withdrawal & NEEDED to make a couple of cards. 1 of the cards is a digital image & the other is a stamped image...YAYYYYY!!! Since I packed up my craftroom I didnt leave my ink pads out for stamping so I've had to rely on digi images for the last 2 weeks, it hasn't been a bad thing, I love digi images, you can have them whatever size you want which is just FAB. The thing is I ordered loads of Magnolia stamps from Bunny Zoe, I spent a canny bit actually, naughty me.....I wanted the Bon Voyage collection & they all came the day after packing up my hobbit so for 2 weeks they have sat in their padded envelope.......I was gutted!!! Well yesterday I started to stamp them, only a few for now as I found 2 WOJ stamps that I had still not inked every1 like any of you have new stamps that have just sat there???? pleeeeezzzzeee say its not just me!!!!
Anyway without further ado here is a close-up of the image on my 1st card.....Hint Of Pink

This is Vikki Lee Vicious from none other than Kenny K's Challenge Blog I have put a link to his blog cus for some reason my internet wont let me onto his shop at the mo....darn thing.

Here is the card......I've seen a few people doing Mono cards just lately so I thought I would have a go as I had not done 1 before, not a whole image anyway, I chickened out & coloured the face skin tones lol . I chose greys but then I found this lush paper (can't remember the brand but I do know its called 'Hint of pink', hope that helps) so decided to add just a touch of pink to her lips & her guitar, I think she looks cool!!

Here is the side-view on the easel card. All the flowers I made myself, also the corners I made with my cuttlebug......I tell ya it feels soooo good to be able to play with my things.....I'm like a kiddie ina candy shop shouting SWEETIES & getting excited!!!!!
  The silver butterfly is from my stash, the sentiment is from 1 of my stamps & I ran the card thru my cuttlebug, the bottom flower I sprayed with Twilight Cosmic Shimmer & added a few bits of glitter dust & then wacked some black stickles in the middle, image is coloured with Promarkers. Hope you like this card the challenges I'm entering are below.......
       - Easel Card

For this card I've used 1 of my new Tilda's from the Bon Voyage collection & I just luurrrrvvveee this image so I coloured her up as soon as I stamped her yeasterday, she was actually the 1st 1 I stamped up....she is just gorgeous!!!
Here is Indian Tilda.....
She has been coloured with Promarkers except for her hair I used black Prismacolor pencil as I can get a better effect off that than my Promarker. For the jewels in her hair I used my gold gel pen.

Here is the card in full, I followed the sketch on Sketch Saturday which I rotated a little bit. The papers are Basic Grey called Kioshi, I've gone thru a lot of this pad its 1 of my faves so gonna have to get some more. The flat 25mm purple & green flowers I got from Crafty Emma's Store, don't forget Emma has a new challenge starting 28th August & has some lovely candy up for grabs Crafty Emma's Challenge All of the other flowers are from my stash as too are the gold corners. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
I am really pleased with how this card turned out, I think its my fave & I really enjoyed colouring her in, will defo be using this image again.
Well I think thats it from me, hope you like my cards & thank you SOOO much for visiting & for all your wonderful comments which I just luuuurrrvvvveeee reading, big MAHOOSIVE hugs to you all.

Lotsa of huggies
Vicky xxx - Favourite Things (the colour green is another of my faves)
