Inspire Beauty In All That Surrounds You


Good morning lovelies how are you all? The lovely Tracy from Make It Crafty DT asked me if I would like to be a guest on their Inspiration Blog..........of course it took me all of 2 nano seconds to say a big fat YES!!!!!!! Now the fabulous talented Zoe has sooooooooo many fab images in her store, it really did take me FOREVER to pick my images, I already have quite a few, but this was hard!!!
Anyway I decided it had to be a girl, with long flowing hair & lots of pleats or folds in her clothing :0)
So I went with 2 images & merged them together............
............these are 'Girl With Glass Slipper' & 'Courtyard' digi's. I've kept the card pretty simple so the image is the focal point..............well simple for me.......I'm missing my foofiness tho ;0)

The chipboard frame is also from Make It Crafty & I painted it with white gesso.

I was colouring my piccy & my beautiful cat decided to jump up on my shoulders making me jump thus creating this mess!!!! Was not happy & in a huff put it on the table then starting thinking about printing another one out or choosing diff image................ However..........

............I then decided I would try to fix it as time was against me. It worked :0) So dont always throw those images away that you have made mistakes on.........some can be saved ;0)

The image of course was coloured with Copics..........
E13, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20
E29, E27, E23, E21
R85, R83, R81, RV10
C5, C3, C1, C00
E59, E57, E55, G05, YG06
G99, YG65, G21
I've just realised I've forgot to do the sky..............ooopps :0(

Ingredients used..............
Digi images merged - Make It Crafty
Chipboard Frame - Make It Crafty
Prima 'Tea Thyme' papers - My Crafty Heart
Pearls - My Crafty Heart
Sentiment - Whimsy

So there is my wee creation for Make It Crafty, thank you soooooooooo much to Tracy & Zoe for having me as their guest I really am truly honoured sweeties, mmwah xxxxx
Oh before I go tho pop on over to Make It Crafty as Zoe has a sale on, yes thats right A SALE!!!
Don't miss it peeps. 
Take care lovelies, cheerio xxxxxxxxx

Thank you all sooooooooo much for your lovely comments I am EXTREMELY lucky to have my cupboard..........altho I do miss my truck & a teeny bit of that money paid for this cupboard. I am really surprised about the amount of storage it can hold I really am. Here is the link to this cupboard for those wanting to know. Now its the older version of The Workbox but its also cheaper than the newer ones. The newer ones have plastic boxes instead of canvas drawers, however I prefer the canvas drawers. If at any time you wanted to change the drawers around or even take them out & use the shelves then these drawers unzip underneath & fold flat, so would take up no room if you wanted to store them when they were not in use.
I would say the only downside to this cupboard is I have to be a tidier crafter lol......mmmmm I'm saying nothing lol.....

"Do you like home-made orange upside down cake?" You're kidding right? Anything with 'cake' in the title and I will be there ;-)
Stunning card - as always your colouring is amazing. You really inspire me to experiment more with my Copics.
Glad that you managed to cover up kitty's nudge. I would have cried if I had to start colouring that all over again!!
