Saturated Canary - Honey

Hello my lovelies long time no see............well ok its only been a week but in blogland a week feels forever, well it does to me lol. So I'm extremly behind in everything I'm doing at the mo, however I've kinda made a pact to get bac k on track this week.
Starting with my VERY late DT card for the new Saturated Canary Challenge which this fortnight is....
GOOD vs EVIL
Tbh I found this quite a toughie, but luckily you can do just one or the other if you want.
I went with one of the gorgeous new rubber stamps & went shabby chic mixed with a bit of..........I will just show you lol..........
This gorgeous lady is 'Honey' by the uber talented Krista of course.
I love this image, she kinda reminds me of myself..............a tom boy with a girly side to her, she's just soooooooooo cool!!!!!!!!

Papers are the gorgeous MME 'Blush' & I've inked the edges with Weathered Wood DI & ripped 4 strips of paper & layered them on top of each other to add to the shabby chic look ;0)

Added Prima 'Say It In Crystals - Black' to the top corner. I've also used MB 'Forget Me Not Stem' die, I used pink & grey card then sprayed it with florist spray to soften the colour.

Lace & pink seam binding are from my stash. I added Prima Flowers & the other flowers are from WOC & the length of pearls are also from WOC.

'Honey' was coloured in copics & I added a lot of shading with prisma to add to the shabby chic-ness. I cant remember the colours as she was coloured up over a week ago & I forgot to write them down :0(

I made a bow with the seam binding & added a gorgeous 'Padlock' charm & a pink 'Scalloped Pearl' to the centre.
Theidea behind the card was rock chick with her frilly girly side saying......''When I'm good, I'm good...but when I'm bad I'm better''. We all do things we are not supposed to, whether it be eat too much choccy or sneak some new craft stash in while hubster is not looking................or eating that last cookie ;0)

You can of course get your instant fix of SC goodness from Krista' shop here or if you love the inkiness that comes with rubber you can of course get them from My Crafty Heart.

Will be round to see you laters once I've done my housework & my grandaughter has been to see nanna & gramps ;0)
Thank you sooooooooooo much for your continued support it really means the world mmwah.
Tatty bye xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
