My Crafty Heart & Saturated Canary's Liliana

Hello all you lovely people out there, how are you? Its lovely & sunny here by the sea.......although I am still in my jammies........ssshhhh ;0)
Now my DT card is for My Crafty Heart & I've used a Saturated Canary rubber stamp & only tried something new with my colouring..........I have tried to mimic distress inks with my copics. Although the skin I did the same as usual lol.
Yes I've gone for violet colours again, think this may be a new colour addiction ;0) I added stardust stickles to her eyes for some sparkle & her hair bow.
Copic colours used are.........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E47, E43, E41, E40 - Hair
C3, C1, C00 - Top & Shoes
V95, V93, V91, V000 - Trousers & Bow
First time I've tried to mimic painting with copics & I'm quite pleased with how it went, need to practice more still.
I've decorated inside to compliment the front of the card. I love this new light box but I dont think they are very deep so its hard when I want to get an angled piccy :0(

I've frantaged up the frame that Liliana is on & I've also done the MF 'Frame' & the MB 'Fresh Foliage' die

I punched some small butterflies from my punch & a larger butterfly with MB 'Isabella' die from scraps of Maja design paper. I inked the edges & added Stickles.

The lilac feathers & cream seam binding are from my stash. The gorgeous lace is Melissa Frances, soooo pretty. The sentiment in the frame is a free stamp from craft mag.

Ingredients used are........
'Liliana' Saturated Canary rubber stamp - MCH
Melissa Frances 'C'est La Vie' papers - MCH
'Floral Oval' Spellbinders die - MCH
'Fresh Foliage' MB die - MCH
'Isabella' MB die - MCH
Prima Serenade Purple flowers - MCH
Stardust Stickles - MCH
Melissa Frances 'Crocheted Lace' - MCH
Melissa Frances 'Petite Oval' frame - MCH
'Heart' & 'Padlock' Charms - MCH
Resin Flower - MCH

Well thats it from me today I have Megan & Payton here at mine so I'm gonna play with my grandaughter now ;0) Why not pop along to My Crafty Heart & see all the gorgeous goodies Teresa has in her store, so many goodies to choose from.
