Crafts & Me DT card.........Frosted Rose

Good afternoon all you lovelies hope you had a fabulous weekend. Mine was lovely altho I did no crafting what-so-ever I spent the whole weekend with my hubby & kids, it was fab we even watched Matilda saturday night lol. I am running a tad late today I have my daughter off school she started sneezing yesterday & by last night she has the full blown flu.....cus of her disability she gets it really bad bless her. We were supposed to go look around the Alan Shearer centre today for disabled children so just dad went & I stayed at home with Natalie.....he said its fantastic so we are all going up sunday to see what Natalie thinks of it.....I just want to go in the big ball pit with Natalie rofl.
Anyway onto my card. I've used an older image today by Hannah Lynn but its an image I've not used before but let me tell you I had so much fun colouring I loved every minute of it & it does take me a loooong time to colour images....especially hair as its my most fave part of an image & Hannah Lynn is perfect for that.
Anyway here she is...

Isn't she just so beautiful. I took the photo's outside today cus its just so lovely.

She is coloured with Copics I will put the list on at the bottom as well as all other materials used.
I added Ice stickles to her wing & her roses. I also went around her eyes with a Letreset fine marker to darken her eyes & make them pop out a bit more.....its like putting on some mascara & eyeliner lol.

The chain & friend charm are from my jewellery making stash.

The gems & the fabric used for the bow are also from my stash. I made this card to fit a few challenges.
The black ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons & the gorgeous Beaudoux Wine seam binding was off a fab blogging friend, thanks Rach sweetie....mmwah.
The black rose in the middle of the bow & the new prima papers 'Moulin Rouge' are from Crafty Emma's.
The smooth white card I use for stamping is this here which of course you can get with the gorgeous Hannah Lynn stamp 'Frosted Rose' from Crafts & Me.
Copics used are, E000 E00 E01 E13 R20
RV34 R11 R10 C7 C5 C3 C1 G17 G07 G14 & W5 for extra shading to her hair.
Also dont forget our current challenge we have going on which is 'Under The Sea' here.
Well thats about it from me hope you have liked this card its quite simple for me lol but this image doesn't need much she wants to be centre of attention so I thought I would let her be lol.
Anyway take care peeps see ya soonies, keep on smiling mmwah.
Thank you all soooo much for popping by I am off to pop on over to see you in between cooking tea, I'm making herb & garlic potatoes with some minted lamb mmmmm I love lamb, actually I love cooking but not basic meals they bore the life out of me so we leave them for hubby if we having something simple lol.

Gorgeous Vicky, what a stunning image and fab colours.

Julye said...

Hi Vicky love your card and her hair looks so shiny, wish mine had a healthy look like that.
The centre sounds wonderful might have to look it up though don't think I'd get my son anywhere near a ball pool now, though when he was at juniors we went to a party in one of these fun house things with slides and climbing and ball pools , my street cred with the other kids went way up when Andrew got stuck and I had to go help him, we finished up coming down a 3 story slide into a ball pool sandwich between 8 other children, my street cred with the parents went downhill rapidly then. Each party after that was held in a similar place the kids would come and ask if Andrew and I were going on the slide, parties became quite tireing especially when I could see all the other mums sat having a relaxed drink., I think I had most fun though.Hope Natalie feels better real soon and isn't generous with her bugs and is soon well enough to go have fun too.

Meesh said...

Hiya chick :)
Firstly, I hope Natalie is feeling better soon, poor love. I hate it when Boz gets poorly, so I'm guessing you're the same :(
Thanks for popping by and leaving your lovely comments, buddy. I'm trying to think and be positive. We were all really surprised Jay was let home for the night. It perked him up a bit being away from the hospital :)

Your card is fantabulous, Vicky... Her hair looks sooooo shiny! Gorgeously coloured as always. I put mascara on them too ;) It really does make them pop, eh?!

Catch up with ya real soon.

Hugs and a little cuddle for Natalie too...

Meesh. XXX

Hi hun,

Sorry I didnt stop by sooner. I'm a bit behind with comments. *blush* You know this card is stunning, right? I absolutely love how you colored the girl's hair. I never dare to color hair with any other colour except with brown, yellow or black. *sigh* the embellies on this card are amazing as well. You're one very, very talented lady and Ifindyour cards very inspirational! Thanks for that! Hugs!
