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.

'Liliana' Saturated Canary rubber stamp - MCH
Melissa Frances 'C'est La Vie' papers - MCH
'Floral Oval' Spellbinders die - MCH

Anyway I'm here today with my card for Crafts & Me & today with a new digi image release from Hannah Lynn.........they are all so yummy ;0)
This beauty is called 'Hillary' & you just gotta love her hair.............swoon......I want my hair that colour!!
I've been struggling with my colouring lately, mojo etc, so I sat in bed the other night with Hannah Lynn images & SC images & they sure got my ink flowing again ;0)

OK so we have a gorgeous butterfly, I love these things '0) The pearl centre is Maya Road but they have changed their design a bit now, but here is the link anyway as I dont think Sandy has this one in stock anymore. I also went Frantage mad with Shabby pink & Shabby white on a Metal Trinket & 
Butterfly Charm ;0) My Frantage I got from Ebay before christmas before everyone went frantage mad (card here it was used on) however I do know Sandy has a good selection of them in her store.

Flowers are all from WOC, Lace, sema binding & Cheesecloth from LLC.

'Hillary' was of course coloured with Copics & I went with violets.
Colours used were........
E11, E21, E00, E000 & R20 - Skin
V99, V95, V93, V91 - Hair, eyes & lips
C3, C1, C00 - Clothing

The papers I've used are Maja Design 'Oat Cookies' & I've lightly distressed them & inked the edges with Walnut ink. The sentiment was actually from a free stamp I got from a craft magazine.

Well thats it from me but pop on over to Crafts & Me & look at the fabulous digi images & rubber stamps Teresa has in her shop as well as lots of other yummy goodies.

I will be back tomorrow with some shabby chic-ness with my DT card for My Crafty Heart.
