I've coloured!!!

I totally deserved to have a bit of me time too!

I've had a pretty busy week with one thing or another, and today was just a bit busier than usual.. however, after spending quite a while tidying up the clutter in my craft room, and getting bits put back where they needed to be, I thought I'd sit down this evening and do a little bit of colouring.

This is what I came up with - and I'm quite pleased with it if I'm honest..

Photobucket

The card was one I bought from the craft fair the other week, and I've only just found them again - I know... I told you I needed a tidy up! lol.

as you can see, it's a stepper card, and it has quite a few different layers to it.. but it looks really lovely when it's built up.

The image was one I've had a while and it had never been inked up.. so bless her, I thought she'd look lovely on this card.

I coloured her with a red tint to her brunette hair.. and kept the colours quite vintage and this worked best with the papers that I chose to use. The papers were from an old Papermania pad which I unearthed whilst sorting. (They are now in my 'need to use these more!' pile of papers.)

The flowers... oh the flowers.. well, to be honest.. it's amazing what you find when you start rootling through your stash you know!

Again, these are Papermania and I've had them for ooooooodles of time. Not sure how long, but thankfully the adhesive on them was still sticky. Haha. Aren't they pretty?

I thought they went really well with the colours of the card. I hope you like it too.. please check back tomorrow too... I'll show you the other card I've been working on!
