Good morning cafty friends...
Can't believe where the time is going lately. We're already over half way through the year and I'm starting to see a lot more Christmas cards on people's blogs!
Well I'm off from work for the summer now - just as the sun seems to have gone it's holiday too !
I've been trying to get on top of my DT work because I need to spend my time decorating and fitting out my craft room with some new cupboards and a worktop. There's so much to be done, but it will be worth it in the end. We started it at Easter!!!
Today is the start of another challenge over at Divas by Design and this week is an easy peasy
We are sponsored this week by the lovely Dilly Beans.
The Design Team were given some images to work with and I chose Skull Bow Girl Framed. She's part of the Big Eye Art Collection.
She was a joy to colour, especially those gorgeous big eyes. I think I will definitely be buying a few more of these.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out. I just love those big eyes.
I followed this month's sketch over at CLP Challenges.
The papers are London Market by Pinkpaislee and are from The Hobby House. They've been distressed with a TH tool and edged with Walnut Stain DI.
She's been coloured with my lovely copics :
Skin : E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Eyes : R20, YG95, YG97 (Whites C1, C0, C00 )
Lips : R32, R37, R39
Bow : C3, C1, C0 R81, R83, R85
Hair : E21, E23, E25, E29
Other ingredients are :
Spacers, Pearls, Pearl flourish, Floral lace, Brad and Aged Rose Frantage all from The Hobby House (I told you I'd bought a few goodies at their Birthday bash, Lol )
The flowers are from WOC and the heavily frantaged dragonflies are a DooHickey die.
Then finally I added a little Gesso. For me I have my heart in my mouth hoping I'm not going to ruin hours of work with a few dabs of gesso. I guess it's a confidence thing.
Do pop on over to the challenge blog and see the fab inspiration from my fellow teamies.
Hope you can join us.
