Good evening blogger friends ....
Well I'm well and truly fed up with this decorating. It's one of those jobs that the more you do.....the more needs doing. When I steamed off the 30 year old paper it brought off bits of paint from underneath too. However, it was just in patches. I've tried sanding by hand and with all sorts of hubbies electric gadgets. The first coat of paint has gone on and it looks awful. I'm going to try another coat over the weekend and if it still looks naff it looks like I'll have to line it or paper it before painting. The drops down the stairs are enormous because it's a Victorian house with high ceilings! Fingers crossed the second coat evens it out.
Today I have a card for you that I've made for a friends daughter. She'll be 17, but is still made about Marie the cat from Disney's Aristocats. I've chosen Saturated Canary 'Jules'. These images are just so fun to colour and Krista has so many to choose from.
The papers are from First Edition - 'Sweet Owl' collection.
The ribbon was made after following a tutorial on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/HowToMakeHairBows). I'm really pleased with the outcome.
I've coloured her with copics. Oh, my new copics came today so that cheered me up. He he.
This is the first time that I've tried a dotted outline. I really like the effect so I think you'll be seeing it a lot more on my cards.
