Elizabeth

Hi, if you're looking for my post for The Squirrel and the Fox bloghop, please either scroll down or go here

It occurs to me that I should give more details of the card I posted for the hop.


The image is Elizabeth, a digi from Make It Crafty. I knew the prize on my blog would be from Make It Crafty, so that's why I used this fabulous image when I made the card last weekend. She was so satisfying to colour, in spite of all the complicated folds and flounces of her dress, which meant lots of shadowing!

I made it for a lady who loves Retro stuff, hence the double rings, cut with Nesties, about the image. The papers are Bo Bunny Vicky B. The leaves are made with a Woodware punch and the flowers are Wild Orchid - I coloured the Lily flowers with Burnt Orange Promarker. The sentiment is Lili of the Valley.

I stickled the flower in Elizabeth's hair (it doesn't show in the photo I'm afraid!) but otherwise added no bling because I wanted the papers to speak for themselves! The card is for a very good friend of my daughter, and I'm so pleased with it!

Apologies for the very washed-out photo: I'll be asking for a new camera for Christmas, I think!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

PS Why does my link to my earlier post not work? Can anyone help? I assumed I'd just do an a href and paste the url of the post, but it hasn't worked! All assistance very gratefully received!! xxx

Promarkers: Walnut, Henna, Chestnut; Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Pastel Pink; Antique Pink, Cocktail Pink; Forest Green, Emerald; Holly, Pine, Lush Green
