Don't Faint - Two Cards In Two Days!

Hi Everyone

Yep it's me and I'm back with my second card for this weekend - I did say don't faint! ;o)


The weather has been awful today (hailstone again - that's three times this week!) so I decided that I would spend a few moments making a little CAS card and here she is in all her glory:


So what do you think?  I do love the pink and brown colour combo - they just seem to work.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary "Ellie's Birthday" by Krista Smith

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20 R30
Hair:  E55 E53 E51 E50
Everything Else:  Pinks - R81 RV00 RV000 RV0000 / Browns - E35 E33 E34
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W00

I stitched around the card with my new friend - my trusty sewing machine.  Me thinks you are gonna see lots of sewing from now on.

And that's that.

I hope you enjoy the remainder of your weekend whatever you may be doing.

Take care.

Toodle pip.

CraftyLoops said...

Hi Hazel. Im a new follower....woowhoo. This card is so pretty. I love your colouring of the image. I would love to be able to colour like that.....but alas I cannot! I saw you have a beautiful Candy too and you have far exceeded 100 followers, congratulations. I didn't enter your blog candy as I have only become and follower and I think its only fair at this stage in the giveaway that your previous followers have a greater chance of winning.....am I making any sense at all?! lol. I look forward to seeing who wins, its a stunning candy. The wee blingy flourishes are impossible to find in Northern Ireland so I will have to check out the store. I look forward to seeing your upcoming projects. Lee x

Nenny said...

Hazel, this is a really lovely card. The simplicity is so refreshing and shows off the beautiful Krista Smith image to perfection. I LOVE the colouring you've done on her. Gorgeous finish keeping the colour palette very simple. Elegant and frankly yummy :)
