Octavia in Blue

Having a few days off work to recharge the batteries does you good, I should be emptying my craft room but have been playing instead. Good for me but at this rate I'll never get the place rewired!

Anyway I printed some digi's more to practice my colouring than because I needed to make a card but now I've finished them I thought it was a shame not use them so here is one of the ones I've used.
I've started with a 6x6 Kraft card and added a couple of DP from the Winston Collection by Polkadoodles, I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pencils, I really wanted her to have red hair and lost count of how many pencils I used to get the colour something like what was in my mind.

I coloured the lace with one of my Graph'it pens and then decided to cut out my new die which was a club gift from C&C. I cut it in the same blue backing paper but it didn't look right so I used the same pen to colour this too.  I found an old swirl die and cut one from a bit of left over kraft card, added a few flowers, sparkly heart and a few gems. I wasn't going to add a sentiment but this was already printed so I thought it worked quite well so that went on too.

This is what I've used

I'm entering this into the following;
Creative Card Crew - Birthday with a sentiment
