Just words....

This is one of todays creations... I couldn't think of a sentiment for it, and so a rather boring title.... I think this is one that Amelia wants to send for valentines day... she needs three cards so she tells me (yes my daughter has three boyfriends?!?)... Well I have news for her, I will make one and she can make the rest! 

Well I'm making cards just cause I can't do much else at the moment, were still having a lot of work done on the house, and I can't have the kids here when we have the men in, and so I'm making the most of the time and 'practising' as I'm calling it! Im loving it, I can clutter the whole lounge up at the moment!! I can't wait to get the craft room done! It now has had the walls skimmed and it has a light switch! So much still to be done in there before I can plan how I want it! 

This is the beautiful Nevaeh from Saturated Canary, isn't she just stunning, I love colouring her... the detail on her dress is amazing!! I have used a new colour combo today for colouring her dress R29, R27, R22, R20.  So happy with how she has turned out! 


 Her hair was coloured using E35, E33 and E31.  Her skin was the usual suspects E02, E00, E000 and R20 for her cheeks, I used R02 for her lips.  The bottoms of her shoes were coloured using C-7.   Im not sure if you can see in the above phot but I have tried adding some 'dots' around her rather than shading.  I just used a mix of the pens that had been used to colour her.  Quite impressed for a first attempt! 

Im still trying to give my idea of 'collaging' my pictures down, just feel it makes the post a bit lighter for you?! If you have any opinions on it let me know! Would love to hear what you think! 


As you can see from the picture of her dress (Top Left) I have added some liquid pearls to her dress, the picture doesn't do it justice - It looks better on the real thing! You can also see the dots around her a bit more, I added some liquid pearls there too!! I used E35 to colour her eyes! The ribbon and papers are just rom my stash.  Oh how i 'dislike' tying ribbons! 

Well I hope you like her! I would like to enter her into the following challenges; 

 Belli Challenge - Hearts/ Valentines
Divas By Design - Anything goes
Inky Impression - Pearls or Bling (her skirt has liquid pearls on)
More Than Favors - Love
