When Betty From The Movies Went Sepia

Evening, how are we all? Well been non stop with school runs today! Nancy loved her 1st day at nursery, I'm dreading Thursday though... think she cottoned on that I snuck off, we will have to wait and see how it all goes! Anyway tonight I have been a busy bee.... I decided that i was going to try and colour in sepia...

And I think I'm part way there - OK so this was the second attempt, my first attempt hasn't been mounted yet, may try to do that later tonight!!  But I'm so impressed with how she turned out.  SHe was coloured using Copics 

E50, E51, E53, E55

The papers are from the Bo Bunny 6x6 Gabrielle Collection, I distressed the edges using my SU distressing tool and then used Tim Holtz Tea Dye around the edges. The flowers were all from my stash and so were the pins.

To say I only used four pens I am so happy with how it all turned out! I hope you like my card as much as I do, I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
