Evening all, I know some what of a late in the day post for me, BUT I have been thinking loads about this.... and I mean loads! 
As some of you know a couple of weeks ago I had the oppertunity to join the MIC hop for the new release of the Alice in Wonderland images, it really made me realise how much I miss using my MIC images that I have - I think I got myslef to a point where I didnt think I was capable of them, and so I have been on a bit of a roll with them this week. 
Then the wonderful Zoe announced that she was thinking about starting something new... she told us to keep our eyes peeled as something about to come up - so a number of us sat patiently waiting (well I tapped my fingers *Lots*), it was announced that there was a DT call
And so I looked at the details and I thought yes, no, yes, no, yes.... and so on. 
And so while thinking the whole yes v's no - I coloured up the beautiful Adele and shared her on the MIC Facebook group - she has been an image that I fell in love with when I first saw her and i just had to buy her - but I have been somewhat afraid of colouring her since I got her. 
The comments I had from so many people in there was amazing it really boosted my confidence and the way I see my own work! And so tonight I have sat here and made Adele into a finished card

Due to the size that I printed the image its a very odd sized card! Its a 7x7 - she was too big for a 6x6 and I didnt think I could handle and 8x8 and so I cut the card to size! 
The image was coloured with copics;
E50, E51, E53, E93
E31, E33, E35
The papers are from my all time favouriate Prima 'Fairy Belle'.  The edges have all been distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink Tea Dye, the rest of the embelishments are all from my stash - the rose originally had a loop on it to be hung but I have learnt that 99% of the time you can cut them off!  
Well I do hope you like her - I would like to enter her into the DT call at Make It Crafty.
Thank you for stopping by and I do hope if you have a moment you will let me know what you think!
