The East Wind - Belle of the Ball

Hi everyone 

Last one! I am now finally caught up on blogging all the cards I have made since Christmas but haven't had chance to blog. This last card is using a gorgeous image from The East Wind. I have been a bit scared of colouring this one up - THAT HAIR!!! but I hgave it a shot. I'm not 100% happy with her hair but really enjoyed the challenge. 

Paper - Hello Friend Polka pattern from the Cameo store Design ID #34108
Lace & Silk Crush ribbon - Primrose Crafts 
Pears & Cameo to cut all shapes - That Craft Place 

I used Copics to colour the image 
SKIN E33, E21, E11, E00
HAIR E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
DRESS R22, R21, R20, R01, R00, R000

I used the clear Copic Spica glitter pen to highlight the ribbon running through her hair (not picked up very well on the camera) and YES those pearls are individually stuck on (ever started something and though why did I start this!!!!) 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

  2. Are you havin' a laff! Her hair struck me as soon as I saw the card. It's stunning! Fabulous image coloured perfectly, so there! Love the rolled roses and the pearl trim around the circle is perfectly placed. I'd have it wobbling all over the place. Brilliant shaped card as usual. Do you think I like this just a little! LOL xxx
