Anything goes

i am loving my colouring recently using pencils so this idea popped into my head when i was going through my dig folders and she was just perfect.
so its an 8x8 white card base which i mat with 2 pretty papers , i distressed the edges and put them on a bit squwif ( not even sure thats a real word lol).
i added some vintage crochet lace across and mounted all the images which are as i said all coloured with pencil,
i made some tiny pencils with cocktail sticks which i chopped to size and painted with acrylics.
then to finish off i added a variety of the beautiful colours from the spring lucky dip collection ( i think) .

hope you like it guys x

as you can see iv not gone for a christmas card , and she works perfectly for a summer birthday card as well as a christmas card,

she is printed onto 160 gsm super smooth paper available from 
That Craft Place ( you really should try this paper for your colouring its amazing)
first i layed down some base colour with copic markers then i used pencils for shading and adding depth.

once coloured i fussy cut her out and layerd her onto 2 scallop ovals to which i added tiny halp pearls to each scallop, i used some of the lace cut and some fussy cut leaves and the fabulous Petal Lu flowers, with a tiny resin cherrub and a tag tucked under the top right hand side of the scallops to finish it all off .
