Sophie

It was my good blogging friend  Margreet's Birthday a few monhs back  and this the card that I sent to her in the Netherlands.
I used up the last of the hand made paper that I had made at the craft  club I go to in the village. Backed onto bronze pearlescent card stock to make a tent fold card base.  The framework and embellishments are from a company called Yoosami  which had been in a £10 goody bag  from the last craft show I had been to. Then I went in search of an image to put inside the frame. Searching through my stash I found some images by Pink Gem that I had previously coloured up whilst on holiday 3 yrs ago and had then brought home and done nothing with.   

This particular image is called Sophie and is coloured using Distress Marker pens. (I know this as they are the only pens I took on holiday with me and as I only had 8 of them  was quite restricted for colour.) Close up shown below. I added one of the buterflies with a gem in her hair to represent a bow.

  10. What a wonderful card Mrs A and such a pretty image. I do agree though, she looks a bit as if she's sulking 'got a pet lip' as my Mum used to call it :)

  13. I'm so impressed that you made paper. Was it hard to cut down the tree? Just kidding, that is a talent for sure. Your card is wonderful. Sophie isn't having a good day but you did a brillant job of coloring her with such limited markers. I love the copper paper and the tulips.
