Simply Sassy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fun Simply Sassy by Sugar Nellie Blog Hop,

Today the DT are having a hop using Simply Sassy's from previous releases.  Be sure to leave a comment on each of the DT Blogs along the way as some members have candy and it could well be hidden.  If you have arrived from the fabby Anita's Blog then you are on the right track.  If  not then you need to start HERE.

I have been itching to ink up the "Artistic Goddess" availalble from Funky Kits HERE. I think she's a bit eccentric so I felt she needed to have coloured hair, well it is craftworld afterall so we can have  blue, or purple hair for that matter, ummmm purple, might be an idea for the next ink up, lol.

I seem to be really into my border punches at the moment as you can see. I have used it as the main back panel and then around the oval shape. 


I sprayed the flowers with pearl glimmer mist, and silk ribbon for that matter, I do like a bit of sparkle.


A close up of Little Miss Eccentric. 


And here's the mini candy that I have to offer, so be sure to leave a comment and I will draw a random winner on Monday.

Those floral sprays are quite stunning & I love that corner piece with the pearl & the way it hightlights the curls of her hair as does your blue ribon. Your use of the border punching for edging the oval is so effective too.

cardmaking bird said...

Wow - just gorgeous! This is one of the only ones that I've not inked up yet! I'm loving your borders - I might 'case' this idea, it's a great way to use your punches. Hugs, Marie xx

Julye said...

I always fancied blue hair like that but was never brave enough, when I was young enough, not to have the blue hair but afraid of what my mum would have said and then the thoughts of the money wasted as she would have made me change it back to another reasonable colour. I did once suggest it and the upset that caused was bad enough, now I would just look daft, but I do have a blue wig that I can wear for halloween. Fab card and love the flowers and punched borders thanks for sharing.

Nicolchen said...

WOW...the colors you´ve used are fantastic...your card is gorgeous :0)))
