Sofia Wishes

Hiya Peeps,

Hope your all enjoying the bank holiday weekend, can't believe it's coming to an end and I have to go back to work tomorrow......grrrrr and that means the diet starts again, definitely a grrrrrrr.

It's that time again, can't believe how quickly the monthly challenge at BunnyZoe comes around.  The theme this month chosen by Dorcas is "Ribbon or Twine", I happened to have used both but you can use either and as usual will run until the second Monday in May so you have plenty of time to enter.

The image is one of Stampavie's Sarah Kay stamps, Sofia Wishes, oh my goodness I absolutely love Sarah Kay stamps, so very beautiful and, guess what........ I've coloured her with distress inks.... I know another medium.  Some say you should stick to one but wouldn't that be boring, lol.  I was lucky enough to win $100 at 7 Kids College recently so I topped up on some distress reinkers and have put them to good use.  I hope you like her, I did her face a little too dark but as it was the last part of the image I coloured I wasn't going to start again. You learn don't you.

Here's the little lady, isn't she gorgeous. I have also used the new Marianne Design Guirlande to the right of the image and yesterday on my wishing well, isn't it lovely.

And a side view..........

I made the outer leaves on the pink rose by die cutting some Aida and added a little distress ink to give it a little colour.  Quite pleased with the result.

Materials Used:-

Stamp - Sofia Wishes
Papers - Pixie Glen and Glitz French Kiss

Don't forget I have new Candy HERE.

 I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Let's ink it up - Distressing
One stop craft - Pastel and Die Cuts
The Squirrel and the fox - Things with Wings
That craft place - spring
The crafty pad - Dies

What a gorgeous card, I love your colouring, big no no in my craft room to leave the face untill the end. That's the hard part.
But I think her face looks fine?
She has lovely rosy cheeks.
It's all so pretty, wonderful card.
