As soon as I saw this image on someone's blog (I'm sorry but I can't remember whose) I knew I had to buy her. She's from Digi Doodle Shop and I just thought that she was so cute. It makes me think of a saying I've heard many times here in the UK - 'Big hat, no knickers' (or is it 'red hat, no knickers' - never sure!!).
What I did know is that the shoes would be red and the rest of it just fitted in with that. The only problem is....and not a new one for me....it's a while since I made the card but it took me some time to find the right sentiment for it and I don't know which Copic colours I used to do the colouring. I've taken a pretty good guess though and listed them for you below.
The hearts were punched from a Sizzix die I've had for years. The image was cut out with my faithful Nesties and the distressing was done with Fired Brick Distress Ink. The leaves were punched from DP that was lying around in my stash and I used my McGill Pine punch for that. The flowers are from the amazing Wild Orchid Crafts (link in my sidebar) and the ribbon is from Fantastic Ribbons who have a wonderful selection of ribbons at really bargain prices. Buttons are from my stash and scured with some crochet thread.
The DPs are from MME Be Loved Dearest Dots and K & Co Sera Sera. Now here goes for the Copics:
Skin: E50, E00, E11, E21, R20 Shoes and flower: R20, R22, R24 Hat: E40, E41, E43 Hat ribbon: G20,G21, G24
I'm an addicted crafter who enjoys all forms of craft but I mainly spend what time and money I have on card making. A sixty something year old Mum of two and Granny to six. Married for the second time around to Brian, my teenage sweetheart and living very happily in West Yorkshire, UK where I settled eight years ago.
I'm also an Accredited Crafter's Companion Demonstrator. Please contact me for further info.
