At last something to post

Good evening and I hope you've had a lovely Easter. At last I have
a card to post ,and I've tried something new . On Wednesday I finally
gave in to temptation and purchased my first Saturated Canary image 
and by Thursday I had to go back and get more lol. I am totally addicted
to these adorable images by Krista Smith and what a delight they are to colour.
Anyway enough of my waffling and on to my card , I have used Honey I think she's
my favourite ( but it's so hard to choose)

                         

                                                            Close up of Honey

I finally opened the crate papers I have had since I started crafting
a few years ago. These papers have always been kept for special and I think 
Honey was special enough to open this paper pack lol.
To colour her I used copics but I tried several RV shades but couldn't
quite get the colour of her skirt to my liking so out came the flex markers 
and then the promarkers ,and eventually after a few coats of different pens and 
colours I finally was happy with the colour.  The hearts are spellbinders,the rose
is also a spellbinders die (Rose creations), I think this might be my new favourite
die (for the moment anyway).Even the sewing machine came out for this card.
Hopefully I will be back soon with more of these images.
Thanks for looking and taking the time to stop by my blog

Adorable card Emma - brilliant colouring and I love the image. I too have been trying to resist purchasing one of these images, because once I start I shall want them all!

Enjoy what is left of Easter.
