I'm a Visiting Crafting Woman at Tickled Pink

Tickled Pink is celebrating their 1st birthday with a big party of loads of releases and guest designers. I am lucky enough to be amongst them and get to play with couple of ultra cute images!

Today we are showcasing Kellita - TA-DAAA:

She is available as a digital image from Oct. 30th at midnight - well, in Australia. I'm a bit muddled with my time zones. Even this post is a little (cough-cough) late. I think you will be able to preorder the rubber version as well.

Kellita is coloured with my trusty Copics. I will list the colours further on - yes, I actually remembered to write them down and didn't loose the slip of paper. Yay me!

The papers are from wonderful Restoration pad from Crate paper - LOVE it. So rich and warm and luxurious while still deliciously vintage.

The stitching is all by hand using a really cool multicoloured THICK embroidery floss - boy it was a nasty job to get it through the paper but I LOVE the result.

White corrugated thingie - erm, it was around the cookies. Saved it, cut the piece, inked it. Perfect.

The leaves are die-cuts I got from Tara, I embossed them with four (4) different colours of UTEE to get them right but now I love them.

And the sentiment is combined from several Elzybells stamps - they are now out of business, sadly. Excellent designs and real good quality.

Now the, and the promised Copic shades are:
Skin: E01/21/00/000/0000 (yes, I know it looks flat in the pictures, I guess because everything else was quite dark the camera didn't really pick up on skin contrasts. not that I'm a crappy photographer or anything!)
Boots: E79/39/97/99
Reds: R59/37/35/32
Yellows: YR24, Y35, YR15, Y21
Blues: B99/97/95/93/91
Hair: E47/44/34/42

I'd like to enter these challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Any Celebration
The Crazy Challenge - Tons of Shapes
Digital Tuesday - Include a non-craft item
A Spoonful Of Sugar - die cuts or punches
Crafty Calendar (monthly) - birthdays

Hugs
