Did you notice my new cool blog design?? Did you? DID YOU??? Aw come on, surely you didn't miss it!! I even have my own blinkie now - yeah, I know. I'm totally "with it"!
You see, couple of days ago I stumbled onto Laura's blog and was oohhing and aahhing over her design. We got talking and she - a total angel that she is - gave my blog a make-over! I love it to bits - it's so ME!!
I still need to do some tidying up and sort out the pages but boy do I like the look of my blog now!!! Thank you so much, Laura!!!
Oh, and I have a card for you too!! We have a sketch this week at Sentimental Sundays. Our own wonderful Dorcas designed it (have you SEEN her colouring - pure wow-factor) and she should definitely make them more often. Real good working layout.
I won some images from Dew Drop Craftz recently and wanted to play with them. It's my first time colouring manga style image but I was more so experimenting with a dramatic look. Got a bit carried away with the shadows on her face but hey. So what that she looks as if she has a stubble!? Artistic liberties and so on...
The colouring is done with Copics and sponging with Distress Inks (Vintage Photo).
Papers are from DCWV and the handmade paper and tickets I got in a RAK from wonderful Tara - where would I be without my friends!!!
The button is from my stash an there's also baker's twine involved. Yeah. That stuff makes me happy. Consequently you see loads of it on my cards...
