Playing with vintage again - somebody slap my fingers!

Now, my weekend of many cards is kicking off again! My current schedule leaves 3 first days of the week empty and then pretty much a card every day until Sunday. Good organizing there, Messy!! lol

This week at Tickled Pink challenge we have a real cute sketch. The prize is 2 digital stamps of your choice and the challenge requires a use of Tickled Pink image.
The image I'm using is called Cherrie Rose. She is coloured with Copics (you can find colours listed further on. The papers are from Bella Boulevard, all edges embossed with pink transluscent UTEE (totally yummy stuff!!). I used very dark purple Bazzill dry-brushed with white acrylic paint for matting.

See those intricate heart and corner flourishes and the word? They are all from the sheet of laser cut chipboard I got from Zoe. I dabbed the word and heart flourish with acrylic paint for slightly worn texture and embossed the corners with UTEE. I think it looks rockin'!!

And no, Zoe is NOT paying me to endorse her products, lol

Oh, and the die-cut under the image is Marianne's Creatables die I got cheap from Ebay.
Copic colours:
Skin: E000/00/21/11/13
Fence: E49/47/33/30
Hair:E09/08, YR14, Y35
Pinafore: RV34/11/10/000
Top and pants: YG:13/17/25/03, BG96
