Flower Girl

Last weekend I joined in my first live colour along with Alyce of Kit & Clowder.

Due to the time difference (Alyce is in Oz) it did not start till 11pm.  so I armed myself up with Coffee and coloured along, it was such a great way to learn, I even managed to keep up, although by the time it finished at 1.00am my eyes were starting to get a little glazed!  But I am so glad I joined in and cannot wait for the next one.

Anyway, the image we used was by Whimsy Stamps and called "Flower Girl'.

The image is coloured with Copics, I did not have any greys for the hair so decided to use some dark BV colours and think it actually came out ok.

Here is my finished card

The papers were some my MIL got free with a magazine and I thought the colour match was perfect.

I added flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, swirly die is Memory box and the banner is La La Land.

The sentiment is from the Silhouette store and cut in White Vinyl.

Thanks Alyce for such a fab colour along and wonderful classes.
