Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 88 -Humour

Hi Everyone, Happy April Fool's Day!!

This weeks challenge is hosted by Suze who has chosen the theme of Humour.

Suze would like to see some humour on your project.  Perhaps a funny image or sentiment, or you might just want to add some googly eyes.  Remember, laughter is the best medicine - so have fun with this one!

I saw this gorgeous digi from Redonkulous Designs called 'Funny Face' a few weeks ago and saved her for this challenge.

I also wanted to try pink hair as I have always stuck to traditional hair colours but wasn't sure what other colours to use with it until I saw...................

 My Kitchen Roll - Funny where you find inspiration - lol

I used a die cut from my Cricut Ormental iron cartridge to frame her and added some girly bling and a cute 'Hand Made with Love" metal heart.

The papers are NitWits - Promises

The great sentiment is from the wonderful  Gingers House

I coloured her using the following Promarkers:-

Hair - Pink Mittens, Blossom, Tropical Orchid and SNoir PL1
Dress - Marine, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg
Eyes - Cornflower, Denim Blue
Skin - Vanilla, Blush, Dusty Rose
Lips - Plum Preserve
Bra/Belt - Pink Lobster, Tropical Orchid
