Tilda with pink hair, and a DT call entry

Morning bloggers, and how is everyone today? I must apologise for being so behind with my blog visiting and commenting - I needed to rest and have some time off, so now it's a case of catching up on everything. I'm getting there and I'll be round for a visit very soon.....promise!

So, another Saturday means another challenge at Make It Colourful, and this week we have a goodie......colour hair but not the usual colours of black, brown, red or blonde. Any other colour you like though! We are sponsored this week by Quixotic Paperie, who are UK stockists of Make It Crafty products amongst other crafty delights, and a very lucky person can win a £10 gift voucher for their store.

This is my DT card, and it's turned out way fussier and frillier than I had intended. The scene is a mix of rubber and digi images - you might recall seeing this Chaise from Make it Crafty in my last card on Thursday and I can promise you I'll be bringing it out a lot because it's my New Favourite Stamp. And I've wanted to use this little boy from Crissy Armstrong, called 'Can I Kiss You?' for a while now - it seemed perfect to have him on this gorgeous seat - and who better to pair him up with than Tilda? I decided to give her bright pink hair as per the challenge, using copics RV23, RV25, RV29, and R39.

The decorative swirly corners are laser-cut chipboard by Make It Crafty, which I got from Quixotic. I used a Krylon gold pen to coat them with a little gold paint and added a couple of pearls to them. Some green ribbon, a double flower, some leaves, a heart pin and an adage ticket finish it off.

Stephanie aka Nerdette said...

Your scene is so sweet. I don't think it is too fussy at all. I kind of think the lace border reminds me of the skirting on a couch, which suits your scene. Wonderful job, the chaise is gorgeous.
