A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Lizabeth - Key to my Heart

Hiya lovely peeps!  I'm finally here today to show my latest card using another fabulous image by Heather Valentin!  So, without further ado, here is the beautiful Lizabeth Key to my Heart and you can find her in the Lacy Sunshine store here.


You may notice a dome shape to the card ..... my original attempt of adding 3d glaze to the lovely Lizabeth ended in disaster!  Of course, we learn by our mistakes and so, after printing and colouring her again ....... I went and did the SAME thing!!! The glaze was quite clearly too much for the whole of the pic and poor Lizabeth had a distorted face.  After much debate with me and the light bulb in my head, I decided to round her back to normal by pushing the front of the card forward to create the dome and adhered to a separate piece of card behind to keep it in place.  


I framed Lizabeth using a negative from my spellbinder scalloped oval to create a frame and added flat backed adhesive pearls to the scallop points.

Copics used for this little beauty are:
Skin:  E000, 00, 21, R11   Greens:  G99, 94, 85, YG63
Plums:  V06, 15, 12, 000  Blacks:  C0, 1, 3, 5, 7


The beautiful papers are from both the Maja Vintage Spring and Summer paper pads, which I bought from Live and Love Crafts - as is the gorgeous plum shabby seam binding, twine, pearl string, bark heart and berry flower sprays.  I made the little scroll (inspired by a beautiful card from one of the lovely LLC designers).  The inside of which is obviously very private as it is for the eyes of the key holder only ;) 


Although I had a bit of a drama initially with my card, I'm really quite chuffed now with the whole shape of it and may even do another one ..... 


Thanks so much for popping by today and I'd love to hear of any crafty disasters turned good, which you may have encountered along your crafty journeys.
