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!

CMC - Guest Designer

Good Morning Everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day and was able to share it with your loved ones.  I got to share mine with a special someone whom I love with all my heart, will always look up to and treasure every moment with ........ my fabulous Mum! :)

I'm so excited about my card today!  I was asked to do a Guest Design spot for CMC Challenge and, of course, I jumped at the chance!  For this next fortnight their theme is ANYTHING GOES!!

CMC are sponsored by Marker Pop this time so I chose to colour up the very beautiful Nevaeh by Saturated Canary, which I have as a digi image but which can also be bought in rubber from Marker Pop HERE.

She was an absolute joy to colour up and, although I stayed within my comfort zone as far as her hair colour (I love doing coloured hair lol), I challenged myself to try a new colour for me ..... YELLOW!! Eek!  I do love the freshness of these colours together, alongside the beautiful aqua.  My papers are digital downloads from Bearly Mine Designs and I used Summer's Roses and Plain & Simple.  I've only just recently been introduced to these gorgeous papers by a lovely lady on their DT.  Thank you Jackie! These are truly stunning designs and I want ALL of them lol.

I coloured this little pretty up with Copics in the following:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20    Hair/Shoes:  V09, V12, V15, V17, V91
Greens:  G21, G94, YG63     Yellow:  Y00, Y08, Y15
Butterflies:  BG000, BG01, BG05

My floral display is a combination of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, the Hobby House and Live & Love Crafts.  Purple ribbon & pearl string from HH, Lace from WOC.  The large die-cut butterfly is a Marianne Design and the two smaller ones are from Joanna Sheen.  I cut out on pearl cardstock and coloured with copics.
