Here is my little bit of inspiration for you.
I decided to use the Emma Canning image to make a card for a friend. The image was coloured using my Spectrum Noir markers.
The patterned papers are from the new Polka Doodles Cherry Blossom CD, that was released just before Christmas on the 15 December. It is one fabulous CD, there are so many images (coloured and black and white for you to colour yourselves), sentiments, papers and some fabulous ready to go toppers to print and cut and so much more.
I used my first ever Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels Eight - I wish I had bought some of these when I first started back to card-making, they are great! I know, I'm easily pleased; you have all probably been using these for years LOL!
The sentiment is also from the same CD - isn't it just perfect - there really are loads to choose from, for all types of occasions.
I inked all the edges, of all the layers, with a purple Studio G ink pad and raised the sentiment layer to add a little dimension.
A little bit of ribbon, some pearl dots and a lovely bow to finish off my card. I of course also did the inside of my card. Used the Nestabilities in there too, and the little rose stamp is from a See D's set called Springtime Swirls (bought in the UK many moons ago).
I just love lilac colours and this came together really quickly, even the image didn't take too long to colour.
