How are you all doing?
I decided to spend sometime in the craft room yesterday, as today I am taking the girls to La Ronde amusement park, well we are stopping overnight tonight and visiting the park tomorrow :-)
I have had this Bisto gravy tub, sitting on the shelf for absolutely yonks, and thought it was about time I used it.
So from this.....
To this ......
I am going to be decorating Shannon's bedroom in the fall, and she is going for purples. So I thought this would be perfect to go on her desk.
The image is from the Polka Doodles Candy Doodles CD and the papers are from the new Bonbon Belles CD. She has been coloured up with Spectrum Noir markers, and then I added a little more green ink for grass and then some clouds in the background.
The Spectrum Noir pens I used were:
Hair CT4, GB1, TN1
Skin TN2, FS2
Top HB1, HB2, HB3
Trousers LV2, LV3
Shoes PL1, PL2
Flowers OR1, CT4
The butterflies were cut by hand from some of the left over butterfly paper. And then I added some bling to their bodies. I only adhered the bodies to the container, to make them stand out.
This weeks challenge is still open over at Polka Doodles and the theme is In the Garden, so this would fit right in :-)
Hope you will go along and enter, you have until this Sunday, 18 August (12 GMT) to get your entries made.
I also have been having a little play around with Microsoft Publisher and made myself a new little watermark! What do you think?
