At Craft Your Passion this week the theme is Totally Teal.We have the fabulous Saturated Canary as our sponsor too. Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!
For my card I’ve chosen the gorgeous Cerridwen by Saturated Canary and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers,adding just the merest hint of lip shine with a white gel pen.I have to admit I’ve never been brave enough to colour one of these amazing images before :s …even tho’ I have a few.I really wanted to do a good job and once I stopped putting pressure on myself enjoyed the whole process 🙂 And isn’t what it’s supposed to be about?I will definitely have to colour more of these now and it’s taught me a lot on how to improve too.Altho’ I might not have done as a grand a job as some of the more able colourists out there I’m still quite pleased with the result.I’ve teamed her with some beautiful My Mind’s Eye papers (aren’t they all?) that seemed to fit the bill and rather luckily I’d stocked up on this card I found at my local craft warehouse.I picked up a Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad,one of the newest colours,there too 🙂 I cut a tiny strip of the floral paper and took the colours for the butterflies on the image and die cut flourishes from there.I prettied up the punched butterflies with some gems.I had actually planned to make the base card in the same shape as the layers but could I find my 8 x 8 card blanks?No,I could not…until I’d finished my card and tidied everything away!Typical!lol…Anyway this is my card and just hope I’ve done this gorgeous gal justice 🙂

Some exciting news!Our dog has had a puppy…well,adopted one…er…OK it’s not real.It’s Sizzles from Charlie and Lola! My kids like to pretend he is her puppy and when they ‘abandoned’ her to play in the snow she snuggled up to Sizzles instead. She’s such a sweet♥.She’s part ‘scary’ Staffie and part not so scary Whippet.But I like to call her a ‘Whiffie’.Which suits her very well!lol Thanks for looking
