Sweet victoria

Good morning everyone I do hope you all had a great weekend.I managed to get 2 cards made and some images coloured with a couple of ideas in mind so watch this space ;-)

 well my card for today is using a sugar nellie stamp one of my favourites of all time I think Victoria
I coloured her in before I had any idea about what card or colour I wanted to use and when I put the colours together on her I knew exactly what I wanted

 the card is 8 x 8" so quite a big one but the image is quite large to more to colour hehe. All papers are freebies I found a load more last night too as there have been loads of blog trains going on over the last couple of months and I missed them so had some catching up to do. there are loads of generous peeps out their thank you to all of them.
anyhoo I inked the papers with tea dye and broken china then matted onto white card that I distressed

 the greeting is one I have has for ages it came in a pack i got when I first started card making

 The image has been coloured with my trusty pro markers
colours used are
soft peach, blush, nutmeg, cappuccino, caramel, saddle brown
Pineapple crush, cornflower, denim blue, tea green, grey green
spice auburn sunflower, gold, apricot, cinnamon, raw sienna

 the flowers were from some bobbles I had (never used) but I took the off the elastic these were white so I colouured with capri blue PM to match the papers and colours
I added a brown organza fussy bow and then added some square gems to finish and there you have it job done

 I am entering this into the following challenges Anything goes  Anything goes  Girly but no pink  anything goes  Anything goes  birthdays

  12. Hi, Jackie! This is just wonderful! The image is one of my favorites. I have not used it because I don't think my Copic skills are strong enough to do it justice. When I see it perfectly presented, as you have done here, I know I am correct to wait a little longer. Beautifully colored and nicely composed! Thanks for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create!
