Long time, no share!!! I'm back! Mo's DT card

Happy Friday my dear friends!!

I have been away for my week on vacation, and I've so missed sharing wtih you my latest creations!! A week without glue, glitter and paper.. that's way too much!! lol

BUT I took my Copics and images, so at least I did not have to go without colouring as well.
I do hope you are all well, happy and enjoying Summer. But I so miss winter weather, I am looking forward to some cold and rain. So sorry to hear that in some places you might want some heat and summer weather, and you don't have it! For me, I think I had enough of this scorching heat and dryness everywhere. During Summer months I am not to be seen without a bottle of water near me, everywhere I go! :)

Anyway, the first image I coloured during my rest week was this cutie Strawberry Girl. I just Loved this imge as soon as I saw it, and was on my wish list from the very first day that Mo showed it on her Blog.

Isn't she darling? I teamed her up with a strawberry paper that my dear friend Sonja sent me, and with some cute red and white ribbons and embellishments that my sweet DT buddy Iris sent me for my Birthday. Mwah to both of you .x

The light blue background is made with chalks. Usually it doesn't really show in pictures. I hope you'll be able to see it.

The red pearls, lace and strawberry charm were forgotten items in my stash. It's been a while since I used them

Sweet Summer hugs to you,

Hi Rosette, so nice to see you crafting again. Your card is gorgeous and beautifully coloured. I would love some warmth & sunshine, typical english weather over here

Fae said...

Saw your card over at Mo's page on Facebook and she gave me the link to your blog honey, your cards are gorgeous. Do you have any tips on how to get the skin right? I use ProMarkers Ivory and Blush but I never seem to get the blending right. I have copics too but I don't seem to get on so well with them. If you have any tips I would really appreciate it. You seem to have mastered it. Maybe I just need more practice????

Hugs, Fae xx
P.S Come over to England... it's pouring down here!!! lovely and cool too x
