Shhhh...

Hello lovely people,

I can't believe it's time for another challenge at In The Pink already and our theme this week is...

EMBOSSING

So, this can be dry embossing or heat embossing or both as some of the Pink Ladies have done!

Even though I still have tons of Christmas cards to make I took a little break as I really wanted to use this fab Saturated Canary image.
No surprises that I have gone for Frantage as my embossing; I am a little bit addicted to the stuff!  I like a little sprinkling round the edge of the main image but this time I also added it on the corners of the DP and love how it turned out :-D

 The image is mainly coloured with Copics but I did paper piece her jumper and just added a tiny bit of shading to it.


I was in the mood for a little distressing with this card and roughed up the edges of the DP with a Tim Holtz tool and then inked and stitched them.  I used a die to cut the flowers from scraps of co-ordinating DP; it's always nice to use every last bit of DP!


Card recipe; 
DP: a mix of Vintae Autumn Basics and Vintage Frost Basics - Maja Design
Flowers: Memory box die
Lace: from stash

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/21/11 & R30
Hair: E35/37/47
Eyes: E37/47
Skirt: E40/41/42
Bookes: RV91/93/95 & E40/41/41 & T0/1/2/3
Mug / pen: RV91/93

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  Saturated Canary (distress)
2.  Bunny Zoe (shabby chic/vintage)
3.  Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
4.  Top Tip Tuesday (be krafty)

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Hugs,
Kat xx

This is a beautiful card, Kat! I really love the colours you used!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm going to just say that my goof was done on purpose. It was a test to see who is actually paying attention to what I write. Apparently you are the ONLY one! lol I'm going to change it to QAE because you are correct...that's what it should be! I'm sorry I don't have a prize for you! :o)
