Dancing In The Rain

Hello everyone how are you all?
I'm here with a card I made probably just over a week ago, the image I coloured as soon as I got & I think she was released a couple of weeks ago as a digi......its took me this long because I'm really not happy with the colouring on the image.... However we show our highs & lows on our here it is...
The fabulous image is called 'Dancing In The Rain Marci' & she is a digi image from La La Land Crafts, she was released last year in a club kit & now has been released as a digi. As soon as I saw her I had to have her.
I have colour her on Canson with distress ink markers & refills. I'm going to colour her again but this time on the fabulous Fabriano paper that Tracy stocks over at Noor Design really is a much better will do a comparison after I have done it.

I have used a few La La Land dies, the Heart Fence, Scalloped Border & the Butterly. The butterfly I've used both dies & layered them on top of each other. Pearl string down the middle & an edging of glitter around her wings. Flowers are a mixture of WOCNoor Design UK.

The paper is by First Edition & is called 'The Promise' had this a while & cant remember where I got it from, I've used the 8x8 pad on this & inked all edges with pumice stone.
Lace is from my stash, although the pink one I think was from LLC.

I have to say I lurve this image & will cant wait to colour her again, so I will be back with a comparison lol.

Well I'm off now I have the lawn to cut, washing to peg out & I have my grandchildren later which we have promised to take them shopping for new toys & shoes...yayyyy ;-)

Thanks for stopping by & your lovely comments, enjoy your weekend.
Tatty bye & nig hugs

Noor Design UK - Cindy

Hello everyone, happy Tuesday. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
I'm here today with my DT card for the Noor Design UK blog & today I have used a Whimsy stamp by the super talented Sylvia Zet.......OMG is she so talented & I lurve ALL of her images.
Tracy has added LOTS of new items to her store lately.....OMGoodness I dont know what to play with first.......I'm like a kiddie in a sweetie shop lol.

All links to items used are at the bottom of this post.

The Sylia Zet stamp is called 'Cindy', isn't she such a sweetie-pie. I coloured her with distress markers & refills. She is stamped onto Langton watercolour paper that Tracy also LOVE this stuff, totally converted most of the DT girls lol.
Excuse this photo I couldn't get the colouring right or true on it, for some reason the image looks washed out:-(
However one thing that is showing true is this gorgeous lace......I was nearly crying when I cut into.I just wanted to feel & stroke it forever...... This really is so incredibly beautiful in real life, it really is.

I've used gorgeous WOC flowers which Tracy now also stocks & she has just recently added these gorgeous Pomegranate Apples........I lurve the sparkle on these. Also at the back you will notice the new Poppies, I added apink one & a white one.

I coloured up some card with 3 different shades of green distress ink & then cut the Ivy Leaf from that & then added touches of gesso here & there. I found that by painting the card myself the colour is not flat.

Another leaf here from my favourite Craft and You die & I added one of the gorgeous Glass Strawberries.....ya gotta love these!! I also added one of the pretty Magnolia flowers.
Can you see that beautiful so pretty!!

The totally beautiful paper is Craft and You 'Rose Garden'.......ok I have to say this is my most favourite paper/pad ever.........the designs, the colours & the quality is indescribable, it really is stunning!!!

To get the shape around the image I used Marianne Design Wave Border Set. Also can you see the Scrapiniec chipboard at the top corner......I painted it with White Gesso then took some inspiration from our fabulous Bev Rochester & covered it with Tim Holtz distress glitter adds such gorgeous sparkle.......shame our camera's dont like sparkle :-(

I think I've covered everything lol, all links to products used are below as always. So why not sit back with a cuppa & go spoil yourself & go do some shopping in Noor Design UK.

Enjoy the rest of your day & thank you so much for stopping by.
Toodles, lotsa hugs
