It is the last day of my holiday... boo hiss. Ali had to go back this morning and he was totally in denial. At 8.15am, he was still sat in front of Sky Sports News in his pants!
Todays post is a bit of a rarity for me as I've managed to combine 3 challenges in 1 card! Check me out! This card is made to this weeks Friday Sketchers sketch, is in pastel colours so satisfies the criteria over at Papertake Weekly AND as I used my Nesties, I can also enter it into the A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge as I've used diecuts! Woo-hoo!
Please don't look at the skin too closely as my E51 ran out half way through colouring! I need to replace it but think I am going to go for a slightly different shade as Tilda does currently look like she has spent too long on a sunbed! I've spotted that most of you use E00 for your base skin tone but Cult Pens (where I get my Copics) is out of stock so I was wondering if there were any good alternatives you'd found in the Ciao variety. What do you think of E50?
BTW I am totally loving this paper/kit download. I think it is by the same designer that Imaginisce use but please don't quote me on that! Because it is so doodley, I think it would be a brilliant cover to a notebook.... watch this space!
Digital Paper: Smilin' at Me by Mindy Terasawa (Designer Digitals), Pink Petticoat Solid Olive.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Embroidery thread, brads from stash, Nestabilities, computer generated sentiment applied with Safmat.
Right, I'm off to enjoy my last day of freedom before I'm back with nagging students and academic staff who don't want to conform!
