Crafty Sentiments

Hi there everyone welcome to another monday morning! Does anyone else have  Mondayitis?

It always that little bit harder to get cracking on a Monday for me especially when i dont get on well with the heat...roll on a nice warm autumn!

Well this week we are sponsored Crafty Sentiments over at the challenge blog
Through the Purple Haze Challenges 

Here is my make and it isn't the greatest photo as i was really naughty and went out for the day!

So i started off with Paper Cellar craft block in lovely pastel hues

I then embossed  pearlescent  card and distressed the risen areas with Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink pad. I then mounted summer breeze digi onto a slightly bigger scalloped blue oval.
I distressed a lovely die cut with hearts in it an i don't have a clue who made it but its lovely and i use it alot. I put a small foam pad either end and created a curve so it bows outwards a little...i did the same with the happy birthday ticket.

I then added a selection of paper flowers to the top left hand corner and either side of the ticket
and then used Baby blue Liquid Pearl around the edge of the scalloped design.
Behind the lovely hear die cut is a very gauzy ribbon with a silver trim through the middle.

Now i used some of the Promarker pens that are way out of my comfort zone a) because i am a Copic girl and ) i don't have many of them!

The colours i used were:
Hair -  Cinnamon,Caramel and Sandstone
Skin - Blush and Dusky Pink
Dress -  Artic Blue, Sky Blue and Duck Egg
Hair band -  Rose Pink and Dusky Rose

Well i hope you like my creation this week and i look forward to seeing again soon!
