Stitchy bear and Penny Black with team battle!!

Hi there hope your having a great day ?

Through The Purple  Haze Challenges

This week we have the two teams in a heads off. I have been feeling unwell the last few days so its a miracle that this post and the challenge post was done!

Okey dokey i have a lovely Stitchy Bear Digi by Stitchy bear called China Doll

 We have a sketch challenge here at Through the Purple Haze Challenges!

I coloured China Doll in with the following copics:

Hair C9,7,5,3,2
Dress RV 19,17,14,13/RV 95,93,91/YR 27,24
Skin E0000, 000, 00 and R02 for cheeks

I loved colouring the image she is gorgeous but this is my first sketch and i didn't enjoy it ....could just be that i have flu like symptoms and and can not concentrate as well as i must try to do a few more sketches in future.

I used distress in spun sugar round the edges of the nestability wavy rectangles just to break up the white of the edges.
I backed the card a First Edition  8 x 8 pad called Rose Garden then i added the ribbons and then the dove craft accordion flowers flowers and MIC dragonflies trying to keep it oriental.....imagine my shock that i get an oriental image and didnt have anything that i really thought suitable in my stash...aaaahhhh!

Any way not my greatest project but at least i bit the bullet!

Many thanks for looking

  5. Stunning Anita - very Oriental, pretty and delicate. Actually, it wasn't until I read your ingredient that I realized that you had use accordian flowers as I thought they were Japanese Fans.
