Use your favourite colours with Delicious Doodles

Hi there and welcome to challenge #25 at 

This week we are sponsored by the lovely 

Delicious Doodles and Di's Digis

I love orietal styles at the moment and was lucky enough to play with Quiet contemplation from Delicious Doodles and also use my favourite colours!

I made an easel card and used my favourite colours of purple/lilac and pink.

First of all i covered both bits of the easel card with Dream catcher  by First Edition and then used gold  and black card to matt and layer and make the image pop.

I then added a lovely gold ribbon and added some white with gold thread tassel ribbon as well.

I added a couple of dragon flies and then atached a lovely handmade fabric flower to the bottom of the easel card to hold it in place when stood up.

I used the following copic colours to colour her in:

Hair C 9, 7, 5
Skin E000, 00, 01, 02
Lips R 32, 37
Dress BV 000, 00, 01
Sash/ hair band BV 02, 04, 08
Gold swirls Y 15, 19
Parasol  B 60, 63

i added gold glitter glue to the ornamentation in her hair and purple glitter glue in her hair band as well and a little glossy accents to her lips for detail

I would like to enter this card into the following competitions:
