Saturated Canary 'Bella'

Good morning everyone,
I hope you are all having a lovely week so far!
I am sorry I haven’t posted for a while, but even though school has broken up (yippee) I do a big clean this time of the year and every inch of house gets cleaned for top to bottom, including the paintwork, so I have been busy getting that done and out of the way! I am making good progress, but not finished yet (I know I’m mad)!  Phil and I are also going on holiday on Sunday so I am making sure all my DT cards are done. When we get back George will be home for this two weeks R & R, I can’t believe he has been out in Afghanistan now for over 3 months; and can’t wait to see him. I will stop rambling now and get on with sharing my card (lol)!

For a change I made a square card and used a gorgeous Saturated Canary stamp called ‘Bella’. It took me a while to colour her up, but she is so worth it. As always I have used Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour her with. The papers are from Raspberry Road  and the lush ribbon is from the Ribbon Girls. The corner dies, which I have added some Frantage to are Nellie Snedden and the Catalina border is a Memory Box die. Everything else is from my crafty stash.

 Copics I used:
Skin: E11, 21, 51, 50, 93
Hair: E57, 55, 53, 51, 50
Top & Socks, Bag & Skates: R85, 83, 81, RV000
Skirt, Socks, Bag & Skates: E43, 42, 41, 40
Pencils: Dark Umber, Tuscan Red, Burnt Ochre, Black
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me and for your lovely comments you leave me, I really appreciate them.
