Ballgown Ella

Hi everyone,

Hope you have all had a good week, and if you are in the U.K., I hope you are tucked up nice and warm in your craft room away from the icy winds. It has been a busy week for me, we are currently looking after Kyra whilst George has taken his girlfriend away for a mini break to Venice, on top of that our new bedroom furniture arrived yesterday, which needs assembling and with an 8 month puppy around, it is proving rather tricky. I don't think I will get much crafting done this weekend.

Away enough waffling, this morning, I am sharing my GDT card for the Paper Nest Dolls. This beautiful image can found here.

I coloured her using copics and prisma pencils and she was an absolute joy to colour. Peeking out from the top left is a Noor Design  Sending Love Heart, which has been cut twice and placed on top of each other, you may have noticed, but I'm quite into this affect at the moment and you can just make out the wings on top of the heart, which has been covered with pink frantage. Peeping out from the right is another of the Sending Love Heart die. Around the image is some pink pearls and I've hung a couple of strings at the bottom of the card.

Underneath the flowers are a couple of branch dies, also by Noor, but not currently in Tracy's shop although she will be able to get the die for you, if you wish. The tag on the base of the card is also a Noor Design die. The ribbon and lace are from the Ribbon Girl

Copics list:
Skin: E11, 21, 00, 000, 0000, R21
Hair: E44, 42, 40, W00
Dress/Hairband: C6, 5, 3, 1, 0, 00

Pencils: 70% Cool Grey, Dark Brown, Burnt Ochre, Black.

Take care.
