TYI week 40 lets go stripey! and Penny black saturday

(This post has been ammended to add on penny black post)
This weeks challenge over at TYI is lets go stripey, use stripes on your tag..........

so heres my entry.

I used Basic Grey sultry'fashionable' paper which arrived yesterday and even better it was on sale lol !! at the The Glitter Pot (they have a fab sale on) and a Sarah Kay image which i coloured using my wc pencils the ribon is from Hobby Craft and the flowers are prima i didnt have a red brad so i coloured an orange one with a cherry peel off pen.

Sentiment is computer generated......


bit of faux stitching round the edges with a dark green sakura stardust....

heres the image a little closer....


Tried to give her Auburn hair but i'm not sure you can tell!

The chalenge for Penny Black SaturdayChallenge was to use pink and brown and it could be anything you like atc, altered item etc...I chose to make a book mark for my mum as she hasn't had the best time over christmas due to i'll health and unfortunately she also used to work at woolworths! .....


The papers are basic grey baby powder 'hiccups' and the ribon is Hobby craft, I coloured my image with pro-markers and highlighted with sakura stardust......

Thanks for taking the time to visit x
