Double Take - Krista Smith/Saturated Canary

Hi all and I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Mine was not too bad.  Went shopping yesterday as per usual and today has been a lounging day flitting between the laptop and my crafty table.  Oh and the odd cup of caffeine.  I had a visit from a couple of friends too so that was nice.  Been a while since seeing them so all was cool.

Today I am posting a card I made today and it is one of Krista's new images - Double take. Isn't she gorgeous.  Well I think so lol.  I colured her using copics and prismas as usual. I edged her frame using distress ink as inside.  The papers are from Raspberry Road,  I coloured the Roses and butterfly with pale coloured copics on the grey background and covered them with glossy accents to give the backing more depth.  The flowers are from WOC.  The pearls, glass looking stems and lace are from my stash.  .The bow I made myself and the leaves were from a spellbinder die. The sentiment I created in word on laptop.

Well that is it for me today and I hope you enjoyed your visit.  I have a huge project on the go at the moment and I think I may well surpass myself if it comes good.  If it doesn't come good you will not be seeing it LOL.  I am making it for my first challenge post for the OUTLWAZ in a couple of weeks.  I also have 3 commissions to get on with so you will probably seeing those quite soon.  If you wonder where I am I will be the one struggling for the light beneath my stash in the corner of my living room LOL.  

Anyway see you soon and be good.  Hugz Elaine xxx
