Something New (for me)

Morning everyone hope you are ok, well the sun did come out to play for a while later on yesterday so fingers crossed for today!

I have made my first card using a Saturated Canary digi image as I always think they look so pretty when other people do them.  I made it with the challenge in mind over at Saturated Canary which is to use a doily although you can't see that much of mine lol!!


Yep its that lace again!!  I have coloured her with my Prisma pencils, I am really enjoying colouring with these at the moment my poor little Copics don't get a look in!!  I have used some Stickles on her wings and petticoat and some Glossy Accents to those gorgeous eyes!!  I have used a Marianne die for the flowers which I edged in Distress Inks and then placed on my new Doohickey die.  The butterfly is also a new Doohickey die (that's why you are seeing him on all my cards at the mo lol).  The papers are First Edition.  The gem trim was from Christine - thank you so much - I have only very frugally used a bit of it!!  I have cut and matted the image using Spellbinders and my doily which you can just see peeking out is from Spellbinders Lacy Doily motifs.  I really enjoyed colouring her and have already done her in a different colour for another card!!  I think you will be seeing more of these lovely images from me!!  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Saturated Canary - Use a Doily
The Pixie Cottage - Perfect Pastels
Crafty Sentiment - Things with Wings
Timeless Tuesday - Lace and Scallops
Crafty Bloggers Network - Floral
Love to Create - About the Ladies

This is lovely Susan. Coloured beautifully. Love all the dies you have used and the soft colours. Just gorgeous.
A quick question for you if okay. I have some prismas but not really used them yet. Do you use and blending medium and if so what do you use as this is coloured beautifully?
