Shabby "No Bite" Saturated Canary Card
Hello Everyone, Its been super sunny here today (UK), luckily I made this card yesterday evening, so I was able to pop outside and do a little gardening, well tidying my garden up hee hee!
I have used my favourite colour scheme which is blue and brown, they really do go well together, but for a change I added a little green border around the cute image, to co-ordinate with the green in the country cottage papers. I love this design from Whimsy, so much so, that I have used it both inside and on the front of the card too.
Of course this beautiful image is by the super talented Krista Smith and is called "No Bite", I think its a really pretty shabby girly image, so was perfect for this card.
I have coloured the image with copics, distressed some colour core card and used white paint to distress almost everything else! I used mainly frost blue, aqua blue and aqua for the blues and C1, C2, C3 and C5 for highlighting the dark areas and for her tights and finally Tan, Y28, E31 and E35 for the beiges and browns.
The florals are from the lovely ladies at Live and Love Crafts and The Ribbon Girl, who have just sent me a £10 gift voucher, as I was the random winner this week at Lovely Hanglar and Sweet Magnolia! I was super thrilled, as I have'nt won anything before, either random or not hee!!!
I have distressed the so wrapped up Kraft card sentiment and stitched lace, shabby seam binding and pearls into place and a lovely little brass charm. The wording is a little faint, so it reads "Let your light shine through" and is from LOTV.

Enjoy the rest of the sunshine where ever you are.
