Rock chick


This is my first card to inspire you to join in this month's LOTV Facebook challenge, Birthday. Nice and easy, so many images to choose from. I always find purples the hardest colours to blend with, whatever pens I have used over the years. I am  pleased with the hat but the skirt could do with improvement. If I am not happy with my colouring I tend to fiddle with it until all the contrast is lost so I made myself step away from it this time.

She is a gorgeous image isn't she, one of the new retro images, Romantic Rock from the 80's. Coloured with Copics and teamed with new MFT papers Dots and Stripes Brights from My Mum's Craft Shop,, lace from Crafty Ribbons, LOTV teenage girl sentiment and roses from Wild Orchid.  I also used a MFT wonky stitched rectangle die and a Woodware leaf punch.

Gorgeous card and great image. It's funny but I always have a problem with purple. With Copics, Promarkers and even Distress Inks! Could be the mix of the colours they use to make the purple colour. Hugs, Carol S.xx
