A friendship card

Sassy Studio Designs has a progressive relay over at their blog:
http://sassystudiodesigns.blogspot.co.nz/2012/06/sassy-in-city-relay-charlotte-sassy.html

And girls, I'm in my slippers sipping hot chocolate!  If you don't know what that comment refers to then check out the link above!

I thought I was going to have difficulty with this one but somehow when I printed Charlotte out and got out some of my stash, it all came together.  It's a little bit different for me as there is not a patterned paper anywhere!!!


I used the Sassy Studio Designs image - sassy Charlotte who was part of this particular challenge.  I coloured her using copic markers E000 for the skin, G000 for the dress and shoes, YR61 for her hair and RV13 for her lips.  The sentiment that I have used is one from Digital Doodling.

I have cut both the image and sentiment using different sized dies from the small oval set and small scallop oval set from Spellbinders.  The scallop mats have been coloured using G000 to blend with the dress and lace.    The lace is some that I bought recently but the flowers I have had for some time but they matched the lace beautifully.

I must admit that I had trouble leaving white space on the card as I'm not good at that but I have resisted the temptation to fill that area.  I think it looks better with the white space - it's just I have a habit of filling any spaces!

I'm looking forward to seeing what the next image in the relay is and hope that I can manage to upload everything on time.  I have a rather slow internet connection at the moment so I have to have patience (not good at that either!!).
