Lilac and green

Finally a card!!

I was very intrigued by the "Lilac and Green" colour combo over at The Ribbon Girl that I thought I needed to have a try.

Its Milly's first inking - naughty me!!
I'm not sure what the technique is called when you have a bit of the image sticking out from the shape you have cut but I think it works well with the butterfly which is slightly decoupaged.

I know Iv used this same layout on two previous cards but I just cant help it! I love it too much and the whole slight CAS thing goes with the shape of the card blank!

Anyway this is what I have used:
  • Craftwork Card s Elegant card blank
  • LOTV Milly with Flower stamp
  • Label Nesties
  • Promarkers - Lilac, Meadow Green, Blush and Pastel Pink for skin, Caramel hair, FM - Pink Pearl (I think!)
  • TRG - seam binding coloured with Apple PM
  • Dew Drop Gems
  • WOC cherry blossoms spritzed with Perfect Pearls

LOTV - Bingo (Diagonal - Gem, Flowers and Ribbon)

Hope you are all well!
Back to the dissertation proposal writing I suppose. Sorry for the lack of commenting guys pretty busy at the mo!
