Victorian Couple + Mini Spools!

16:18:00

                                            **To view my blog candy please click here**  


Hi everyone! Today I want to share a card I made using one of my most fave Tiddlyinks images; Victorian Couple. Actually, I purchased it months ago but was a little scared to colour it! So hope you like it :)


I had a heap of fun with this card...it all seemed to come together nicely and I thank one thing: MINI SPOOLS!!! hehe I picked these up at the show and they are the cutest little things. I wrapped some gold sparkly yarn around them and popped them in amongst my usual cluster of embellies. :D For the sketch I followed one of my fave Sketch Challenge Blogs; CLP.

I coloured up these cuties using my copics and here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: Girl E50, E53, E57, E49 Boy E11, E13, E15, E18
Dress: Blue BG72, BG97, BG99 Yellow Y11, Y15, Y17, E31, E33
Suit: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7
