Delovely Aashi

Don't you think this image from Mo Manning is fabulous, she was one of the three downloads I brought to check out the printer. I was kicking myself while colouring there is a band on the material for her sari and each time, I accidently coloured it in the same colour when I wanted to give the band a different colour. I know I could have just printed out some more but I thought I would just do it again.
I tried to colour her complexion darker but I don't think I quite managed it. I thought the Delovely pad from Cosmo Cricket was perfect for her and then I discovered that Wild Orchid Crafts have a challenge blog and that the first challenge is for say it with flowers.
Well who needs a reason to go OTT on flowers and maybe I should of put the flower down and stepped away from the card but I couldn't stop myself. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid craft and so is the pearl sprays too, the shabby ones I've inked to help them contrast to the papers.
Yesterday went very well and the sun came out for a while too, the wake was at Sis and she did a fab job  and Nannette was a star with making the tea and washing up.

  5. Hi, Debbie. What a wonderful card. It's so brightly coloured! I've realized that you almost always cut your images and give them a great rilief. Is it what they call papertole or what?. I'm happy you had a great day yesterday. Hugs. Miria
