A little Fairy Dust..

Evening all,

After a busy weekend going here, there and everywhere I finally found a little time to sit and colour a card with one of my new Tilda’s that arrived today!

Whilst cleaning out my cabinets last week I found a bunch of tag art stamps, can’t for the life of me remember who they are by only that I bought them from Ebay a long time ago and they came in large sheet form.As I wanted a sitting Tilda I choose ‘Fairy Dust’, isn’t she pretty blowing the wishes along?

I have used the sketch provided by Carole for the FRIDAY SKETCHERS challenge, sure had fun with it.. thanks for sharing sweetie!!

Papers and die-cuts were found in my ‘scraps’ folder, they were left overs from last years Scrapagogo retreat. MS border punch, ribbon and some liquid pearls to add some finishing touches.

I don’t know if you are the same.. but when colouring hair I tend to go the same colour as that is what I’m most comfortable with and find myself struggling with black or red hair.. so I spend what little time I had in the weekend experimenting with more hair colours and made a reference chart to go at the back of my updated copic colour chart 🙂

They are now laminated back to back, fab little chart to have to hand… I think 😉

I leave you with a gorgeous little card Laurelle made today.. She was a busy little bee colouring and finding bits to go with her image.. She even thought of doing the gate-fold herself as she said that she liked the one I did a little while ago… bless!

    Thanks so much for the fab idea of adding a hair colour chart on the back of the Copic Colour Chart, i too struggle with hair colours so always end up with brown hair hehe, dont even think i have ever coloured blonde hair lol, but thanks again for the fab idea i sooo must do that myself 🙂

    Very nice card, though I do not favour Tildas…The card by Laurelle is really gorgeous, say her my compliments! And thank you so much for the hair-colour chart, I am going to start colouring with copic soon (as soon as they arrive!) and I am shure it will help me a lot.

    This is beautiful Marlene. I love that sweet Tilda. Gorgeous card. And Laurelle has made a beautiful card too, clever girl. I think we all seem to have trouble with hair. Like most people I seem to always do the same colour of hair. Doing a chart is a great idea.
