Lovely Lulabelle


Meet the lovely Lulabelle, a new release image from Digistamp Boutique - isn't she fabulous?!  I've been itching to make something with her, even though there's loads of other stuff I should really be getting on with!  I also wanted to have a go at the colour challenge at Crafty Catz, as it's Linds' colour choice this week - choc & green... not a natural one for me, although I've used it on male cards I think... however, Linds is fab at putting colours together that you wouldn't normally think would work, so if she says it'll also work on girly cards I'm inclined to believe her :o)

I've coloured the image with promarkers, with shading and glow using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  The paper is K&Co Brenda Pinnick... from the girl pad I think, with coredinations cardstock.  The flowers were cut with x-cut punches, with flat back pearl centres.  Sentiment is from the girly stamp sheet from LOTV.  Super simple card... as usual I tried, really tried, to follow various sketches, but this is what happened instead!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
**Don't forget, any cards that you make using any Digistamp Boutique image can be entered in the monthly competition to win some lovely images**

That's a really lovely image - perfect for a girly birthday. It's a great colour combination too - not one I would normally use either but it looks really good.
