Analinda + Crafts and Me GDT

Hi everyone! It's my last post as a guest designer over at Crafts and Me :( So much fun playing along and using their lovely images. This week the challenge theme is a nice and easy one; Butterflies and Bows. You can use any image, but I have used the gorgeous Analinda. Wowee she is beautiful and probably one of my favourite images to colour up! I love her log LOL

OK now please don't laugh at my poor bow!!! I did this lovely double bow (took me FOREVER) but the next day I had to race home from work to photograph while it was still light and the bow had just died!! I don't know why but I forgot to fix it and then it was too late D: hehehe. I am hoping that you all look at lovely Analinda and not at anything else HAHA!! (Except for the GORGEOUS butterfly flourish from Make it Crafty :)

Here is some more Analinda for you lol. Really happy with the log and even tried to get some reflection happening in that water! :D

Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E00, E53, E11, R11
Hair: E31, E35, E37
Dress: R11, R20, R22, R29
Wings: R11, R20
Log: E31, E35, E13, Blender

Challenges that I am entering with this card:
Crazy Amigos - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Shabby Chic/Vintage
Paper Makeup Stamps - Tic Tac Toe (I have used Fairy, Flowers (on my dp!) and sparkle!)
Divas by Design - Anything Goes

Can't wait to see all of your lovely creations for this challenge :)
