Elven Samaneh + CANDY TIME


Hi everyone! It's Alyce here and I have some exciting news to share with you! I know some of you know this already buuuuutt....I made it on to the Make It Crafty Design Team! OMG! :O WOOOO!!!

Here I am today with my first project to share! For my card I have used the absoltuely stunning Elven Samenah. How amazing is her hair and beautiful wings?

I have used some beautiful Jessica Sprague papers, some wild orchid flowers, and layered up some oval dies. I really like to add texture to my cards to I added some cheesecloth, lace, and jute mesh. To add some more depth, I added in a delicate corner and a butterfly chippy, which I inked using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain, and then diamond glazed to create a shiny effect.
I have coloured up Samaneh using copic markers on the Make It Crafty Blending Card and wanted to go for a really soft pastel tone fading out to white. This is a little different for me as I generally tend to colour with really bright tones but I am really happy with the result. 

Here are the copic colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E00, E53, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29, E15
Dress/Wings: Purple V000, V01, RV95, V93, G94 (Shading) Yellow Y000, Y21, Y28

                                   
And now to celebrate!! I know I have had lots of exciting announcements this week and to celebrate I want to offer some CANDY! Here's what I have up for grabs:
