Deevonne

To view my candy giveaway please click here  - winners will be drawn 6/5/12


Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well...sorry I haven't been around much in the past few days - have not been feeling too good and of course Blogger has been playing up! hehe. I will make sure I come around and visit all of your lovely blogs tonight :) I just want to say the biggest thank you to all of you who voted for me over at the Fashionista Blog. I cannot believe that I won and I am so so thankful :) I really appreciate all of you that stop by and support me.


Today we have a new challenge for you over at Crafts and Me and it is an easy one: Favourite Colour Combo. I have really been pumping out my favourite colour combo a lot lately so I felt kinda bad doing it again but it was a lot of fun! I used the lovely Deevonne digi image. Don't forget you can enter with any image you like - it doesn't have to be Crafts and Me :)



How gorgeous is her hair? I had a lot of fun colouring this up :) I used some of my favourite Michele R digi papers, my fave cheery lynn italian flourish doily, some gorgeous prima flowers, cheesecloth, and corrugated cardboard which I roughly painted white. I made some distressed seam binding by lightly inking it with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, spraying it with water, and crumpling it up until it dried. I also added some cheery lynn lace die cuts, and some pearls. Lots of embellies on this one!


I coloured Deevonne up using my copic markers, and used my favourite hair colour combo to fit in with the challenge. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37
Starfish/Eyes: B00, B01, B05

Can't wait to see what you all create for this challenge and since it is a nice and easy one I expect to see all of you playing along! lol :P

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Paper Sundaes - Ribbon and Pearls (I used some seam binding ribbon and a heap of pearls :)
CR84FN - Pink, Aqua, Neutral
LEJ Designs - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl's - May Flowers
