You and Me

22:54:00

Hi everyone! Today I have been asked to be a guest designer over at the Fashionista Blog! Woohoo! :D This one is extra special to me because all of YOU lovely people voted for me to be the first winner! I am so forever grateful and excited to share my card with you today. The challenge theme for this month is Wedding, Anniversary, or Shower with an optional Black, White and One Other Colour. I chose to do the optional because you have to challenge yourself sometimes! And I don't do a lot of black cards so this was fun for me :)


I used one of my favourite Tiddly Inks images: You and Me. It is so romantic! I had fun with this card as I just got the BIGGEST box of flowers from Wild Orchid so I had so much to choose from! And see those gorgeous heart chippies? They are from my buddy Tracy who is the biggest sweetie - thanks so much! :D


The chippies came embossed so to give them a little more definition I lightly rubbed Distress Ink Vintage Photo over the top. I distressed all of my papers by crumpling them and using Distress Ink Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo. I love all of these flowers too! The grey rosebuds are some of my faves and I really like those little crystals nestled in there! :)

So I think I took a little bit of creative license with the pleats on her dress: I think she has just stopped from a really big 'SWISH' lol! If you get what I mean ;) Here are the copic colours that I used to colour them up:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: Girl E11, E13, E15, E18 Boy E21, E25, E29
Dress: R81, R85, R59
Suit: W1, W3, W5, W7

Challenges that I am entering with this card: 

Make It Monday - Linky Party
Cheery Lynn Designs - Bling It Up (I have used a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish, whole heap of pearls and some gorgeous crystal stems :)
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Anything Goes
Lexi Creations - Black, White, Plus One Other Colour
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes
CMC Challenge Group - Anything Goes
CES Challenges - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps - Black, White, and one other colours


I keep having problems with Blogger. Does anyone get an error when they go to leave comments? Sometimes the page just doesn't load for me...it is so frustrating! I am trying my hardest to get around to everyone and a lot of the time I get to see your images but not comment grrr! Hopefully I will be by shortly :) Thank you so much for stopping by :)

  18. Grrrr, yes...blogger has been a royal pain in my backside this week. It was hiding links from me for 2 days and I couldn't comment on anyone's stuff! I threatened a public tantrum and viola, it has returned to play nice..for now.
    CONGRATULATIONS on being #1 winner, but we always knew you were #1. This card is unbelievably yummy! Not in the edible sense, but on the eyes. I would love to sit and watch you color, always so, so pretty!

    Hope you're having a great week Alyce.

  50. WOW!!!!! This card is totally fantastic... Your coloring is just awesome my friend. I love the image from tiddly inks and all the embellishments are perfect. Yes I received your email and I'm not sure if I understand everything but it sure sounds like a great idea. I like the idea that you figured out away to do that all on your own and not have to pay. I'm going to try and see if I can do it not sure if I understand but if I need help I will email you. Thank you so much!!!
    Hugs
