All back from holiday !!

Hi everyone hope you are all well. This is Tina one of Crafty urchins DT team. Sorry there has not been anything new on the blog recently but both myself and Sue have been sunning ourselves (very stressful) on our hols. So we are slowly getting back to normal and i have two cards to show you.

For this card i used Whiff of Joy stamp Pen pal then die cut with Nellie's multi frame.

The papers i used are from Foundations they are double sided and come in 7 colours.

I used a Xcut hearts corner punch and Marianne design flourish.

The sentiment i used is a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket.

I also used Tim Holtz distress ink in Wild Honey around edges of papers to give definition.

I used my beloved Pro markers to colour the image, i used the following shades.

Skin: Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink for her cheeks.

Hair: Caramel, Cinnamon, Cocoa and Shale.

Top and Hair band and jewellery: Peach, Ginger and Coral.

Trousers: Tan, Caramel, ginger and cinnamon.

Letter: Ivory and Satin.

Flowers and petals in Hair: Leaf Green, Rose pink ( looks lilac in picture, i think it is the Stickles over the top).

I used pale grey 1 all around image for impact.

A touch of stardust Stickles for a bit of bling.
I had stamped the image onto white card but decided it needed to be cream, so i coloured around the image with a ivory pro marker which worked really well.The side view below should have been at the end but i made a boo boo, so pretend it is!

The flower embellishment below is made from EK success large Retro Punch ( three layers). The last layer is a medium Mcgill Retro punch. The edges are sponged with distress ink.
The pink pearl button is from my stash.

As mentioned earlier here is the other card i'v made for you to look at.

For this card i used the gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp Daisy isnt she so cute!!
The papers i used are DCVW stack and Wild Rose polka dots.

The image was cut out with a spellbinders die, labels one.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

The loopy ribbon is from my stash.

On the edges of papers and image i have used Tim Holtz distress ink spun sugar.
As usual i have coloured the image with pro makers in the following shades.

Skin: Blush, Pastel pink and Sun kissed Pink.

Hair: Tan, caramel and Cocoa.

Top: Cerise, Antique Pink and Sun kissed Pink.

Jeans: Pearl Blue, Denim Blue and China Blue.

Grass,leafs and flowers in hair: Mint Green Leaf Green, Pale Pink and Rose Pink.

Pale grey1 was used around image for definition.

I used a white gel pen for highlights.

I have used the EK Success large Retro punch for the first layer of my flower,then i used Mcgill Star flower for next layer, Mcgill medium Retro Punch for next layer, the last layer is a Mcgill small Retro punch.

Thanks for looking i hope enjoyed the cards, back soon Tina.......xx
