Isn't she lovely, isn't she wonderful...

My entry for the Copic Creations challenge no 4, Blonde Hair.
Copics used - Y00, Y21, YR31, E31.

Go on, sing along to the title...

At last a bit of crafting time and I've finally made a card this week!

I love this Tilda, she's just so cute. I made the mistake of colouring her before I'd chosen paper to make the card though - finding something to match took ages. In the interests of 'using up the stash' I used some HOTP papers (stripe and pale green) along with the scalloped polka dot paper I had left over from the acrylic album.

I turned to the trusty Diamond Glaze to highlight the raindrops and the puddle, and for once it flowed out straight away because last time I used it I remembered to rinse out the nozzle (I usually spend several minutes cursing the nozzles as I unbung them!)

I ordered quite a lot of craft stuff this week because I was

1. fed up with my son, and

2. fed up with having increased my hours at work

3. reasoning that increased hours at work this = more spending money

So, most of my stuff has arrived, except for the stuff from 'create and craft' (which incidentally had the highest postage charges, hmmph!).

Amongst other things, I ordered a couple of Tildas and various objects/backgrounds to make little scenes. Oooh they're very cute, wait til you see them!
