Especially for you easel card

Hi and thanks for checking out my card today.

I had such fun colouring this gorgeous digi from Crafts & Me, the artist is Hannah Lynn and she has the most amazing images especially if you love colouring hair. I used copic markers, 4 different coloured browns for her hair and didn't blend the colours as much as I usually do for a more streaky effect. Scroll down for a close-up image.

The oh-so-divine vine is from Flourish with a Bling and so are the olive green pearls. We have lots of beautiful cardmaking and scrapbooking products all designed by myself and 2 of my best friends (also my business partners) so I hope you'll go check out our website, we sell worldwide and if you mention you came from my blog in your order "comments" section we'll send you a free Jasmine laser flourish with your order!

Flourish with a Bling are now a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here.
