18th Girly Birthday card using Oxide Inks (Crafts & Me / Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

My daughter's friend just turned 18 so my daughter requested I make her a special card. Zoe's a gorgeous redhead but she loves her tanning creams so her skin is a similar colour to her hair. I coloured her skin with my usual Copic skin colours and then went over it with Y21 or Y23 (I can't quite remember). Although it seems like a strange colour combo I used the same colours for her card last year and they're both a couple of my favourite cards I've created. I've added last years card below the new one so you can see they're similar but different.

I made the background using some distress inks and water. I black glitter embossed the chipboard clock face, letters and numbers. 

You can find the beautiful image at Crafts and Me.
