Blackcurrent Love

Hi All,

Finally got into my loft and got a little more crafting done. I coloured up this tiddly inks image a few weeks ago. I have totally changed the way I craft, I used to always choose a DP then colour to match. Now that colouring has become an obsession I just colour away as the notion takes me and then every so often have a wee session in the loft where I try and make something with my little pile of images ..... yes it does take longer as I have to hunt around for paper that matches, on the upside I am re-discovering paper that I have had in my stash for ages like I did here I found this DCWV paper pad "Black Current" .... considering the match wasn't planed I am really happy with how it turned out. The die's are new to my collection "spellbinders/heartfelt creation - romantic garden" ... It also has matching stamps, so I stamped and embossed the bleeding hearts and the message.

Copic's I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04 - R20 (blush)
Hair (girl) - E49, E79, E77, E71, RV34
Hair (boy) - W9, W5, W3,W1
Dress - W9, RV99, RV69, RV34, RV06, RV02, RV000
Coat - W9, W5, W3, W1
Trousers/Scarf - BV29, BV25, BV23, B60

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Clear it Out - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tue - 3 or more papers ( 4 papers from DCWV Blackcurrent stack )
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin - To Die for ( bleeding heart detail & setiment have been stamped )
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
613 Av Create - Anything Goes

As always thanks for looking
