A Little Note of Thanks

Hi All,

This is a little thank you card I have made for my sisters, using a My Besties image .... I have loved these images forever, however I have only just got round to purchasing some in the last few months, I really enjoyed having a play with this one.

I have coloured this one using my trusty copics.

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Lips - R89, R29, R20
Hair - E29, E25, E21, R22, R20
Dress&Shoes G85, YG09, YG07, YG05, YG00, Y000
Socks&Bow C7, R89, R85, R83, R81
Flowers- C5, RV29, RV23, RV21 Centers - E15, Y17, Y14, Y02

I tried adding a watercolour background, however I wasn't thrilled with how it turned out so I added a a little Picket Fence distress ink, and added some stamping round the edges with my trusty Kanban Flourish stamp.

I have teamed it up with some papers from Bo Bunny - A gift of love
The sentiment is paper expressions
and I have added some Anita's Dimensional stickers ( not really my style now .... I think die cuts have moved us all away from using stickers, but I really need to to use up some of my HUGE stash!! )
