It was hard to cut up a beautiful image after I coloured it!

Hi there .... Last night I coloured this lovely Tiddly Inks Priscilla image ... and today I chopped her up!  I had actually coloured two as I was going to use a lovely aqua image on this card but sadly I cut the pieces incorrectly and so she had to go to image heaven.  This purple one was destined for another card ... but it was an emergency so I'm sure she will understand why I had to chop her into 1 inch pieces.

Over at Tiddly Inks challenge blog this week they have an Inchies (Challenge #62 Inch My Way Along) challenge so I am going to enter this card over there.  And seeing as this lovely image was supposed to go onto a wedding card I will also enter it in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge #178 Weddings.

So as you can see I have coloured her using the ever faithful Copics in my most used colours of purple!  This time I used BV11, BV13, BV17 and of course some spica pen.  Don't know where I would be without those spica pens.  Although I don't think you can see it in the photo ... it is on the hat band, the frill on her dress and the circles on her bodice.

I embossed some lovely cream card with a Cuttlebug embossing folder of Cogs.  I purchased this folder recently specifically for my Tiddly Inks stamps and I also have some other Steampunk stamps it will mach perfectly with. This is the first time I have used it and I am quite happy with the design.

I have stuck it all down on a black base card as I wanted a crisp look and then added a few purple flowers that match perfectly with the dress ... this is quite by accident, I just got lucky with the colour match :)

Well that will be it from me for now as once again my naughty but adorable little girl is not having a nap so we are off to play outside.  I'll probably be back later on .... fingers crossed.

Happy crafting and blogging xoxoxox

Oooops nearly forgot to put the photo on .... here it is :)
