Copics, Paint, Embellishments ... all add colour

Sorry about my lack of posting ... our internet has run out and so doing anything on the computer is very slow!  Yes my lovely Husband did sign us up for more downloads so that I could happily blog and have fun ... but he has also been 'having fun' watching You Tube .... so that means that our internet thingys (I have no idea what they are called) got used up very quickly.

Tonight I have for you a very sweet little card I have made for my Niece's birthday on the weekend.  I have used one of my new Tiddly Inks images called Lilli Claire's Lillies.  She is so sweet.

I coloured her last night and so I can't remember what colour copics I used sorry ..... but I can tell you that the doily in the background I painted using an Adrirondakck Acrylic Paint Dabber in Pool (the colour that is .. I don't think I'm clever enough to paint whilst in the pool).

I had also painted a matching chipborad tag ... but just couldn't fit it on the card so I will save that for another day.

I coloured the bottom flower with copics and left the top one plain, added some ribbon and bling and done.  I'm still nicely asking the Husband for some circle cutting dies so I don't have to cut things by hand ... so far my pleas and puppy dog eyes are not working ... but I will persist :)

Anyway here is my card ...... I'm going to enter it into the current challenge over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog ... #67 Paint-It-Up

Porbably won't be back for a few nights .... so frustrating with this slow internet ... I'll miss you fellow Bloggers ... but I'll be back :)
