Lady of Opal

Hi there, well summer looks to have arrived as its a lovely sunny morning for a change, shame i've got to go to work . Anyway, todays card features a 'Lady of Opal' by Sarah Burrier from Crafts and Me. Between printer problems and a sore neck its been ages since I coloured a digi stamp  so I really enjoyed making this card. Colouring is soooooo relaxing isn't it?

The image is coloured with promarkers and layerd up one some Vintage shabby paper with a bit of lace and velvet ribbon. I've added some paper flowers and made some faux pearl swirls with a viva pearl pen. I coloured the little roses with blue ink but for some reason they look green in the pic. You can see the image a bit better in this pic:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: Pearls and roses
Digi Makeover: Things with wings
Papercrafting Journey: Hand coloured image
Paper Shelter: anything goes

Thanks for popping by today, hope you're getting some sunshine too
