Fancy Frills at Graph'It Colouring Challenge

Good morning folks, I don't know about making cards I think we should be building an arc as it's been raining all week. We're forecast for some better weather over the weekend though so fingers crossed. We've got a new challenge starting at Graph'It Colouring challenge and this time our theme is 'Fancy Frills' so a good excuse to make a pretty girly card to be in with a chance of winning gorgeous Graph'It goodies from Premium Craft Brands I've coloured this beautiful image which I was lucky enough to win a couple of weeks ago, she's from Delicious Doodles and is printed on Ultimate Graphic 160gsm card. Finding the perfect colouring card is a bit of a nightmare but this stuff is by far the best I've tried, love it (you can find it here)

I've used backing paper from Tim Holtz, distressed with a craft knife and a little Walnut Stain distress ink I used red line tape and cosmic shimmer glue to create my ribbon and lace frills and then added some pretty pearly trim to make sure nothing falls off lol. 

The image is coloured with my Graph'It markers, you can find a full list of colours over on the Challenge blog. I've also used my White Graph'It shake pen to create the polka dots on her top.

I've gone to town with embellishments, adding flowers, acetate butterflies, beaded pins, button and bow, faux pearls and even a little butterfly peg.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: Things with wings
Created with Love: lots of layers
In the pink: shabby chic/vintage
Try it on Tuesday: Feminine and Fancy
Whoopsi Daisy: lots of layers

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
