Zoe Celebrates Easel Card

Hi all, having a wettish weekend here, housework is done, so finally had time play and have another go at colouring a scene using Copics.  I have used the gorgeous image 'Zoe Celebrates' available from Make It Crafty.  I borrowed Morgan's jeans from the ironing pile and added some colourless blender and pressed on the jeans of the image to get a denim effect, also used an old pair of Rosanna's PJ's with the colourless blender and pressed in various places on the sky. 

Did have trouble with the grass couldn't make my mind up what colour looked best so there is a little bit of everything in there lol!  Now DH says it is all too bright but I kinda like it.  Decided she looks very happy, like she has just won the races (Melbourne cup here in Oz this weekend). 

The flowers are hand drawn using multiliners 0.3 green and 0.1 black.

The Happy Birthday chip board was sprayed with copics then clear spica added and then special effects.

The butterflies are from my MS border punch (these are the bits that should be thrown away but I am a hoarder lol) and then added liquid pearls for the body.  The rhinestones (bottom of the tulips) have been coloured using copic YG09.

The flower has been handmade using organza ribbon (think thats what you call it) with a rhinestone brad centre.

Papers Kaisercraft La-Di-Da and SU cardstock.   The cute tortoise ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
