Happy Australia Day and My First Six Fold Card using Lizzie Finger Painting and Sammi's Australia Day giveaway

G'day all and HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY for those of you in OZ!  So pleased it isn't has hot as Mon/Tues lol!

Hope you are all well, DH is at work but hoping finish earlier so we can have a BBQ and play some family games etc.  We will wait and see lol!

Saw this tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers and just had to give it a try.

I have used the super cute 'Lizzie Finger Painting' from Inky Impressions and coloured her using V20, V25, BV21 and C01. 

This is the card opened up

Added another Purple Lizzie lol!  And a couple of sentiments, kept it fairly plain as the paper is beautiful and sparkly.  Added glossy accents to the eyes and paint.

sentiments from an SU set

Copics, multiliner (to darken the eyes) and spicas (pink, Silver and Clear)

all the above are available from The Mad for Markers Store along with the Xpress It double sided tape and foam mount tape, don't forget you still have a few days to enter our New Colour Combo Challenge this month.
