A Birthday card for a Special Friend!!

Hi all,

This is a card I created for a very good friend of mine.

I wanted to use a Prima doll I colored with Distress Inks sometime back. I wanted to use the colors from the lulupu logo.

Those who are with me would be now knowing my obsession towards Distress inks.. I am not feeling like using any pattern papers and I love to create Backgrounds with distress inks. All my diecuts are cut in white and colored with my favorite inks. Cut the colored image and added some diecuts and my card is done.

Here is the final result:



Entering the card into the following challenges:
1. Imaginations online challenges- Anything goes with Distress inks 
    Doll colored with distress inks - Peeled paint and Evergreen Bough
    Background created with Tumbled glass
    Flowers colored with a mix of Dusty concord and Picked raspberry

    Banners colored with Mustard seed and Picked Raspberry

    Prima Dolls stamped, colored with distress inks, fussy cut and adhered to the card

3. Lulupu challenge - Inspired by new Lulupu logo -Have used the blue in the background and the doll , Yellow and Dark pink in the banner, Orange in the Butterfly

A Tag with Prima Doll -coloring wit distress inks!

Hey all,

Am back with a tag. I loved the Prima dolls at first sight and I colored a few with distress inks. The coloring is a trial and am still learning with practice. I colored the doll picking up inks from the distress ink pads.. Gave a shimmer to the outfit with some glitter pens. I colored them two months back and I never got a chance to work with it. Finally this morning,  found some time to incorporate the image into a tag.

Took a piece of white cardstock, created the background with Spiced Marmalade and a light mustard seed shade. Stamped a flourish border at the bottom, Cut a piece from the Honey comb diecut and added it on the top as an embellishment. Now, I wanted a bold sentiment n the Kaisercraft one matched perfectly. Used the Memory Box stencil to create a sunshine on the left top and added few embellishments and am done with the tag.


Distress ink used - 
Picked Raspberry, Evergreen Bough, Spun sugar(Skin) and Vintage photo to color the doll
Tumbled glass for the sunshine, Gathered twigs to color the honeycomb diecut and Stazon black to stamp.
