victorian Octavia Melancholy

good morning to you all Caroline here with you today. i thought i would share with you today Octavia, she is such a little darling and was a pleasure to color. I wanted to keep the whole feel summery even though the weather here in the north east of the uk has turned quiet chilly, defiantly autumn weather.
I have used  my graphit markers  to color her in
skin 4175, 4155, 4145, 4120
hair1250, 1150, 1130, 1110
dress, flowers and feather 5130, 5120,5110
coat 3250, 3245 and 3210
I used little tiny gems on her hat and in her hair and a couple on her dress.
I have used backing  paper from a vintage/travel scrapbook pad by crelando which i bought in lidle, The car was also on the page which i cut out to use on the front of the card.
I used used nestabilities gold majestic circles to build up the back layers but cut them out on a rectangle rectangle piece of backing paper.
The lace i bought in dainty supplies.
The ribbon and lillies came from wild orchid crafts, the stick pin and the gold fan were bits i picked up out and about on my travels but think they were from do crafts.
Thats me signing off again, hope to see you all again soon

To colour the image I use Distress Ink:
for face & skin: tattered rose (with a bit of vintage photo) & worn lipstick for lips n blush on
for hair: wild honey
red colour: barn door
green colour: peeled paint & mowed lawn
brown colour: vintage photo & tea dye (+a bit of black soot for the bag)

then put some shabby blue embossing enamels from Stampendous along the edge..

And here's the drawer :D
