Hannahs "Work In Progress" Hangout!

Good Morning everyone!!! Newbie here saying a big hello to you today on this fabulous Saturday morning! Double celebration for me...So very happy to be joining you today and also my Birthday! 

Today I chose the school theme and made a door sign!  This was made using the gorgeous digi by Heather Valentin called Hannah

Printed on Rymans white glossy paper I used promarker colours :
Rose Pink, Hearthstone, Vanilla, Sleigh Bell, Fresh Blossom, Pale Pink, April shower, Peony, Coral and caramel

Here is a close up version of the finished coloured image..isn't she adorable! Gorgeous and very cool! Using an mdf pre cut hanger I inked over it with the promarker rose pink and added some gorgeous papers by Hazy Days. The punch that I used was a Martha Stewart. Buttons etc were from my stash.  
To add a finishing touch I distressed round the outside of the finished piece with Victorian Velvet distress ink and give a liberal spray of gold glitter by crafters companion.  "Work In Progress" was then complete.
  Check out my blog for more inspiration!
Vibrant, zingy and modern! Hope you like my first piece!
Until next time
Love mich

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
