Sugar Nellie - 'In a While'

Morning folks! I am back as promised with a brand new image from Leanne Ellis. I do love these arty designs. It is really nice to do something other than cute.

Thought I do have to admit this card has been on my desk for days. I have had real trouble with getting it to all come together. Even now I am not convinced...but I needed closure ..LOL! I need to get it off my desk and moved on. Mayber it is the colours I picked or something!

The image is called 'In a While' and is coloured with copics. I have used lots of greys for the hair and for the dress. And the ruffle round her neck is from the YR colour group (YROOO, YR21, YR24, E08)

 So the papers I used are from Pink Paislee and then I made the flowers from a tutorial I found here from Mandy. Thank you!! I love making my own flowers when I can.  The film strip ribbon is from Tim Holtz and can be found at Quixotic Paperie.

There are 5 other new Leanne Ellis stamps in this collection which I think are all stunningly beautiful!

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

do you know Judy, I think this would actually be my favourite of your cards. There is something very dramatic about it and I love it

Absolutely breathtaking, Judy! I know we can all feel that there is something not quite right about our own work from time to time but I think you got this bang on,hun! Just LOOOOVE this card to bits! The gorgeous papers are some of my all time faves and are perfect with this gorgeous image. Your colouring is stunning and I love all the embellishments you have picked and the film strip is fab. I think I have one kickin' around in my stash and should really use it!
Had a lovely look around...sorry it has been so long! Lovely to hear from you...thanks for you very sweet comment! I will make a concerted effort to visit more often as your work is such an inspiration!
Big Hugs,t

Stunning Judy! The Orange highlights are just so affective! Kimx

Stunning selective use of orange which really makes the whole so classy. amazing the way the green twirly bits on the flowers echo both the flower in her hair & the frame of the image. The way you've coloured that bodice is so effective - you can feel the velvety texture hugging her little corseted (I presume) body. the film strip gives such a sense of drama too & that flower with the beaded centre is a real stunner. Yesterday's & today's cards are real examples of your versatiliy. Thank you for giving so much in so many ways.
