Good morning! I'm back with my second Tiddly Inks card to share with you this week! Did you meet the new Wryn-Beach Babe yesterday? Isn't she gorgeous?! Christy is bringing out new images so fast I can barely keep up!
This one is using Wryn - Joy Ride... she was released a few weeks ago, but I didn't get a chance to colour her up straight away. The instant I saw her I thought she would be perfect for a summer holiday card...
How cute is she?! I really wanted to use some purple again as I feel the purples are some of my least used colours and yet I love the colour purple. I also had some fab purple blings (by Prima) and buttons (by Doodlebug) to use, so I coloured the card in a shade of purple to match those.
The papers are a mixture from my stash. The green one is from Crate Paper, the other two I'm not sure about. The tree is wooden (maybe balsa wood???) from a local craft shop here and I cut the 'sun' using my Slice machine. The charm is from my stash. I added Glossy accents to the windows of the car and to the hub caps. I wrote (in tiny lettering) on Wryn's luggage labels... hard to read, but one says 'Holiday' and the other 'Road Trip'. I also added Stickles to the car's headlight. The two stickers are from October Afternoon.
Here are the copics I used:
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

That's nearly it from me today! We were planning to take the boat out for a spin today and getting in the water (not me... I'm not a big fan of baring my non-bikini body, although I have lost weight recently... I'm down to 2kg heavier than when we my husband and I got married 9 years ago and 4kg heavier than when we met... so 5kg to go to get to a happy place) to clean the jets and hull, but it has turned out to be quite a bit windier than expected and it wouldn't be very pleasant at all, so maybe tomorrow.
Ooh and in other news, my lovely husband has agreed to let me purchase the remaining copics on my list so that I can almost complete my collection! It's a belated birthday prezzie... he made it a good one since he forgot my birthday on the day (in his defence he was super busy and stressed at work at the time). I decided that I don't need the fluorescent ones just now and also some of the greys, but I might get them in the future. I can't wait for them all to arrive!
Which reminds me... I have a handful of copic original markers and one or two sketch markers that I purchased accidentally (double ups) that I don't need anymore. I started my collection with copic originals, but switched to the Sketch markers pretty early on. Would anyone be interested in taking them off my hands? I'll update this post with a picture when I get home tonight. I think they are mostly browns and blues.
