Tiddly Inks Fabulous Friday!

Good afternoon!  I nearly forgot that it is Fab Friday today at Tiddly Inks!  We are showcasing some gorgeous cards from the wonderful Tiddly Inks design team over at the challenge blog... head on over and check them out!  Also you still have time to get your project in for our Pretty in Pink challenge... enter your Tiddly Inks pink creation HERE.

I decided to use Be Bold, Be You! Ballerina for my card today... 

Isn't she gorgeous?!  This is the first time I have actually gotten around to colouring her up, and she was lots of fun to colour!  I added Stickles to her mask and distressed the edges of the image with Distress Inks.  The papers are mainly scraps and the blue one is from CloseOut Girl on Etsy.  The sentiment comes with this gorgeous girl.

I do love how the image turned out, but I'm not happy with this card in general... I think maybe I used too much blue in the background.  I should have swapped the colour pallette around a little methinks.  Anywho... live and learn!

I followed this weeks' sketch at Feeling Sketchy which is actually a layout, but they said we could do a card instead if we wanted.

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Feeling Sketchy: Week 13 sketch
Charisma Cardz: Anything Goes

That's all from me for now!

stunning card Arabella. I love how you have coloured the ballerina, especially the detailing on her dress. The bold colours look wonderful and the swirls of gems and pearls finish it off perfectly
I hope you have a great weekend

Hi Arabella, I always seem to be saying sorry for being hit and miss with commenting right now - won't get any better over the coming school holidays either!

As always gorgeous cards, perfect colouring and your paper choices are just stunning.

If you don't see me around much, just imagine the most inane waffly nonsense you can and you'll have me to a T!!

Hope you are having a good weekend and will try to pop back soon.
