Lacy Sunshine Butterfly girl

Well the colouring practise continues, really trying to add depth to hair and hopefully on this card I've not done too bad. Got to work with a fab image from Lacy Sunshine this week for the TTPH challenge and I'm sure when they gave me the image, they must have known I needed to work on hair colouring, BIG hair is not the word! It took about 2 hours to colour and then I cut the wings out of another copy of the image and used Crafters Companion Glitter spray, though you can't really see it in the picture.

I also received some new papers this week from Craftwork Cards. I love the soft colour palette they've used in the Cottage Garden paper pad, takes me back to my favourite style......Vintage!
Check out the TTPH blog to get inspiration from the rest of the DT.
