Sophies Dress

Hi everyone...hope you all had a lovely weekend.
First of all, I would like to thank and welcome my new followers.
I'm thrilled to have been chosen in the top three again at CR84FN with this card  here.

Today I have a birthday card for my lovely niece, Sophie.  She is very girlie and I thought this little dress suited her style so well.
The image is by Impression Obsession.  I coloured using water colours then added glossy accents for the buttons and to emphasise the flower spray on the dress. To embellish, I used Spellbinders Edgeabilities on white card stock and pink vellum, then added a pretty bow and a tiny flower button.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...
Sugar Creek Hollow - Die Cuts or Punches
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes

Thank you stopping by xx

Chris said...

An absolutely beautiful and elegant card Sacha and girly too, your niece is a very lucky girl :). I love your delicate colouring and all the wonderful details too.

You asked a question on my blog about what I use to colour and on the card you commented on it was a mixture of distress inks, distress ink markers, water colour crayons and water colour markers.... a bit of a mixture :D but often I will just use distress re-inkers.
Hugs,
Chris :)
