Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

So Pretty in Blue

Hello everyone - well it's taken me most of the day to make this card, but do you know what, I'm rather pleased with it!

It's another pretty card from me, well I think so anyway. I've chosen another Saturated Canary image for this card and then I realised it would be good for their latest challenge too, details HERE.

The card -



As you can see she's all blue! Now I'm not a pink kind of girl, well I do like pink, but wouldn't choose to wear it necessarily, but I'd definitely choose blue! I wanted to try this image to see if I could colour the dress with all the folds in the material, so hope I've done it justice. I coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pens.  Another thing I wanted to try was the light brown/blond hair, so again I'm hoping that's okay as well! Once all coloured I die cut the image with a Spellbinders die, leaving the image in the die to ink around, before removing it to reveal the fab white edge.


Those of you who visit me for WOYWW may remember the wire coiling Gizmo I shared the other week, well, I've made use of it to make this embellishment, I added the glass beads and made a hook to hang it onto the lace.


The challenge asks for flowers and as you can see I've used plenty! The card itself is on an A5 Centura Pearl card base, the embossed panel is also Centura Pearl inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  The dark blue card-stock is Coredinations. I added the Craftwork Card sentiment choosing 'Have a Fabulous Day' so that it could be used for a birthday, a prom or another special occasion, the sentiment doesn't label it towards one specific thing. The last thing I added was the little blue button, well I had to use one somewhere!

Anyway enjoy the rest of the evening, I shall catch up with you tomorrow.
Take care Zo xx
