Hannah Lynn - frenchie friends - michelle and jojo

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.I am scheduling this on friday as its work this morning.
So on to my card which is the most beautiful Hannah Lynn digi which will be available very soon at  CRAFTS & ME.I could not wait to colour her up and i tried something a little different for colouring the background, will share that further down.
So say hello to the very pretty FRENCHIE FRIENDS who i am also entering into the following challenges:
1.Stampin for the weekend - challenge 110 - Fantastic sketch
2.The ribbon girl - colour challenge 19 - Vintage pinks and creams

joy craft swirl (diecut0
mix of woc roses and acrylic flowers
pearl mica spray
stickles stardust
CRAFTS AND ME digital image - FRENCHIE FRIENDS -HANNAH LYNN - available soon
promarkers and flexmarkers

promarkers and flexmarkers used are:
blush,sunkissed pink,coral,cinnamon.cocktail pink
pink carnation,blossom.rose,watermelon.antique pink
satin,pastel beige,warm grey 3,5
pearl mica spray

this is to show the sparkly background better.
i added my shading the normal way first, i then used the champagne flexmarker and scribbled  it on an acrylic block, i sprayed a little pearl mica spray on it and mixed and then applied to the background with a paintbrush.
i then repeated it but using the warm grey 3 promarker and the mist to add a little more shading.
Looks really pretty and shimmery irl.

 and a sideways view.

and for those who asked here is a pic of my gorgeous clematis.i believe it is the montana variety and i think their is about 6 plants altogether.we had to put extra support posts in last year as the weight was pulling the trellis over.
its the best i`ve ever seen this year.
Thanks so much for popping by, means a lot :D
Have a fab Saturday
Luv Coops.xx

Amanda said...

Coops this card is stunning. I love the background effect and I like how you don't always stick everything perfectly. For instance the lace...I would have tucked it in etc but it looks really lovely just 'rough' like that.
The Clematis is amazing! What a beautiful effect that gives. xx
