Huhmmmm - now I have your attention I have an announcement!!!

Finally I can let the cat out of the bag.......... I made it onto the Delicious Doodles DT. How I kept it a secret lord only knows! To celebrate I made this card, which hopefully will give you all a taste of things to come.


I really wanted to show this gorgeous image off, so have not gone overboard with embellishments or papers. The image has been coloured with distress inks and Promarkers. I've given her lips and eyes a coat of glossy accents and the skulls on her belt, necklace and bracelet have been coloured with a silver Promarker and then stickled. The image has then been spritzed with glimmer mist to give it a subtle sparkle. Unfortunately, I couldn't capture the sparkle of the papers and image as it was a dreadful day, so I'm afraid you'll have use your imagination!

The DP was a freebie (if anyone recognises it, please let me know so that I can give the proper credit for it), which I've doodled on with a Sakura Stardust gel pen.

I had a lot of fun colouring this image and can see that I am going to be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting images as there are so many fabulous ones that I've struggled to know where to start!! Please do check out the Delicious Doodles Store and the rest of the hugely talented DT members, whos' blogs are listed on my sidebar.
