January Same but Different at My Besties UK

Today is Same but Different day at This month the DT have all used this really pretty Sherri Baldy image no 688. You can purchase the digi stamp here. Don't forget to pop over to the My Besties UK blog to see all the fabulous cards the team has produced.

A little change for me today as I have used Copic pens for colouring the flowers as well as my usual Spectrum Noir markers. The Copic markers used are RV91 and RV93. I used them as I haven't really managed to find a lilac purple combination I like as much as this in my Spectrum Noir markers. However, I am happy to have finally found a brown hair combination I really like with them- I have used TN4 TN5 TN7 and TN8.

I have teamed the image with Trimcraft First Edition Mulberry Kisses papers and kept it pretty with lace, doilie, some die cut flowers and pearls. These papers are so lovely, and have a great texture too, I just love them.

I'd like to enter this card for these challenges:

Thanks for visiting today and for all your lovely comments. Cathy x

  4. Cathy, this is a really pretty card. I love the delicate colours you have used, your colouring in that pretty yellow looks beautiful.

  5. Great card Cathy. The Spectrum Noir blog has lots of inspiration on working with the lilac/purple shades. Kalina has posted some beautiful work in these shades: There are also loads of tutorials on hair combos both on the blog and on the pinterest board that you may find useful. Hope this helps.
