I know my card isn't as festive, but I really wanted to use the newest London Charlotte for my card.  With all the hoop-la going on with the Princess and Prince expecting their first child and all of London anticipating the birth I thought this was a perfect image to use.  My card is pretty CAS with lots of texture in the background thanks to one of my trusty embossing folders.  I wanted to do something fun so I cut out an oval and masked it over part of the image to give it a nice and fun silhouette, then I went in with my trusty sponge and Distress ink and that's how I got the image to look like that.  (hahaha)  I used Copics to color up the image and had to go online to actually see what colors were used for the clock tower and buildings.  Chose to give Charlotte a little bit of red which makes her outfit pop and then kept the rest of it neutral.

Congratulations Sparkle!! 3 years and still going strong!!  Thanks so much for inviting me to be part of the celebration.  Cheers to many many more my friend!!


Enjoy the rest of the hop everyone and don't forget to leave me a comment, remember there are prizes up for grabs, plus I love reading them, hahaha!!

Hugs,
Leanne
