Mimi Hearts

Despite my New Year's resolution (2 years running) to water colour my images rather than reach for the quick and easy option of Copics, this is only my second attempt this year to keep that going.

However, my other resolution, which was to not buy any more crafting goodies, has failed miserably.  To be honest, it had probably failed before I'd even gone back to work on 2 Jan.  Therefore I'm arguing that two outings of the DI reinkers in 2 weeks isn't actually bad going, in comparison!

Anyway, this is little Mimi with her sparkly heart deely-boppers.  I've used a paper from my favourite Papermania pad, but a design that I've not used much.  The colours of the paper matched the colours I'd used on my image perfectly, so my colour matching OCD was appeased.

I added little loops of purple ribbon with, sparkly edges behind the image panel using small red heart brads.

I love the technique you use, matching the paper Annette it looks brilliant, as does the sweet Mimi. I have a Clementine with a heart that I must colour. LOVE those diddy brads.Enjoy your Sunday xx

This is gorgeous Annette... love the lilacs - and the way you have matched the pattern of the paper behind too.

I'm with you on the DI resolution bit... too easy to get out the copics... but I do try every now and again.

I set out for LOTV yesterday to get the new launch.. thought a nice drive would be good. Unfortunately, I clipped a cyclist who came off his bike - a bit of fault on both sides, so police and ambulance were called.. and I got breathalysed for the first time in my life! Registered zero thank goodness as I'd not had a drink. ANYWAY... didn't get my stamps - that'll teach me to order online in future!
