Flo with Flowers...and more exciting news :)

I'm VERY excited because I found out this week that I was chosen as one of the Guest Designers for Pollycraft...woo hoo...I am soooo happy! I LOVE Paula's's so nice to colour.  This year they are featuring 2 GDs per month and my month is May :) 

This week the challenge at Pollycraft is Black, White & 1 Other Colour.  Boy, did I find this one hard!! I suppose I didn't help my cause by deciding I wanted to play in the Inkspirations challenge too :)  This week it's this sketch:
Here's my card:

On Friday I was in town and went to visit my favourite shop...Regal Press, in Launceston.  It's the BEST place to spend lots of money lol...anyhow...I found some new papers by a company I haven't seen before and just had to have some...bought one of nearly all of the ones there!!  They are DS and have a blingy side and an ordinary side.  I wanted to use one of the black & white papers for the Pollycraft that's what my whole card is based around...a piece of paper lol!

I've used the oh-so-cute Flo with Flowers from Pollycraft and coloured her with Copics and Prismas (hair).  Her hair really stumped me as it's curly and I couldn't figure out how I was going to achieve that with the Copics in black (black hair is not my strong point!)  She very nearly got pink hair until I thought of using the pencils!!  I wish the bling would photo better...the paper is GORGEOUS.  Guess it doesn't help when you're trying to photo in night light :(  One of these days I'm going to finish a project during the day and not be pushing to get the project into a challenge, so I can photo in natural light :)

Here's a close up of the cute Flo:

Hi Lynne! Go you! Have fun with your Pollycraft GD spot.
Lil Flo is adorable, even without pink hair! I can see why you had to buy out Regal's paper supply, the black & white print is gorgeous & looks lovely interspersed with the chalked, embossed panels. Love the black, white & pink colour palette & the fine border mats you have used. Hugs :)

I love this card Lynne. What a super cute image and you have coloured her so well. I love the papers and the embossed square panels are just gorgeous. Thanks for playing along with the Inkspirations sketch this week.
