Muchas Gracias!

As soon as I saw these 'Holly & Maddison' images from Charmed Crafts I was totally hooked and when they released their new 'World Tour' collection yesterday, I absolutely had to have them!

I was so hoping to have been able to finish the project yesterday to show you as I mentioned in yesterdays post, but alas, my eyes just wouldn't stay awake! (and I had a friend distracting me on Skype!!!!! - you know who you are - hehe!! lol) but I have completed my project now and this is one of my favourites the Spanish Senorita!!

I have printed her onto the thickest cardstock my printer will take and coloured her in both copics and watercolour pencils. The papers are also digital downloads from Pink Petticoat and the image has also been stamped with Basic Gray flourishes stamps. The sentiment was created in word doc and printed and I embelished it with a paper rose that I made

-I saw them making them at a local craft shop a few years ago, came home and made one so that I wouldn't forget, whilst it was still fresh in my mind - and Im so glad I did as it has really been useful - I will try and make up a tutorial for it, and I'll try to do it sooner rather than later - I'll try!!

Now, I did mention yesterday that there were two projects, so I will come back later tonight to post that one too!
