Moo-vellous News!

I'm delighted to announce that I have been asked to join the Design Team for Karen's Doodles and, of course, I have said 'yes'! So, look out for me on the DT from 1 August 2010 and don't forget to catch up with me each week when I post my regular Monday Karen's Doodles post. 

Here's one to be going on with:

Image: Karen's Doodles, 'Bovine Beauty'

Papers: Basic Grey, 'Wisteria' collection

Ain't she darling?  I just love this image - and I couldn't resist using this sentiment!

The card is probably a little busier than I set out to make it, it has to be said.  I must have been 'having a moment', I think but, hey, she's gorgeous anyway.

I paper-pieced her dress with one of the co-ordinating sheets from my Basic Grey 6x6 pad - such a useful size, don't you think?  Particularly as the patterns are smaller and perfect for paper-piecing.

I coloured the rest of her with my Copics, adding grass and 'glow' with my Prismas.  (Lots of you have asked how I do that, so I'll be putting together a short 'how to' video shortly - keep popping back to check!)

Everytime I look at her I giggle - I just love that pose! 
Very Mae West, I'm sure!

Anyway, can't stop long - dinner is in the oven and it'll soon be time to eat.  Fish tonight - under duress!

Happy crafting.
