Scary Mary

I have the crafting head of a … BUTTERFLY… which flits from here to there, then spies something else which gets it totally side tracked from what it started in the first place.

At times like this I have the attention span of a … GOLDFISH!!!

I say this because I was visiting my dear friend Donna this morning from Creative Smiles and saw the beautiful card she made. That’s all it took for me to forget the urgent piece I am making.

My butterfly head spun off to find the image which I coloured whilst on my crafting hols in Wales … remember the one with the reader and the crafter!! Now you might think that I am really rude by calling them the crafter and the reader … mmm maybe we could make a film of this … but both ladies asked me not to name them in my posts.

Anyway the goldfish took over and everything else was forgotten except finding what I had done with her.

Found her in my finished box of coloured images. Nicknamed her Scary Mary on the hols. Just added her to a tag with a few embellies and job completed. Now she can go in my finished tag box … so many boxes!!!!!

Now where was I … urrr the urgent piece which should have been completed yesterday!!

    Beautiful design! Sweet image, love your colouring and the sewing around the edge. The bow is fabulous as well. I also enjoy Donna’s designs which are very beautiful with lots of detail and embellishments. Take care, Shirleyx

    Your colouring is wonderful – I love that her shoes match her hair! The background is wonderful on your tag and the little bows are beautiful. Thanks so much for joining in our Forgotten Things Challenge at Our Creative Corner. Hugs, Anne x

    Oh, this is SOOOOO clever, Shirl! I love what you have done with the colors, stitching, tearing – all the components go so well with the image – and her name is a delight! LOL I would especially like to thank you for doing the close-ups in how you shade skin tones with copics. I like the darker fleshy/pink tones here and there, and the “smudgy” shading in her clothing – what a hoot! A delightful tag! I covet her hair (thanks, too, for the little plug to my blog – that was so thoughtful of you, Shirl!) hugs, de
