Something Borrowed...

Hi bestest blogging buddies..

Time again for another weekly challenge at Totally Gorjuss... and this time the theme is 'Something Borrowed'!  So what could be better than library books?  LOL!

I had fun colouring this fabulous Saturated Canary image...  she's such a sexy looking librarian - none of the ladies in our local library look like that, or wear such red lipstick!  I used some new (from Harrogate) pens to colour her face... Graph-it alcohol markers.... I found them GOOD!

Card Recipe:
  • Image - Saturated Canary 'What the Librarian Reads'
  • Papers - Kaisercraft Magnolia Grove ( so gorgeous to use - it is almost flocked)
  • Colouring - Copics and Graph-it Pens
  • Kraft card
  • Die - Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics A
  • Glossy Accents on her specs and pen..
  • Gems from stash
  • Sentiment - PC generated
Now...  please note girls.... there is no pink or glitter anywhere at all on this card.... see?  I CAN do it!  (OK - I had to glitz her specs a tad with a couple of crystals... seemed a shame not to..)

The sponsor this week at Totally Gorjuss is the fabulous Ribbon Girl......  so why not pop over and join in the fun?

Hope the nasty white stuff isn't too bad where you are this morning... and if it is, that you don't have to travel too far.  Stay in, stay warm... and craft!

Big hugs and happy crafting..
