New Release day at Whimsie Doodles

Hi Peeps.... 

Today is new release day at Whimsie Doodles...  and I think Melyssa has come up with some fabulous new images this month!  I think all the DT were spoiled for choice and I did have difficulty deciding, but I eventually chose to go with this little lady - Abby Gables - available HERE.

Now I do tend to sit and stare at all my Copics when I try to decide on which predominant colour to go for,  and my eyes are always drawn to the pink section first.......  BUT... I held out and went for violets/lilacs this time..

Card Recipe:
Colouring: Copics -
Hair: E21, E34,  E23,
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Dress and Hat: V000, V01, V15, V17
Shoes: N1, N3
Shading: Blender, W0, W1, W3
Dies: Lil Inkers Stitched Ovals, Dienamics Blueprints Sets 12 and 3
Paper - Pink Petticoat Wild Blossoms
Glitter and Gem

I'm afraid it's such a very plain and simple design... but despite trying very hard, I didn't like anything else I tried to add,,,,, or do you think it was Abby telling me she didn't need anything else around her?  Just a pretty bow like the ones in her hair??  OK my imagination is getting carried away now!! 

I hope you'll drop by the Whimsie Doodles Blog HERE to see what the other DT members have come up with to inspire... and to see the other wonderful new release images in the shop HERE.

Big Hugs


  1. The purple is so pretty Christine - love your card. x

  2. It's gorgeous Christine, and I love the purples. It's my next fave after pink!

  3. Gorgeous ... Love the lilac colour tones :-) xx

  4. I definitely have times when images talk to me and tell me how they wish to be coloured or embellished... unless I am just talking to myself?!

    Anyhoo, this image looks fab on the CAS design and in the pretty lilac shades :-)

    Big hugs, Kat xx

  8. Super card and great choice of colour and I would say, you can't beat sweet and simple, sometimes things tend to get lost if the card is over crowded.
