Its got to be Love!

Hello again,

I have a gorgeous image to share with you today for the start of the new challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog and the theme is Love/Valentines

You know me, I'm not the mostly girly of girls but using a fabulous image is the best way to get into the mood, so I chose Keep A Secret Betty Boots by That Craft Place (Lisa is just amazing!)

Here she is:

I really loved the final look of this some of you know I've not been feeling the best lately and even harder on myself than usual but this one did the trick and made me smile :D

Here's what and how:
Image: Keep a Secret, Betty Boots from That Craft Place Etsy Shop
Coloured: Copic colours are; for the skin E000, E00, E21, E11, E04 and for the hair E53, E53, E57 and E59, sorry the reds where experimenting with my new pens so I don't have the final colours.  She was printed and coloured on 300gsm super smooth card from That Craft Place
Additional items available from That Craft Place as follows:
Backing Paper: My Minds Eye paper pad, also used for insert
Dies: Spellbinders Adorning Squares
Burlap, flowers, ribbon, MDF shapes and Frantage (loooove Frantage!)
Small bottle filled with small gems for fairy dust, which is good for wishes as we all know!
And bells!  The bells were from a Christmas Decoration I picked up from the Range last week at 70% off and I off course chopped it up and its now in my lovely stash!

So, this is my Love make and the bells actually make a fabulous sound when you shake the card!

Here's the close ups:
