Ladybug Nora

(For some reason, it's the UNcropped photo that has been added - grrr!!)
As you may have read before, my lovely friend, Elaine sent me some brilliant card and some images for painting with Distress Inks.  Ladybug Nora was the first image I coloured and I love her - she's soooo cute and DEFINITELY on my wishlist!!  I'm really pleased with her face and hair, but I think I need more practice working with the red. 

But anyway, I've layered her on my Nesties and Clare Curd papers.  I managed to find some red ribbon and decided that I'd make a few pins for embellishments as I've never made a card using these before.  Predictably, I've used Stardust Stickles for her wings.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

  6. Gorgeous card Susie.
    Your colouring is fabulous!! (Notice, I NEVER use red! I find it really, really difficult to blend)
    I'm shamed to say that I've never even coloured this image, stamping it out is as far as I got, naughty old me!

    Love Elaine xx
