LP Teacup Lady card inspired by Keren Baker at Paper Artsy

It's just stopped raining here in Manchester and if you had looked in this direction earlier you may have also noticed a blue haze over here as well!!
So….it was raining, my card (Keren Bakers fabulous card is here)was almost complete - in fact - all ready to get the glue out and then despite Lucy's words ringing in my head (see here - so funny!)I decided to have a go at cutting out the diamonds on the dress and poke a bit of fabric through. Hmmph! A little bit through - a little bit back - nearly gave up but as my friends always tell me "Chris, you're so patient!" If only they could have seen me - I shut my craft room door so hubby couldn't hear - yes folks - naughty words were said - nothing too awful - I'm not that sort, but for me, bad enough!!!
Instead of dots I used my Distress Markers to spritz some colour - not with the new TH contraption but one I've had for years. At last something I'm reasonably happy to put in the post.
 Now if I can just work out how to get a coffee sachet to stay in place on the back………

Linking to Paper Artsy and at this point would say - Keren, it was fun….up to that point!!!! LOL!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Wow Chris this is gorgeous, I loved it when I saw the original but the thought of cutting out all those squares - no thank you! Well done for hanging in there, it was worth all the effort (but that's easy for me to say lol) xx

We had some rain, but probably not as much as you did.
Nice colourful creation!

Lovely card Chris and your story about the air being slightly blue did make me laugh.

This is gorgeous. I know the feeling of getting to a certain point and realizing I probably needed a way to adhere something. But I still believe you made a really lovely piece, that was almost magical.

Sorry about the comment. I was SURE it was you who asked, and didn't bother checking before I wrote you. Oh well, just goes to show I'm probably losing my mind (grin).

This looks lovely, Chris! It's hard to believe naughty words were said in the making of it! Ah, Keren, you make everything sound so easy!!! Anyway, Chris, you came up with a beauty in the end! I love this. Now I'm off to catch up with Lucy's! xxx

Love those vivid colours freshened by all that fab white space (why do I find it so hard to leave white space?!). Gorgeous!
