Another blue card

Thoroughly enjoyed making this card.There are quite a few challenges it fits. The first being Kaboodle 11 'buttons and bling', then Papertake Weekly 'Dawny's sketch 2', A Spoonful of Sugar 25 'a childs card' and lastly ABC ' q for quick cards'. I think that's enough.

The blue papers are from Kaboodle pink and blue range, the yellow from stash box, cornered off using my scallop scissors, the image is a free download from Dinky Dots called 'Eskimo AJ Fishing'. They have cute downloads and now have stamps too, so thanks for that freebie. I got this ages ago and this is the first time I've used it.
I ve created a bit of ground and the little whirl pool myself. Also it's the first time I've used my Copics on an image. ROO for face,YO6 for hair and boots and E29 for fishig rod. The rest I've gently watercoloured as the rest of my colours are vibrant copics and I really wanted to keep this card subtle and not ruin it. I got 12 pens for £23.50 in a proper case then I bought the skin colour on its own. Anyway...the bling is the crystal dust around the rim of the coat, buttons from create and craft from ages ago.The round sentiment is hand cut, computer generated from the Brian Cary font, brad added from stash. Lovely jubbly! Oh I finished off with a bit of doodling as I was still within the 20 minutes quick card range.

ETA: Don't forget my blog candy further up.
