Manga Easter Wishes!

Evening all!

So sorry I'm late in posting today, but I've not been feeling too well this weekend and have spent most of it in bed! I am feeling somewhat better now though!

Today I have another card to show you using those adorable new manga images! However, today's card is a little different! I have masked the image to show you how versatile it can be. This is what the cute April Showers usually looks like:

However, I have masked off her umberella and it's sleeve! As soon as I saw this image I though she looked like a real cutie in her hat and it reminded me of an easter bonnet, so I had to make an easter card with her!

Now I am not really happy with the yellow background. I tried using my chalks as I had seen on another blog, but mine didn't really work out as I had planned! Oh well! It looks a lot more patchy in this photo than it does IRL though! Lol!


Image: 'April Showers' from the new Manga collection by Sugar Nellie. Available here at Funky Kits. Coloured with Koh-i-noors asn Sansodor.

CS: SU Old Olive and DCWV

Paper: MME Penny Lane Glittered stack

Sentiment: Elzybells Everyday sentiments

Tools: Nesties, chalks, emery board for distressing

Misc: Card Candy from craftwork cards, glitter for edges of CS

I just LOVE this new Penny Lane paper stack from MME, it is just soooooo gorgeous, and best of all it only cost me £12.99 from my local range. What a bargain, I thought they had mispriced it so I hotfooted it to the till incase they realised their mistake! Lol!

Before I head off for some tea I just want to tell you about the fab new digi images that are on sale here over at funky kits! They are by the amazing artist Diane Duda and are a snip at only £2 each! Unfortunately for me I don't have a printer so don't have any samples to show you, but my fellow DT members have made some amazing cards with them so make sure you head over to their blogs and take a look!

Well I hope you've all had a lovely weekend! I feel like mine has been somewhat wasted as I have been laid in bed sick for most of it! Oh well at least I am feeling better now!

Enjoy the rest of your sunday evening and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Vicky, I hope you are feeling a little better now? It's so hard to craft when you feel like that!
Your card is so inspirational though. I love how you removed items to show the versatility!!! Great idea. The papers are very pretty as is the layout. Great job Vicky! Get better soon sweetie!!!

This is so clever Vicky! She totally looks like she is wearing a bonnet - good spot!

Talking of good spots, that MME paper MUST have been mispriced, that is such a bargain you lucky thing! ~x~
