- cockney blonde
- My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Friday Sketchers #136; Just Magnolia, Special Monthly Challenge; Copic Creations #41; Cupcake Challenge #124
Anyway, it gave me the opportunity to break into my new DP by Papermania ' Henbury Lane'. OMG the papers are really scrummy and sparkly and the colours are divine. Here I've used 3 of the sheets from the purple selection, it was a difficult choice, but I wanted it to blend with the cute little heart buttons which in turn complemented Tilda's balloon. I've coloured Tilda with copics as follows :-
skin - E21, 93 and Promarker Satin (in place of my poorly E00)
hair - E31, 33, 35
jumper, shoes and ribbon - RV02, 04, 34
wings - RV000
balloon - BV00, RV02, 04
outline - W1
The main background paper has already got sparkle and shine to it but I also added some stickles to her fairy wings.
As for the ribbon...well what can I say....lush or what. I've had it for ages and can't remember where I got it but it just seemed to fit this project.
I hope you like it and the challenge details are below, x
