TCP new release - LuLu with Brolly

Hello! So today I am sharing with you one of the new releases that have been designed at the Crafty Pad this is LuLu with Brolly and I am sure that you will agree she is a cutie - I love the detail that is on her coat and the expression on her face!
I have coloured her using my SU ink-pads and an aqua brush and I have added the colour and created depth by letting the image dry before adding another coat. I inked the edges if the image and stapled a satin ribbon detail to the right hand side. I mounted the image on to pink heart DSP that I have had about 5 years and finally decided that the time had come for it to see the light of day and my trimmer! lol
I then mounted this DSP onto yellow card. Down the left hand side of the card I added three swirls from the die-cuts that my friend Tina sent me and apologies I don't know what these are either - I am terrible... 
After purchasing my big shot about two years ago I have only recently taken it out of the packaging and started to use it - I think I may be hooked though!
I coloured one of the die-cuts in marina blue using a dauber so that the colours matched exactly - something that always makes me feel better when I am crafting! ;-)
I stamped a sentiment from curvy verses which I love and also added three card candi because I love these too!
If you would like to be in with a chance of winning this image all you need to do is leave a comment on today's post at the crafty pad and you will go into the draw...

and for a chance to win a complete set of the new releases you will need to leave comments on all the posts for the new releases (sun, mon, tues (today) and weds)

One final detail to this card that I decided I would try was to crystal effects the brolly so that it looked wet and decoupage this onto the image - I am really pleased with the result and think that this adds more depth to the image - I also did the same with LuLu's wellies because if she is anything like me she will have to jump in the puddles!
