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!

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!
