Use Two of Something - New My Besties UK Challenge

Good Morning again Crafty Bloggers, another DT creation from me, this time for My Besties UK Use Two of Something Challenge. I have used Sherri Baldy's digi image 049 which you can purchase here. I printed the image on to water colour card, die cut it using Spellbinders decorative ovals, coloured it in using 2 Promarkers Almond and Blush for the skin, Cinnamon and Caramel for the hair, Baby Pink and Antique Pink for the lips and finally Vanilla and Tan for the clothes. I topped this on to die cut Papermania paper capsule backing paper using the second slightly larger size decorative oval die. The second paper capsule paper was used as the main backing. For decoration embellishments I used Creata mirror card die cut using Joy Craft leaf die, Papermania flowers, brads, lace ribbon, brown ribbon and gems from my stash. I finished off by edging the image topper with Creative Expressions enchanted gold guilding wax and Indigo Blu yellow ochre pan pastel.

2 backing papers
2  main theme colours - Brown and Cream
2 brown ribbons
2 sets of flowers
