The Creative Card Crew wanted and easel card this time and as I used Tokyo boy yesterday I wanted to used Tokyo girl today. These images are digi-downloads from Dewdrop Craftz and such a delight to colour as well as being perfect for teenagers.
I intended to colour in moody Goth type colours, I don't know what happened but she wouldn't let me and I had to colour in these light pretty colours but I still think she has a sassy quality about her. She is coloured with distress inks and the edges are inked with vintage photo. The papers are from the Extreme Volume III CD by Donna at Bearly Mine Designs . The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the border cut with Spellbinders In Spades borderabilities and the flourishes from a Marianne createability. The inside tag is cut with Spellbinders fancy tags and the sentiment LOTV. The tag is chipboard, covered with paper and stamped another LOTV sentiment, tied with fibres and a cross charm attached which I thought matched the cross on Tokyo girl's lapel. The sentiment reads Special Friend but got covered up with the fibre on my attempts to photograph this card, which fought all the way I might add.
