Here comes Tokyo Girl

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.

 Here is a close up of the image which photographed better that the 
whole card.

Distress Inks used
Skin  -  Tattered Rose/ Antique linen/ Victorian velvet
Hair  -  Mustard seed/ Antique linen
Skirt, stocking, T shirt - Weathered wood
Jacket  -  Peeled paint
Scarf  -  Mustard seed/ dried Marigold

I'm now off to get an ice-cold drink - my outside thermometer reads 
33 degrees C and that's been in the shade all day - summer is here - yippee!!

That border with the ribbon threaded is astonishing - she's lovely & actually I prefer her in these colours to Goth - really really trendy.
