Red, White & Blue

Just a quick post so that I can enter this card into the Patriotic Colours challenge over at The East Wind, I have used the fabulous newsletter freebie for this challenge to.  So lots of red white and blue, the papers are very patriotic too as they are from a collection called 'Portobello Road' which is a place in London which has a fantastic market, one end starts with a car boot style market then you move through a normal market and the other end is full of antiques, I love it there, so it seemed very apt to use those papers, the stamps round the image and the sentiment are all from the collection too.  I liked the papers so much I got the 12x12 and the 6x6 which has enabled me to use a piece of the 6x6 blue crown paper in the build a brad to match the bigger crowns.  Had gret fun colouring her hair too.  I have used copics, spectrum pencils and tried out First Edition markers too for the skin tones, need more practice!  Anyway here she is the wonderful Lucy Loo in Profile ...
