Winnie... Pretty in Pink

Is this an amazing Sunday or what?!  Just a beautiful day out there! 

Coloured up little Winnie last night.  She looks like she'd rather be out then in... but what a cutie she is.  Can't wait to try this image again... those curtains are begging to be paper pieced, right?!  This is Uptown Girl Winnie peeking out the window by Stamping Bella

Now as far as Copics go, I don't normally go for the brighter colours and these pinks (RV11 & 13) are down right fluorescent.  Abandoned twice, but then determined to finish I decided to add a few streaks of E81 overtop of the curtains to tone it down a bit and add some creases.  Then I used my Inkssentials white pen and added a little dot-design.  

As usual... heaving on the glossy accents!  LOL - now you know what attracted me to this image... and no, I don't buy it in bulk quantites... YET

Kept the inside quite simple as usual.  Love little sweet Winnie though, eh?  Don't you just want to ring her doorbell?!

Carla, your draperies are fantastic! I love the way you accentuated their texture and folds at the top. Your rose trio matches the flower box flowers to perfection. Gosh I love that rose die you have. What a beautiful card!

The roses caught my eye first, then as you 'walked' us through the card I admired each piece of pretty :) Do the glossy accents go over Copics? I had no idea!! (I told you I bought some Copics, right? I just don't use 'em much at all. Lol!)

Have a beautiful day.

Winnie is a winnah!! Such soft pretty colours! I LOVE the shine on the window and the soft blue you added and as always, I am in awe of your zig zag sewing! The roses are the perfect finishing touch!

WOW! this is stunning! Carla your colouring is beautiful, I mean look at those curtains - they look so real, the dots are a nice addition to them. Just an overall wonderful card. Love the flowers too!

This is stunning and I love how honest you are about the bright colours and your trick to tame it. Love all the glassy accents you really are hooked on that stuff

Oh my gosh - these just keep getting better and better! You've adorned this rather large image beautifully with the dark boarder and paper rosettes. Hmm I guess I should wait to color this one now...
