braid in my hair

Hello there my friends. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we are sponsored by Conie Fong Art.

The lucky winner will get a $10 voucher in her shop. She does have some lovely images and it is well worth a visit. I chose to work with an image called Braids in my hair. I must say that I really liked this image. There are a certain serenity and tranquillity in this picture.

I printed her on milk coloured card as I read that it allows you to create better light and dark contrasts. Below you can see the spectrum noir pencils that I used to colour her in.

I wanted to make an easel card and so use the new Tonic dies that I had recently bought. So I die cut her out of one of the shapes. I tried to find matching mirri card and also patterned paper. I thought that the flowers on the Anna Griffin paper matched the ones on her hair.

The bow is also part of the die set that makes the shaped easel card. I finished it off with a pearl as I felt the centre was a bit bare.
For further inspiration and to see some more lovely Conie Fong images, please visit the TTCRD blog. See you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:


  1. This is a gorgeous easel card Theresa and the colours are beautiful and the Anna Griffin paper goes so prettily with the wonderfully coloured image. I love that die cut bow too. x

  2. I love the bow detail to hold up the easel card ! Pretty card
