D'Arcys Diaries - Midway reminder

We still have a fantastic challenge running over D'Arcy's Diaries and its to use all your Dies and Punches. I wanted to challenge myself a little this week and use a male image as its easy to use them on female cards. So this is what I've come up with

Ta Da!!!!

I have used Sitting up High for this card and coloured him with Promarkers, now I've been watching lots of copic colouring on You Tube and have tried to do it with my promarkers  and I really love how its turned out. I have used my silhouette to cut the backing paper into a notepaper shape, I have also cut the shapes his is sitting on on the silhouette too. I have added ephemoria tag, stamps and watch witch I have added a glass face to by using Glossy Accent. The sentiment is a magnolia one which I have coloured to tie it all together, Oh and I have added a feather as that corner looked a little bare. The finishing touch is the card candi.

Why not head over to the D'Arcys Diaries Blog HERE and see what the rest of the DT have created - SIMPLY STUNNING springs to mind!

Maybe you'll feel inspired to join in the fun too :0)
