No Colouring

Hello and welcome to my room . Actually it's the  best way to visit me at present,  as I am still suffering from the after effects of the flu virus , while MMM is requiring a lot of TLC as he now suffers it .

It has been about five days since I have posted,  sorry. 
But today I have this card to share . Using the new set Tote- ally Tess and all SU card stock I have dressed Tess without any colouring .
Going Grey hair, DSP green shirt , I think Old Olive slacks . The apron was stamped in basic black on whisper White . Tess was stamped in basic brown on Whisper White card and again on the other card stock so that just the item of clothing was then cut out and laid onto main image . I then added the little hand made card .
The greeting stamped in basic brown on Whisper White was layered onto Going grey then basic black. Added flower embellishments finished the card . Oh ...may be a little colouring  as I went over her lips with red marker and her shoes in black.

This technique really adds dimension and I love it .
I think too , that my workshop ladies will enjoy dressing Tess in their favourite colours.
Hope that you found it interesting as well.

Sory to hear you've been sick Shirley-Anne - I really do think it's the change of the seasons though!
Love this image and interested to see a card made using her! I'm going to my local SU lady next Sat. to see all the new 'toys' but I must be good......famous last words!!!! Take care
