Hi to you all,
Two posts in two days its scary I am on a roll, but I have to say I cant promise my posts will always be this regular!!
So here is card number two from the Magnolia Bon Voyage collection available from Sirstampalot

I used Chinese Tilda and the Magnolia Tree Paper and of course my favourite copics to colour with.
I used a sizzix die architectural accents to make the fake screen on the side.
The copic colours I used for the blues are BG09, BG05, BG01, BG000.
For the pinks I used my favourites which are R85, R83, R81.
For the browns I used E44, E43, E42, E41, E40.
Finally for the skin I used E02, E00, E000, E0000 and for the blush on the cheeks R20.

And now for my final card from the Bon Voyage Collection which has to be based on my favourite pastime shopping:)

So for this cheeky little card I used Tilda goes shopping (who I think looks a little like me!) and Boutique shop window,  I glittered up the jewellery and window with prisma Glitter and covered the window area with glossy accents, anyone who knows me, knows most of my cards have glossy accents on them somewhere.
The paper I used was Crate Paper Brook collection, Ripple and Wild Flowers.
Now for the Copics, for the Hair and bags I used E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, for the Top and Shoes I went for E59, E57, E55.
For the Skin as usual I used E02, E00, E000, E0000 and for the Blush R20, everything else is BG78, BG75, BG72, BG000.
So heres hoping you like my cards.
