I Am Totally Cursing Bing :(

im copy 

Oh yes I am,  for reasons that will become clear in a mo, but firstly good morning lovely peeps and hope you are all OK.

It’s my third week as a GD with the ever so fab Simon Says Challenge girls, and  I really loved this one. So today, Simon Says

Are You All White?

Well I am chicks, but I have THAT song in my head now. You know,  the one about dreaming of a white Christmas.  And now you will  as well, soz peeps. Bloody Bing (‘scuse le Francais!!).  I could kill him if he weren't already dead cos it just won’t go away and I even found meslef singing it in a rather jazzy way before whilst tidying up the kitchen!!!!!. I didn't even know I was doing it until I noticed the cat giving me funny looks.

It must be something to do with that world ‘Bing’ because I did this once before after watching Madam Gazelle signing the Bing Bong song on Peppa Pig. I hasten to add here that I was watching it with Kyla. No, really I was!!!!

I am in need of therapy !!!!!!!!!

I am also in need of Photoshop therapy cos try as I might, I could not get these pics to look the way I wanted them to look because of the awful light here at the mo.

But anyway, this is what I did.

I coloured this jolly Tilda with a mixture of Copics and Pro Markers and chucked the list away again – doh!!!!

GORGEOUS white blooms and swirls :)

And I inked the edges which sort of sends my head west when I do it as the card isn’t as clean looking which kind of upsets me a bit, but sometimes I can’t help meself!!!!.

2 shades of white here for the lace ie white pearly card (which I usually hate but it looks quite nice here),  and normal white card.

2 shades of white re the editing as well – grrrrrrrr.

The one on the left needs a bit of Daz I think – it looks grimy but it’s the best of a bad lot!! The one on the right has a touch of pinkness to it.

I don’t know what I do wrong apart from fiddle about with it too much!!!!

Ok so that’s the pics peeps. The shopping list is -

Copics, Pro Markers, Doo Hickey Tilda Lace Die, Marianne D Creatable Swirl Die  - all from Dies To Die For

Blooms – all from Wild Orchid Crafts

Before I go I have to share this with you. I found this awesome photo editing software on the web. Now you’re probably thinking that given the state of these pics, it can’t be much cop, but it is and better still,  it’s FREE so check it out peeps. And it’s easy to use as well – far simpler than Photoshop IMHO.

Also, don’t forget to check out the challenge blog cos there are some beauts to feats your eyes on over there. And if by any chance you start singing White Christmas later, I apologise in advance!!!

Huggiest of hugs and se you tomoz with something a bit on the diva stroppy side!! Here’s a sneak peek until then …..

Gorgeous card Dawny, fabulous Tilda and stunning details.
Love making all white cards, but agree photographing and editing them is a nightmare.
