La La Land Singing Marci and Samaflora Flowers

I had the wonderful chance to play with the wonderful La La Land 'Singing Marci' Recently for a challenge over at Kit and Clowder website .. I loved her so much that I coloured her up again today for my DT project for samaflora 

I am rather new to this type of card and am still doing a lot of make do work- I substituted an embossing pen and embossing powders in white,pearl and copper for frantage... it doesn't give exactly the look I was going for, but I am still quite pleased with it!
I coloured the image in copics and my black,cool grey 5,4 and 3 promarkers. I then used the embossing pen to add random dots around the outside and repeated with each colour of embosing powder. I then used a paintbrush to add distress ink in vintage photo. I finished up with my gold contour glass paint! I cut a similar size rectangle from papermania oyster blush paper and added that at an angle behind it, distressing the edges. underneath those layers is a thinner rectangle also in the oyster blush papers , with a strip of pale pink lace underneath and some cotton lace from TillyFlops Creations (also on facebook under the same name)
I added the sentiment supplied with the image over the bottom right corner, and added a leafy swirl and a vintage style key charm.
to the left of the image and slightly under it i added half a paper doily, and then got to work with my flowers... I used a hand stamped script  rose, two vellum roses , one green and one blue, three blossoms, three wired buds, and four miniature roses - all flowers currently available from Samaflora are to be found in the albums on the page :)

I also added in a little resin cameo, a die cut heart and a large ivory satin bow with two oversize hatpins to the top right corner. I really hope you like what I have done today...and hopefully I will pick up some frantage and other bits and pieces soon!
