Seeing double...

Good afternoon, lovely Bloggers!  I'm back today as promised with the second card that I made yesterday...you'll probably notice that it uses the same layout as my last card (hence the post title!), but looks completely different!  I decided to make this one for the boys...

...As you can see, I'm still in colour mode and have double matt all my layers with nice bright coordinates.  The image is the Larakins from Emerald Faeries - I just adore these little imps, they look so full of fun!
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and paper pieced the hat of the lower imp.  I made the skin tone a bit pinker on these as I am experimenting with different shades...so, here come the colours :
Skin - Blush, Dusky & Pastel Pink
Blue - Midnight, Navy FM, Cadet FM & Celstial FM Blues
Red - Amaranth FM, Crimson, Burgundy
...Once again, I decorated the inside to match and added some glamourdust to the wings, pearls and buttons to embellish.  Just goes to show how the same card can look so different depending on the colours and papers you use.  Thanks for dropping by to seee me and I'll be back soon with some more crafty creations!  Lisa x
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
