Saturated Canary challenge 9- Die cuts/Punches..

Copic sketch pens- W1,W3 and W7
pastel blue promarker for light sabre

I am pinching myself as I write this little post because I still can't believe I am on the Saturated Canary DT!! I just want to say a quick thank you to Krista for wanting me to play with her gorgeous images, huge mahoosive hugs hun xxxxxx

Anywhoo, get on with it Lou!!! (lou takes deep first sc challenge post breath and ......) this weeks challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog is...
I had lots of fun with this challenge and I really enjoyed making my creations!! They are both 8x8 cards giving me plenty of room to play around with nestie shapes, Lord T's weathered clock die and some Funky Hand papers!!

For my little force card I fancied a mono theme!!
I used my circle nestie and scalloped circle nestie, my cuttlebug love language die for the heart and sewed it on with a kiss!! the heartblocks embossing folder and the stars embossing folder. 
My little force guy is coloured in just 3 copics (...mainly because I only have 12 copics..!!!) with a hint of pastel blue promarker on the light sabre.
The sentiment I made in word and added another die cut of the little hearts but popped them out for dimension.

Then onto Enjoy The Rain. Oooooh I love the mystery with this chick! she is awesome.

Copic sketch- B37 and B39
promarkers- blush,soft peach,peach,
cocktail pink and antique pink.

I love the quote on this one, its from Henry Wadsworth Longbottom and I thought it matched her so nicely. The spoltchy paper is one of my favs because it looks just like splotches of rain, and the pink polka dots were to match her skirt (...yup I have that colour the image hen find the papers thing going on this week!!!)
The leafy fronds are my MS punch, both in blue core card and a sparkly vellum and the punched border is MS cherish edger. I hand stitched that with some blue embroidery thread.
I couldn't help adding some pearls to this one.Omgoodness I just love both of these images sooooo much!!! 

All you need to do to join in the challenge is arm yourself with any Krista Smith Saturated canary digi or simply sassy stamp and get die cutting and punching!!!

Oh.....and why do I love that cute little The Force sooooo much...well here's a little reason own little mini Jedi!!! Mo-bi Wan Kenobi....!!

and here he is with Yoda!! (...and CP-3o but dopey mummy zoomed in on the cuteness and forgot to take another of the whole lot...ooops!!)
