Basic Grey Challenges 22 ~ Colour Combo #6

Good Morning, today we have a new challenge on Basic Grey Challenges... a gorgeous colour combo by our lovely Heather. Pop over to see the amazing cards from my DT friends :)

I have had this amazing image un-inked for some weeks now and only got to colour her in, she is beautiful! I have coloured her with my copics and tried to keep to the BG colour combo but think the butterfly chose to be pink tee hee! The background I've been wanting to try since I saw Traci's pretty card, mine's very dark and some of the vines are lost too! 
I have applied dots of liquid pearls over the bubbles on the image, they give a raised pearly texture. I have painted over the whole image with a generous amount of crackle paint, now she reminds me of the old paintings!

Ok!!! the felt flower, I knew I HAD to have this die, it was on my wish list for a while then I spotted it over at craftydevils and could not wait!!! I love it I think you will see many many cards with this one somewhere LOL!
