Lili of the Valley challenge – my sketch

It’s Lili of the Valley Challenge time again, and we’re following one of my sketches. Now then I made this card weeks and weeks ago for a commission. The only spec was it had to be a Lili of the Valley image (no hardship there then lol) and it had to be shades of lilac/purple. Now that was a toughie because these are so not my colours but thank goodness for the MME La Paperie paper stack – how gorgeous are these papers!!

I used a Doo Hickey Tilda Lace border die in cream pearlescent card to break up the purple. The pearl swirls are Prima and the little pearl hearts are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The flowers are also from WOC and are 10mm roses, 15mm roses, 4mm rose buds, cherry blossoms and 30mm wild rose.

The sentiment stamp is Whiff of Joy. How pants is this last pic, it looks yellow!! It was taken the same time as the other two pics. Cameras!!

I coloured the image with ProMarkers:
Skin: Apricot, Oatmeal, Blush
Hair: Satin, Buttercup, Ivory, Caramel (groom)
Grooms Suit: Cool Greys
Wedding Dress: Lavender, blender pen
Flowers: Lavender, Lilac, Plum, Meadow Green, Pine

Do check out the challenge blog as there are lots of sneaky peeks of the soon to be released Tea & Chat, Party Girls and Circular Sentiments. I had made this card weeks and weeks ago and didn't get time to make another using the new images for this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by,
