Wild Orchid Crafts, Nitwits and Lili of the Valley

At last I have a card showing the new Hellebores that go on sale at Wild Orchid Crafts tomorrow. I think these are going to be one of my favourites and will be used all year round. I inked the tips of the petals with dusty concord distress ink before spritzing with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist.

For my card today I have used the sweet Christmas Candle image from Lili of the Valley and have coloured it with Copics. I’ll list the colours at the end of the post.

The papers are Nitwit Collections Still Joyful Hearts. Lilac is a colour I don’t often use but have done so twice in the last few days and am loving the colour (still so contrary lol).

The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts – I used Hellebores , 20mm roses, 15mm roses and 6mm rose buds. The leaves have been punched with a Woodware holly punch and I have inked the edges with the Dusty Concord ink.

Copic colours used:
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E59, E55, E40
Clothes: BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00, BV000, BV0000
Boots: C7, C5, C3
Holly leaves, candle: YG67, YG63, YG11, YR23, Y11, R29

Don’t forget there is candy up for grabs on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog as well as some more DT sneak peeks of the new Hellebores.

And ... it's the Kenny K Challenge today with new releases of Dude stuff at Kenny K's shop, and check out the fabulous cards Team B has done for the challenge.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday
