Lili of the Valley Challenge

This week’s Lili of the Valley challenge is a brilliant sketch by Dawny, loved working with it hun.  My card for today was a nightmare, this is the 4th card, the other 3 went in the bin and this one would have followed if I had the time to make another.  My mojo has nicked off again – if you find it please send it back!  The paper is – Prima Jack and Jill, the first time I have used the terracotta and green papers, think I should stick to the blues and browns in the pad.

The image is Rosie with Presents from Lili of the Valley, coloured with Copics.  The seam binding has had the usual distressing treatment (I just love this stuff).  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Ticket Sentiments and they are in stock again so if you want them be quick because they sell out fast!!

The Copic colours are Skin: E21, 00, 000, R20; Hair E53, 51, 50; Dress, shoes, socks and presents  E19, 17, 15, 13, YG63, 11

  62. If this is the kind of card you make while your mojo is missing then it strikes me that you are a lady of such talent that mojo isn't really a requirement. I think it's beautiful! Wonderful colouring, superb palette, lovely everything! Warmest wishes, Lesley
