Happy Monday, and happy it is because I have the day off work although I will be hard at work in my craft room all day getting a last minute commission finished off. It's Wild Orchid Challenge day today and we have a fab challenge too – Anything Goes. How easy is that!! And the prize is just delish too – flowers, rhinestones and lace.
For my card today I followed the fab sketch on Papertake Weekly so am entering this card there. Thanks Dawny, it’s a brill sketch babe.
And seeing as I was lucky enough to win one of these kits I thought I had best use it lol. Too many stamps, not enough time to ink them all up in for sure! I coloured the image with Copics and Prismacolour Pencils
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair and shoes: E29, E25, E50 and Burnt Umber Prisma Pencil
Blouse and stockings E41, E40, 0 and Black Prisma pencil
Dress: B99, B97, B95, B93, B91 and black Prisma Pencil
I blinged the flowers with Glimmer Mist then added stickles to the edges to bling them even more. You need your shades for this bling lol. The sentiment is done on a Sizzix charms die – too cute. The distressed heart behind the flowers was just freehanded from chipboard then coated with distress crack paint then attacked with even more stickles.
The flowers used are Classic Tea Rose, cherry blossoms, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 4mm rose buds. The seam binding was distressed with distress ink and scrunched then left to dry. The totally gorgeous papers are new in stock at Dies to Die For – K & Co Julianne. The pad is a stonking 96 pages and OMG each sheet is better than the next. As soon as it arrived I had to order a second pad – gotta have one to calm me down when I cut into the other one rofl. This is going to become my all time favourite pad I think. Love love love it. And it comes it two colour ways and guess who had to have 2 pads of each rofl. In fact I had to have almost one of each of all the new K & Co goodies in stock. I just can’t help myself – I am a lost cause!!!
A better look at that gorge classic sweet rose, so pretty. The swirl die cut is a Magnolia Doo Hickey swirl – this has to be my most used die. Love it!
Right I have waffled on long enough – back to the grindstone for me. Have a fabulous week!
Oh and this card is in my eBay shop.
