Emma in the rose garden

It’s Lili of the Valley challenge day today and our challenge is Pink and Blue, two colours I never put together so I struggled with this one.  I love and use both colours a lot but never together so thank goodness for good old Tilda pads to the rescue.

All the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts of course – flowers are Classic Sweet Rose, 25mm wild rose, sweetheart blossoms, 10mm roses and I also used metal embellishments corner (which I heat embossed with white EP), Medoc seam binding (love this colour), guipure lace, and heart doily.  The sweet little tag is a die set from Go-Kreate.  The Hello sentiment is from one of the Lili of the Valley clear Additions sets.

The image – Emma Rose Garden – has been coloured with Copics (I didn’t use pencils this time)

Skin E11, E01, E000, R20, R30 (been trying out different skin colours)
Hat E43, E41, E40 W00
Pinks: R85, R83, R81, RV000
Blue: B01, B00, B000
Greens: YG63, YG61, G20

Two more sleeps till the Doncaster show woohoo, can’t wait :)

  19. Simply gorgeous Bev, you just rock with your wonderful coloring (do you ever tire of hearing that) but it's the truth. Wonderful dies (that heart doily is such a beautiful touch as is the little sentiment)... I so love to see what new thing you create in the middle of the night ... I KNOW you must never sleep or maybe in your sleep is where you dream up these amazing designs ...
    Hugs, Janie
