Lemon Pepper for Wild Orchid Crafts

Did you have a good weekend, mine was non stop!!  I’m way too used to my Tony doing everything so I can sit and play, now he sits and watches me doing all his chores.  I think he is secretly thinking payback lol.  He is doing really well and even went for a walk (to the end of the street but a walk nonetheless) yesterday, I can’t believe he is in no pain at all – such a change from the years of constant pain.

It’s Wild Orchid Challenge time and this week our challenge is Things with Wings.  Natch I went for butterflies then spotted the little birdie in the image and also on the fence.   I am loving the Elisabeth Bell stamps and this one – Lemon Pepper -  is my current favourite (for now lol).

I have used Echo Park Victoria Garden papers, and the little Picket Fence Die is by Whimsy Stamps (also from their new release), I just lopped off the bird and birdhouse from the one side.

The image has been coloured with Copics and pencils

Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000, R20
Hair: E57, 53, 51, 50 and dark umber pencil
Pinks: R85, 83, 81, RV000, 0000 and Tuscan red and black pencil
Greens: YG63, 61, G20 olive green and black pencil
Yellows: YR31, YR30

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I used 30mm Wild Rose, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses and lilies.  Also from WOC is the pretty pink pearls.  I used the tiny 10mm roses on the fence.

Have a brilliant week, at least it’s a short one (and it should be every week lol)
