Lilac and lemon

I downloaded the new Nitwit Collections kit on the weekend, the colours are ones I usually run a mile from but I really fell in love with this Time for tea collection kit, love pansies so couldn’t resist.  I merged the pansy border on to the striped paper in photoshop to carry the pansies on to the striped layer.  The kit is full of fab elements that are perfect to mix and merge.

I had a batch of sample cards to make up for Lili of the Valley and this is one of them that went off in the post to them today.  The stamp is Meant to Be which is proving to be so popular, as soon as it comes into stock it goes right back out again so you need to be eagle eyed for this one.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and only a light touch of pencil. And of course the embellies are all from Wild Orchid Crafts -  I used a trellis rose, 20mm two tone roses, sweetheart blossoms and white seam binding.

The sentiment is from the Love Sentiments set also from LOTV

  10. Bev this is truly a beauty. Your coloring is amazing & I was so hoping you had used your Copics to get this pale shade of yellow since you're always so wonderful to share the colors with us. I have a dreadful time trying to get a pale yellow ... Might have to look into the Flex or Promarkers.
    Those Nitwit papers are gorgeous & after seeing how nicely they've printed up I am going to buy them once I get home.
    Love this adorable image & I can see why it sells so fast.
    Hope your hubby is doing well.
