Pearls and Swirls at Just Magnolia

I chose this week’s Just Magnolia challenge – pearls and swirls, and we all know how I like simple *cough*.  My DT kit arrived this week from Lili of the Valley and in there was the new paper pads that go on sale next week.  Oooh I just did not know which one to break into first lol.  They really are scrummy, a nice heavyweight paper and they are 8 x 8 which I love – means I get to use the leftovers for to decorate the inside and back of the cards without having to break into another sheet (gotta have some spares to stroke lol).  The pad I have used on today’s card is Petal Fresh.  This is one of the pads that feature the fabulous Nitwit Collections papers.  YUM!

Coloured with Copics and pencils:

Hair: E57, 53, 51, 50 and dark umber pencil
Skin: E11, 00, 000 and R30.  I find colouring on to MIC card I don’t need to use the E0000, the blending is sheer perfection!
Dress: B95, 93, 91 and Polychromo Prussian Blue pencil
Socks, Daisy: C1, 0, 00 YR31, 30
Boots: W3, 10, 0, 00 and light umber pencil

The flowers, leaves, Flat Backed Scalloped Pearl, pearl spray and lace are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little resin flowers I picked up in the US earlier this year and the gorge daisy is from my lovely pal in the US (what would I do without you sweets??)

  29. I'm back online Bev, after weeks of no connection (thanks to BT!). I just couldn't wait to catch up with all your gorgeous creations! There are so many from these past weeks, too many to comment on each one, but I just want to say as always, you have filled me with inspiration! It broke my heart just a little bit to read the drama over your generous paper give-away. As one who has benefitted from your generosity so recently, I was agast that any of this ever happened! You are a generous soul Bev, with your talent and your goodies. I hope you have left that event behind and not looked back. I'm still getting joy from my lovely stash of papers (which ARE the ones in the last photo). I love them to bits! Must get some of my creations using them up so you can see. I'm still so joyful to have one those, as it's just not usually my luck! Big hugs to you and thanks for all your constant inspiration, Wends xxx (CraftyKiwiMum)
