Ratatouille!

This week’s Saturated Canary Challenge is Dots.  Nice and easy until you dig through your papers and realise the card you had planned in your head ain’t gonna work without the dotty papers to match lol.  Thank goodness for the Prima Rondelle paper pad, this has got to be one of my all time favourite pads.  Note to self – buymore before they are unobtainable (been there, done that lol).

There are dots on there, promise.  And just to make sure I popped a couple of Prima Say it in crystals corners on, those are dots that make up the pattern, aren’t they?

I have coloured Ratatouille with Copics and pencils and the colours used are:
Hair: E29, 25, 21, 50 and dark umber pencil
Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000, R30
Peach: R00, 000, 0000 and medium flesh Polychromo pencil
Pink: R81, RV000, 0000 and pomegranate Prisma pencil
Black: C7, 5, 3 and black pencil
Beige: E43, 41, 40 and french grey 70% pencil
Mouse: W5, 3, 1, 0

The pearls dotted around the image are done with a Viva Pearl Pen.  Liquid Pearls will give a similar effect but not as pronounced and 3D as the Viva.

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley’s Handwritten Phrases.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Craftscottage rose, poppies, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 4mm rose buds, lilies, 20mm rose, white leaves.

Have a great weekend
