Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge

WOC1a

Morning everyone last day of the long break, I think I am now ready for things to get back to normal. Today we have the first Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge of  2011, we have a fabulous sketch by Bev for you to follow and a fabulous prize donated by Wild Orchid Crafts,  why not pop over to the blog and see the fantastic inspiration from the DT and find out more about the challenge.

 

  WOC3

A complete change of colour scheme for me today, my New Years Resolution is to try to use colours outside my usual comfort zone.   I have had this hAnglar & sTanglar image for ages but hadn’t inked it up before but will be using her more regularly now.  The papers are from the Nitwits Crabapple download, I have distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distressed Ink and used a Wide Border Punch from Martha Stewart on the top layer.    A Stempleglede image from Quixotic Paperie has been stamped and distressed with Vintage Photo DI.

 

WOC3b

I have used another of the Filigree Corners from Panduro,  I am getting very low on these now so must pop over to order some more.  I have coloured the image with Copics (colour below) .

 

WOC3dA close up of the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers I have used, whilst talking about Wild Orchid Crafts I have to tell you they are now stocking self adhesive rhinestones and also hip rosebuds.

Copic Colours used:

Flesh: E21, E00, E000, Dress & Hat  R37, R35, R32, E74, E71, E70 E43, E40.

 

Sorry this has been such a long post if you are still with me, thanks for visiting and have a great day
