Happy Thursday all, it’s Lili of the Valley Challenge Time again and this week our theme is “I believe in Fairies”, well I do I have them living at the bottom of my garden. Lili of the Valley have so many stunning fairy stamps that this shouldn’t be too difficult a challenge.
I have chosen Dandelion Clock fairy for my card, I do so love her little cardigan, my Nan knitted me one just like it when I was young. I have also used a ribbon from the LOTV Clear Additions set called “Ribbons and Bows”, the image and ribbon have both been coloured with Copics, the papers are a mixture of various Nitwits Collection downloads. I used a Marianne Designs Die set for the roses. The 4mm closed rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The Copics used:
Shoes and Cardigan and Ribbon: YG07, YG01, YG00
Skirt, Wings & Cardigan and Ribbon: R37, R22, R21, R30
Flesh: E02, E01, E00, E000 R20
Hair: C9, C6, C5, C3
I have been loving the fabulous images from Make it Crafty that have been cropping up recently but I have had a bit of a crafty spending spree this months (what's new), and have been trying to resist, but I am a woman with little will power and today I gave in and bought a few (10 I think).
This little beauty is called “Siren Lorelei” and I have popped her into another of the digi images called “Clam Shell”, the images come as a Zip file and are JPeg and PDF images so you can resize them or take them into your graphics programme they even come with a coloured image to get you started.
I took ages colouring the hair and shell that there wasn’t much time before I went to bed to make up the card, so it isn’t one of my best, as she is sitting in a Clam shell I thought I would give the card a Pearl theme, I have tried to give the impression of pearls just falling through her hands. The papers are from the new collection of Magnolia Papers from Crafts U Love, and the doily poked behind the image is a Cheery Lynn design called “French Pastry Doily” from Dies to Die For, the Wild Roses and Sweetheart Blossom are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The charms are some of the fabulous selection available from The Ribbon Girl.
I will list the copics at the end of the post, but wanted to explain the colours, I spent quite a time choosing and experimenting with colours for the hair blue does seem strange I know but I do think it works I am really pleased with the results.
Copic Colours, I have written them in the order that I laid them down hope this helps;
Hair: C9, B99, B97, C3, C00
Flesh: E02, E01, E00, E000
Shell and Tail: R89, R85, R83, R81, RV000, RV0000
