Morning all, hope you are all well I am now getting rather excited about my trip to the US, this time next week I should be up in the air winging my way to California. As well as going to the CHA I will be visiting my Brother & Sister in Law and my 2 handsome Nephews who live in Irvine which is about 22 km away from Anaheim, it will be the first time I have ever been over to see them, my tummy turns over just thinking about it.
Its the 3rd week of the Lilis Little Fairies Challenge and this week we have a fabulous theme for you LAVENDER AND LACE, cannot believe how many of you have supported us since we started thank you all so much.
I have used Lili of the Valley stamp Hello Cup Cake for my DT card, whilst I was colouring the image I was getting really frustrated as I couldn’t get my Copics to blend as normal, thought it might have been the damp atmosphere but once I cut the image out I realised a piece of plain card had got mixed up with my Neenah card, but being a last minute crafter I didn’t have time to re-colour the image, I will check more carefully next time.
Both the backing papers are by Magnolia I have distressed the edges with my Tim Holtzs Distressing Tool and then daubed Adirondack Snowcap Paint Dabber over the paper and metal corners. Not sure where I got the Watch Charm from I am sure it was at the NEC in the Autumn. I have made the bow using Fine Cream Vintage Cluny Lace, from The Ribbon Girl
You can see better here my blending problems with the copics;
Flesh: E21, E11, E000. E000, R30
Lavenders: BV02, BV01, BV00, BV000
Greens: YG95, YG93, YG91
Browns: E43, E41, E40
No Princess Crown episode today, but I should have the final 2 pages for you tomorrow.
Another Humphrey Valentines Card from tomorrows Special deal from Crafters Companion on Create and Craft this lovely image is called Flowers for You, I have used lots of Dies and Punches and the delicious papers are from The Humphrey CD which is part of the special deal.
I am really sorry I sent the card off without taking a note of the Speccies I used.
Have a good day
