Full Of Magic :)

Picture 009c

Morning lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today xxx

And a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my pals in the jolly old US of A. Have a great time xxx

Today over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge, we have a yummy sketch for you which has been done by our very own Bev

… and here it is.

So this is my interpretation – I followed it fairly closely.

I loved this one and will use it again for sure

I also love this sweet image as well. 

Isn't she lovely peeps. I coloured her with Copics in these colours -

Skin: E00, E21

Hair: E42, E50

Clothes: C00, C1, C3, RV0000, RV000, RV10, RV21

I wanted a nice chunky boa but I just couldn't get the pic to reflect this but IRL there is lots of texture and all I did was cover the boa with a thick layer of Glossy Accents, sprinkle Polar White Flower Soft over it then straight away sprinkle Glamour Dust over it. If you do this straight away, it gets in between the Flower Soft and gives it a nice sparkle.

Not that you can tell that on this pic cos it looks a bit on the murky side I think :(

I bought these bows literally years ago from an on line  haberdashery called Josy Rose and I just went to have a look and they are still selling them. You can see them here

The blooms are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts

What a fabulous LOTV sentiment this is. It’s one of the Dreamy Days Circular Sentiments – I like to think that there is still a bit of magic left in this awful world we live in :)

The beautiful papers are of course the always wonderful  Pink Petticoat. I used Gingham (Smoke) and Lots Of Dots (Pretty). I also used the solids on the Tilda Lace borders which you can get along with your Copics from Tracy over at Dies To Die For.   I used Silver rather than Smoke as it is a slightly softer shade.

I went around the edges of the oval nestie with some Liquid Pearls which again I have had for years and all but forgotten about, but I used them recently on another card and had another go here :)

So that’s my card for today.

Soon be Friday peeps and then the weekend is almost upon us – woohoooo :)xxx

So I’ll say tarra and see you tomorrow.

Have the fabbiest of days and hugs to all xxx
