Pom Tiddly Om Pom :)xxx

Morning peeps and hope you are OK xxx

Well it’s Thursday and of course it’s  time for another Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge

This week we want to see

Anything But A Square

it’s nice to get away from the usual 6 x 6  square cards (in my case anyway!!) and there’s a fab prize donated by the 2 lovely LOTV chief fairies, Lisa and Laila ….

GIFT VOUCHER

… fabulous :)

So I did a  sort of circle easel card.

Now you might have noticed that the only thing round on this blog is me usually and that’s because my pea sized brain doesn't think in circles  for some reason!! So this was wayyyy out of my comfort zone, but I think it’s a good thing to stretch yourself  occasionally.

And..…

I wasn’t too unhappy with how it turned out.

I coloured little Pom Pom (awww) with Copics in these colours -

Skin: E00, E21, R11, R20

Hair: E42, E50

Clothes etc: E0000, E00, E02, E95, YG0000, YG01, YR0000, YR00, YR20

and you can get a fab selection of these mighty pens from Tracy over at Dies To Die For

I don’t often use these colours but two things sort of lead me there.

One was this beautiful paper – it’s MME Lost & Found   Market Street & Lovely French Stripe,  which Tracy has in stock. I love that soft tangerine shade and it’s edged with a glitter border which I chopped off and used by itself. In fact, I was very mean with this paper – you know how I have this aversion to  putting scissors near any 12 x 12s – so I only used one piece of  6 x 6 for the whole card (spot the meanie!!)

The sentiment is of course chopped off a Pink Petticoat sentiment ribbon.

The other thing that  really made me want to use this colour theme was a fab box of goodies that arrived here the other day. It was my new Wild Orchid Crafts DT kit.

In it was some beautiful  vintage seam binding in one of the prettiest colours I have ever seen – cameo beige …

** NEW ** 10 PALE PINK MULBERRY PAPER POPPY FLOWERS

… and these poppies.

They are pale pink but are so softly shaded and I just had to use them. Aren’t they pretty peeps?

So that’s me card done for today. If you get a sec nip over and have a look at what the DT have done – just beautiful :)

I’ll be back tomoz with either a Tilda-ish or H&S creation. I haven’t made my mind up which one yet hence no sneak peek cos it isn't yet done. So I’m off to do that right now before the light goes. It isn’t exactly brilliant even at this time of the day so God only knows what it will be like by the time  I’ve faffed and fussed and actually got the card done.

I am not a quick crafter. In fact, I am sooooooooooooooooooo slooooooooooooow it isn't even funny!!!

Anyhoos I’ll see you tomorrow and until then, have a great Thursday and hugs to all xxxx
