Morning peeps and hope everyone is ok xxx

Today over at Papertake Weekly we have a sketch challenge as it’s the last one of the month –  where did February go????? I cannot believe we are in March soon!!!

We are sponsored by the very wonderful Simon Says Stamp so as always we have a fab prize up for grabs :)


And this month's sketch is …..

… this bad boy here!!

So I thought I would do something a little different today – even though I seem to have gone back to the bright vibrant red and black colour combi again

Firstly, there is not a Copic in sight.  Well there is but more of that in a sec!!

I used one of the Lili Of The Valley Cute Squares  - I used Party Girls - and decided to have a go at that there pyramage thingy. These squares make it ohhhh so easy and I quite like the fact that it is a bit different.

Some things don’t change though cos I sprinkled the old Glamour Dust over her skirt.

So here’s where the Copics went.

I didn't have any black pearlies left so I coloured some white Wild Orchid Crafts ones with a black Copic pen!! You cannot see from this pic but they don’t half shine.

The papers are a mixture of Pink Petticoat,  a Jak Heath freebie (thank you Jak xxx) and a pink piggy special ie I punched some red circles out and stuck them willy nilly onto some black card.

And there’s another thing different as well …

Did you notice that there isn't a single bloom in sight!!!

I tried to see if I could make just one card without adding any (sad aren't I!!)

There has to be ribbon though – that is a step too far!!!

This is gorgeous Dawny.... see you don't need flowers. I have to admit I am lost if I don't put them on my cards, but this proves you can make a FAB card without them. Love the dramatic colours and detail xx

Love your red circles on the black paper - was wondering where you bought that excellent paper!!!
Your card is just the cutest!! I love the pyramid thing - just wonder if I could possibly bring myself to use something I hadn't coloured myself?
LOVE the effect though - totally awesome card.
