Picture 007c copy

Morning peeps and hope you are OK and especially your eyes after this post today lol. Sadly the weather doesn't quite match up to the brightness today as it is a bt on the grey side – a bit  like Tildas troosers

OK shades on peeps !!!

Over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge today we have a nice little recipe challenge for you and it is

1 Image
2 Patterned Papers (+ plain card for layering)
3 Different Types of Embellishment

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

It’s a fab prize for sure :)

And here’s me dazzle-tastic card!!

So for my 1 image …..

I coloured the Sneaky Tilda  image with Copics  in these colours -

E00, E21. R11, R20 (skin), E42, E50 (hair), Coo, C1, C3, C5, RV0000, Rv00, RV10, Y38,YR0000, YR68

and the sharp eyes will notice that these are mostly from the same list as yesterday and there is a good reason for that peeps …. yes, I had yet another senior moment and put the wrong list up yesterday – doh, sorry chicks!!!

The 2  papers are both freebies by the very beautiful Summer Driggs xxx

And the 3 embellies  I used are …

… some Prima Flowers – click the pic and it will take you straight there.

I  coloured some with with Copics and then assembled them as per this YouTube tutorial I think they look fab and ohhh so easy to do!!

Then I added a bit of ribbon and there’s a sneaky bit of the old Tilda Lace Die (which you can get over at the Simon Says Stamp Store)  peeping out :) ….

So that’s me done for today chicksies.

I hope that your retinas haven't suffered too much and I’m sure that I will be back to my pale and pastel self tomorrow

Have the fabbiest of days and hugs to all xxx
