Hi there sweet peeps and hope all is well in your world today :)
The snotting and sniffing is still there but is reducing so things are in the up I feel. I’m still coughing like a good ‘un but even that isn't as bad as it was, thankfully
So after our little 2 week break, the Lili Of The Valley Thursday challenge gang are back and some of the DT are giving you little sneakies of the 2nd Christmas Release from Lili of the Valley which will be on sale on the website from the 6th September. Also, the Lili of the Valleys Ideas to Inspire blog are featuring the new releases as well so if you want to see what’ coming next, nip and check it all out.
So we are back with the challenges and as always, the lovely Lisa and Laila have given a £10 voucher to spend itn the shop …
… and our challenge this week is a sketch by our very own Pops.
And here it is :)
I loved this sketch and will use it again most deffo.
So here’s what I did with it – no tinkering today, I just stuck to it as it is :)
I used Festive Fairy and as per the above, she will be available on 6th September, so not long to go now (I put an extra big pic of her at the top so you can see all the lovely detail in the image).
I did the Copics thing and used these colours -
E000, E00, E21, R20 (skin), E41, E42, E50 (hair), B0000, B00, B02, C00, C1,, C3, C5, YG000, YG01. YG03 (the rest)
and then I added some deets with polychromos pencils.
The papers are all from Nitwits.
An elaborate little deccie here :)
I used a large and medium retro punch and topped it off with a blingy bloom that I found in the ribbon box!! The beautiful 40mm white cotton lace is from The Ribbon Girl and the ivy leaves and red berries are both from Wild Orchid Crafts.
So there we are all done.
One of these days I’ll put a tutorial on here to show how to make those embellies – trust me, if I did it now with all the coughing and spluttering, it would put you off your food quite frankly!!!!
So I am off to finish off some bits and bobs and don't forget that if you haven’t joined in with the SSS hop, you can see the post here – it would be a shame to miss out me darlins :)
Before I go I’ll leave you with a sneak peek of the pinkness that will be in here tomoz – we haven't done pink for a while for some reason – not sure why really!!!
So enjoy the rest of your day and see you manana.
Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
