Good morning peeps,
First of all I want to wish my niece Gemma a very Happy Birthday :)
I am keeping my fingers crossed that the weather men/women have got the forecast right and we are at last going to start having Summer here in the UK. My garden has gone wild with all this rain and I am itching to get out there and have a potter among the flowers as it's looking so pretty.
Today I have a GDT card for
and this week for inspiration Friday the DT are showcasing the new CHA release images & dies.
My card today is very different for me as the colours are much brighter than I usually use. I am trying to be good and rummage through my stash and use up some of the papers & flowers I have amassed & also use other neglected items such as embossing folders & dies.
Medium - Copics
Papers - Basic Grey, Sweet Threads & Raspberry Road (paper piecing)
Flowers - Hooked On Craft & Wild Orchid
Metal Corner - e-crafts
Pearls - Melissa Frances
Doily, butterfly & lace - stash
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin E11, E00, E00, R20, E93, hair E35, E33, E31, E30 hat & leggings R85, R83, R81, sunglasses, earrings & flipflops R27, R24, R22 lolly YR42, YR23, YR21 bag E53, E51, E50 / RV63, RV00 top paper pieced & shaded with C1, C00
