Hello everyone I hope your week is going swimmingly mine has sort of whizzed by in a blur but I think it was a good one!
The weather is dark and dreary today AGAIN and I heard on the radio this morning that tomorrow (21st) is the longest day WHAT! we've hardly had any nice weather and now the nights are going to be drawing in I guess those 5 or so days of warm weather we had a few weeks ago was our summer this year!!!!
Well after that depressing note I shall swiftly move on to show you my card. I thought I would use a Maggie for a change and went with 'summer flower tilda'. She has been coloured solely with Prisma pencils onto Kraft card. I followed the fabby sketch over at CLP challenge blog and this is what I came up with.
Image: Magnolia 'summer flower tilda'
Medium: Prismacolor pencils blended with Sansador
Papers: Prima 'botanical collection'
Dies: Spellbinders 'floral ovals'
lace/ribbon/pearls from stash
all matted onto cardstock from The Papermill Direct
I decided I wanted a double bow so used a little lace as well and I didn't have the right coloured ribbon so used my copic RV99 to colour some plain white satin ribbon.
A close up of Tilda and I so love that dark cardstock from the Papermill I think its called maroon and is such a rich sumptuous colour and goes lovely with the kraft.
Face/body: light peach, peach, burnt ochre
Dress/boots: seashell pink, dark purple, black cherry, mahogany red
Flower/wings: beige, jasmine, lime peel, kelly green
Hair: ginger root, light umber, dark brown
adding shadows and depth: 90% cool grey over the colours
