Hope you're all ok on this lovely Sunday morning? Why lovely? Well because it's the start of a new challenge over at Lacy Sunshine, of course! And this time we have another fab theme which is 'Favourite Colour Combo.'
Remember that you don't have to use a Lacy Sunshine digi to enter, but you will get two goes in the Random selector instead of just one per entry if you do. All entries MUST contain a hand coloured digi or stamped image and be a finished product. So...please shoot over to the http://lacysunshinechallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/ to take a look at our fabulous Sunshine Girls inspiration! They've all outdone themselves this week and I'm sure you'll agree that they've come up with great cards using Heather's digis.
Anyhoo...here's my card for Challenge #2:
I've used Heather's beautiful (one of my absolute favourits) Eleanor & Wanda digi for this card. It's only available at her Lacy Sunshine store. ALL of Heather's digis are ONLY available there officially. Anyone else selling them or giving them away is doing so illegally. Shame on them!
I've coloured this digi (did I tell you it was a favourite of mine) using my Promarkers and a couple of Copics as follows:
Skin: Copics E00, E11 and E21
Hair: Caramel, Sandstone and Satin
Pink Bits: Antique Pink, Baby Pink and Blender
Lips: Antique Pink and Baby Pink
Eyes: Marine, Turquoise and Cool Aqua
Purple Bits: Plum, Purple, Amethyst and Orchid
Wanda: Shale, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon and Caramel.
Bones on Boots: Putty
I have a few favourite colour combos but this time I've gone for brown, pink and just a touch of purple.
I've used brown Core'dinations card and distressed it lightly for an aged effect.
I've used distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo to distress the topper image (edges anyway) and the roses (from Wild Orchid...link in sidebar). The bow is from my stash. The sentiment reads 'I will love you forever and a day' and is an Anna Griffin stamp from a set. The paper is from Kanbans Antique Tapestry kit.
And there you go...a fancy easel with Eleanor & Wanda. Have to admit to hankering after a giant Wanda cuddly sitting on my bed. She's adorable and I'm really hoping Heather will do more featuring her. Jamie loves her and Waldo as well and he'd love them to be real!
So, head over to The Lacy Sunshine Challenge and join in the fun! Oh...almost forgot to say...Heather's feeling generous so has decided to keep the prize at $30 to spend at her digi store! How incredible is that? Not only that but Heather has also decided that the Top Three will get to choose 2 digis (not precoloured or retiring) from the store as well! Yay!
