Firstly, I had a nice surprise the other day as the lovely Emma made me blog of the week on her fabulous Emma's Hints, Tips and Crafty Inspiration so pop across and take a peep. Thank you Emma...I've been so excited.xx
Hope you're all ok and keeping busy. I certainly am. Have lots going on at the moment but managed to get some crafting done...sadly not crafting I've been able to show you at the moment. Watch this space, though, as Heather's coming up with some fabulous digis which we're all (the Sunshine Girls) going to be showcasing very soon. I, for one, am really excited about them and can't wait until we can show them off.
In the meantime, I've finally got around to playing with one of Heather's fabulous Flower Pot Pretties Digis which she's been working on for the last few weeks. I've elected to use Holly as she's so adorable and I need to crack on with some Christmas cards, though there are plenty of other adorable Flower Pot Pretties to choose from. They are only available from the Lacy Sunshine store, so head over and take a look.
Anyway...here's little Flower Pot Pretties Holly, isn't she a cutie?
Absolutely loving little Holly, especially as she's pretty quick to colour as well.
I've coloured her using a few copics and my Promarkers as listed below:
Skin: Copics E00, E11, E21 and Promarker Baby Pink
Lips: Baby Pink and Antique Pink
Hair: Caramel, Sandstone and Satin
Eyes and other green areas: Forest Green, Bright Green and Meadow Green
Reds: Crimson, Berry Red and Lipstick Red
Yellows: Gold and Pastel Yellow
Browns: Walnut and Cocoa.
The papers I have used came from a little pad which was free with one of the mags either last year or 2011. Sorry..not much help there, lol.
The matting card is green Papermania Textured Cardstock.
The sentiment and gold metal holly leaves are from my stash. And that's it. A really quick an easy card. When the artwork's as good as Heather Valentins, you really don't need or want to add more otherwise the beautiful artwork would be smothered.
Hope you like Holly and her friends as much as I do. The Flower Pot Pretties have their own page on the Lacy Sunshine store and more will be appearing soon. They come in a set of both jpg AND png so that you can use them how you like including creating little scenes with them.
I have entered this card into the following challenges:
