Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon with Wee Wyanet - DT for ALBC Challenge

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all ok?  Wow...thought I had something to complain about when it was hot but it's even worse now it's hot AND wet.  Far too hot to wear a coat and far too wet to not wear one!

Today is the start of August's Challenge over at Paula Holifield's A Little Bit Crafty Challenge and the theme for the month is Summer Sun, so a nice easy one with endless options for you all.

We have the following fantastic sponsors and prizes this month so make sure you join us:



 
$20 voucher
£10 voucher
 £15 voucher 

All the rules and information can be found here so have a read and come and join in the fun!


Anyhoo...here's my card:



Ok...so the colours went a little autumnal but haven't you ever heard of an Indian Summer?  Huh?  Lol.


Absolutely adore these new images by Wee Stamps.  This one is the fabulous Wyanet which means 'beautiful' and she is certainly that!  I really hope that Sylvia Zet (the artist) comes up with more of these little Native American Indian girls.  I already have the other ( Lomasi - meaning pretty flower) coloured up and ready to go so she'll be on a project sometime in the coming days.

So, I've coloured Wyanet with my Copics and Promarkers as follows:

Copics:  E00, E11 and E21
 Promarkers:  Baby Pink, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Satin, Cardinal Red, Ruby, Lipstick Red, Warm Grey 1, 3 and 5.  

The matting card is Papermania Textured Cardstock and the papers are from First Edition Boho Chic paperpad.  I've used some of the pad to cut the flower out of as well, using Spellbinders leaf dies and Daisy Patch dies.  

I created the sentiment on my lappy, and the faux gems are from my stash.  The gorgeous pearl brad is from Hobby House.

 Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirational cards created by the team over at the A Little Bit Crafty Challenge and then head off to do some crafting! We're all looking forward to seeing your projects.  Good luck.
