Lomasi (Pretty Flower)

Hi everyone!

hope you're all ok.  I've been so busy at this end.  I've been up to something...no...not mischief for once!  All will be revealed shortly but the future's looking very exciting for me and is going to be lots of fun.  Right now this 'thing' is taking up all of my time but I have managed to create a card today.

This is the beautiful Lomasi (Pretty Flower) from Wee Stamps by the fab artist Sylvia Zet.  Absolutely loving these little girls and hope there are more to come.



I've coloured this gorgeous digi in using my Copics, Promarkers and Graph Its as follows:

Copics: E00, E11 and E21
Promarkers:  Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Caramel, Sandstone, Satin, Turquoise, Cool Aqua, Cool Grey 1 and 3.
Graph 'Its: 9400, 9401, 9402 and 9405.  They are all in the set of 12 Warm Greys and were used for the racoon.

I tried something a little different with her hair this time and tried to get a little texture in with my fine nibs (promarkers) but have managed to lose a bit too much shine, I think.  Something to work on, though.

The papers are all from Bearly Mine (one of their big CDs) and I colour picked from one of the papers for the matting layer to get a perfect match. 

Absolutely love this layout and when used with fab papers it means you need little in the way of embellies, so all I've done is cut some flowers out of one of the papers using a Marianne die set and then used some brads and a charm from my stash.

The inside is finished to match the front and the sentiment was created using my lappie.

I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:

  15. Magnificent, Lexie! Love your color combo. Any change you'll add a "Follow by e-mail" option to your blog? I am a follower but with the readers gone, I don't get here as often and really miss seeing everything you're making. I'd love to follow by e-mail, too, and get that little reminder in my mailbox each time you post. :-D
