Lucy In The Garden

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers I hope that you are all OK after the awful weather last week it was so so cold. Its Wednesday so the launch of a new monthly challenge over at Crafting by Designs and as always our monthly challenges are Anything Goes.

We have  two sponsors this month

Prize - choice of 3 digi images


For my Design Team card I used a pretty stamp called Lucy In The Garden and I painted her with my Copic Pens that I've not used for a while.  I still prefer my Derwent Inktense Pencils but thought I'd have a change. I do still like the softer colours and colour blend  the pencils give.  I also  prefer painting with proper paint brushes.

Card Recipe

Flower Shaped card from Craftwork Cards
White Flower embossed card is from Jelly Bean Crafts
Stamp is Lucy In The Garden from Sasayaki Glitter painted with Copic Pens
Black flower paper is from a Docrafts pad I think came free in a magazine a while ago
Spellbinder circle die and the frame die I got from eBay
Pearl flowers are from Brenda's Lace and  Ribbon Specials Facebook shop
Grey Viva pearl pen for the centre of the flowers
