The Little Things

Copics:
skin tones: E000, E00, E21 - hair: E30, E31, E34
the rest: YG91, YG93, YG97, E40, E41, E42
RV00, RV10, RV11, RV21, RV23, G40, G82

I still have the box of Basic Grey papers open and chose this pretty rose pattern as the backdrop for this new LOTV stamp. It comes with a darling sentiment, but I wanted to use this one by Elusive Images and make the card suitable for a birthday perhaps, rather than a Valentine. After colouring my image I inked the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, which has faded to beige overnight, then pricked and added Platinum Stickles. I think the rest is self explanatory, shout if you want to know anything, but make it loud as I'm back upstairs in my craft room working on some gorgeous new images .. .. shhh, I can't say any more just yet!

The challenges I'm linking up with are: Copic Creations to use new stuff, as well as your Copics of course. The Corrosive Challenge to use lace and pearls. Our Creative Corner to dress up the sketch. Wild Orchid Challenge to get sentimental (text on show). That'll do for now!
