New Challenge LHOSM - Anything Goes

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and aren’t affected by the horrendous rain and flooding we are having in the U.K.

We have our first challenge of the year at LHOSM and it’s an easy and popular theme of Anything Goes. Our wonderful sponsor this time is the Ribbon Girls, you could win a fantastic £10 voucher to spend in their lovely shop.

I thought New Year Sakura Tilda (another Christmas pressie for me) would fit the bill nicely, although I think she could easily be used throughout the year. She has been coloured using Copics and a few highlights added with Prisma Pencils. I haven’t made an easel card for a while, so I cut the card shape using a Go Kreate die (Large Frame Flower #1) and used Maja papers to cover it. The gorgeous Branches and Bird Cage are Joy dies. The leaves are a Cheery Lynn die and last but not least the tag is a Magnolia DooHickey die. The corners are made from a Silicone mould using Martha Stewart Air Drying Clay.  The lace, ribbon and flowers are from my stash.

Copics I used:

Skin: E21, 00,000
Hair: E44, 42, 41, 40, 50, 000
Clothes: R59, 56, RV34, 32
Shoes: E43, 42, 41, 40
Flowers: R85, 83, RV000, BG99, 96, 93

Pencils: Black, Tuscan Red, Burnt Ochre, Dark Umber

If you get a chance pop over and take a peek at my teamies creations, they are gorgeous!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thank you for popping in.
