First card of 2011

At a loose end to today all the boring houseworky things done so had a go at the latest Lili of the valley challenge This week it is a card sketch Used some lime rickey paper along with some bazzil bling cardstock in lime and teal (try as I might I just cannot get the colours to show true in the photo so eventually resorted to adjusting the contrast a bit and it looks more like the actual colours now).
 The LOTV image is coloured with promarkers and I stardust stained some Wild orchid roses to colour match them Added a sparkly flourish cos I cant resist bling.
Looking forward to the new Lotv releases on Tuesday even though I promised myself I would buy any more stamps for a while (who was I kidding?) Thanks for looking.

  5. Ohhhhhhhh gorgeous Fi. I am another who struggles with getting the right colours to show on her photographs. I try to take my pics at the same time of day on the same window ledge. But of course there are days when the light is rubbish anyhow.

    Your colouring is just devine. I keep looking at the beautiful birthday card you made me and she has such depth to her I can almost feel her in the room.
