Wild Wednesday...



GOOD MORNING...

Now...  it's my turn to set the challenge over at Club Anya & Friends today and this Wednesday it's another colour theme but something a little sweet..
 
Pink Chocolate Roses...

Yes we would love to see pink, brown and rose colours on your creations, here's my card using the adorable Nahla from the fantastic Roll Call set,



I went for some very old paper in my paper tower, this is one of the first collections I purchased ages ago but it's nice to give it another lease of life and I thought the colours would be lovely and subtle for the challenge! Totally inspired by Mercy's fantastic Sketch and I experimented with my stitched ribbon by pulling the top thread to create my very own custom made no sew ruffle. The embellishment is shrink plastic stamped with the spotlight set butterfly. If you haven't guessed already... I may have coloured her using my copics ha ha ha!
She really reminds me of Maoleidigh, super cute innocent eyes and that unruly curly hair. We are trying to grow sunflowers... which she insists need picking and putting elsewhere (way before the shoot is and inch tall.. LOL)


Supplies: Patterned Paper: SassafrasLass: in stitches;
Stamps: The Greeting Farm: Roll Call set; Spotlight set;
Ink: Memento & archival: black; Copic: markers*; distress inks: spun sugar; inkessential: white pen:
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities: labels 8; WRMK: corner chomper;
Other: adhesive stones, shrink plastic, stitch ribbon; 3D foam;


*Skin: E000, 00, 11, 13 & R20, eyes: B21, Hair: E35, 51, 50, Outfit: RV23, 34, R000, E71, 74, Y32, 35, I used my colourless Blender throughout!!!

So, seeing as I participated in WOYWW last week I thought I would show you the mess I have to clear up today after my little creativity yesterday....


I had to hide a few things as they're for magazine article... but this is the main working area of my desk and there's certainly loads to see, bits and bobs everywhere ha ha ha!!! Ooo look at my new ink blending tool holder, not sure it will stay there. Such a fab thingy, I have writen the colours onto the blending foam but (as I found out you will need to heat set it or it will contaminate your work Big Time). I still have acrylic paints and medium sat on my desk since the painting I did a few months ago tut tut. Also I see a stack of stamps to put away.. I'm hoping to nose round a few more desks this week,

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day BiG HuGs Kim :)

Kim, this is SO cute! I love how you have colored Nahla and you are right those papers are perfect with her and the challenge! I was admiring the ribbon - thanks for telling how you did it! It's so fun to find out an embellishment you love is easily doable at home (with no extra trip to the craft store!) That butterfly is fab, too! Probably one of my fave ever shrinky dink embellishments! :-)Traci
