Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 138 - Sweet & Simple

Good Day to You All

I hope you have all had a good week and you are looking forward to the weekend.

Our challenge this week over at Totally Gorjuss is "Sweet & Simple" and our fabby sponsor this week is the one and only Lili of the Valley.  So to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in their shop we want to see all your Sweet & Simple designs.  As always, make sure you check out what the incredible DT ladies have made for your inspiration over at the Totally Gorjuss site.

Here is the card that I have made:

Ain't she "Sweet"?

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Tiddly Inks Wryn Blooms
Sentiment:  Created on my computer and printed under the picture

Image coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30
Hair:  E37 E35 E34 E33
Dress & Shoes:  BV04 BV02 BV01 / R85 R83 R81
Flowers:  BV04 BV02 BV01 / R85 R83 R81 / C2 C1
Leaves:  G46 G43
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

And that's it - "Simple"!  "Sweet and Simple."  To finish off the card I have stitched around it with my sewing machine.

One other picture of the inside for you:

And there you have it.

I hope you can join in the fun with us.

Stay safe and have a great weekend.

Oooooo gorgeous card Hazel.
This is right up my street as I love the simpler style as the whole focus is on the image, and when the colouring is as perfect as yours then that's where the focus should be.
Sweet image too

Enjoy your weekend Hazel

Lou said...

I found your blog today - I don't know how i could ever have missed it, it is amazing your colouring is fabulous and I just love how you always list the copics you have used that is soooo helpful for us amateurs, I have just spent the last 2 hours looking through your old posts and enjoyed drooling over your wonderful cards so much, I have never used digi papers but after seeing some of your makes I have decided to go shopping at the basic grey digi shop! I also fell in love with your bigshot pro – I haven’t seen that before and my bigshot is my favourite crafty tool so I can see a pro being put on my ever growing wish list. I just wanted to say I know how much effort and time it takes to keep a blog up to date, and to include all the details like you do must take up lots of your crafting time much it is very very much appreciated and I will be making lists of some of your colour combinations to use to improve my colouring Keep up all the hard work I will be a regular stalker now and look forward to seeing your future creations Thank you for the inspiration hugs Lou x
