Dandelion Clock...

Lili of the Valley Challenge - GDT

Hey Everbody!   Today is my third week as Guest Designer for Lily of the Valley Challenges.  I've been having so much fun and can't believe there is only one more week to go.  Boy how time flies when you're having a blast!

This week's LOTV Challenge is: Say it with flowers.  I was so excited to do this challenge because I wanted to use my favorite image from one of the newer releases.  I really hope you enjoy my card and...don't forget to pop on over to the LOTV Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has to show you!

Dandelion Clock

This adorable image from LOTV is called 'Dandelion Clock' and she's just precious.  I've had her for several weeks and have been way too busy to ink her up.  This was the perfect time! 

The dp's are new from K&Co's 'Sweet Nectar' 6x6 paper pad (Michaels carries them now and you can use a coupon...Yay!)  The colors are so vibrant...I just love them.  All of the flowers were a gift from my good friend Mindy - thank you Mindy!!!  I absolutely love the 2-tone flower and it was my very last one :-(  I made the doily using a new die from Die-Namics - love them!!!  Ribbon is from my stash and the yellow pearls are from Hero Arts.  Cs is both Bazzill and SU.  I applied some stardust Stickles to all of the flowers.

I colored this little darling primarily with Copics and then added the shadows and background using watercolor with DI's.  Here are the color details:

skin - E000, 00, 11
hair - E50, 42, 43, 44
clothes - R20, 22, 24, YG21, 23
wings & flowers - R81, 83, Y11, 21

DI's - weathered wood, tumbled glass, peeled paint, forest moss, shabby shutters, walnut stain

That's all I have for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll leave me a little note to let me know that you were here :-)
