Peach, Dark Peach and Lemon

Well this card has definetely been a challenge for me and not least the taking of the photos. I started this card yesterday morning and have only just finished it.

The original inspiration came from the Jorunn at the WOJ Inspirtation Blog and I suggest if you want to see it done well you should hop on over there!

This card was a whole host of 1st's for me (and probably lasts lol.
The gorgeous images are all from Whiff of Joy 1001 Nights and this was the first time I had inked them.

Now as you may know yesterday the sun was shining and it was a too good a day to spend it indoors, so I decided to craft outside in my bikin (Good job I have very high fences lol) but there I hit my first problems it was too hot to use my copics they bled like mad - and my watercolours were drying too quick to do any sort of shading so I tried to do some colouring with Derwent pencils and blender pencil - looks like I need loads of practise. (although they look a bit beter IRL probably cos its no so close up and enlarged).

I then thought I would be well clever and use a sewing machine on the papers Umm not too clever obviously - that was soo hard to keep the papers straight in the machine they kept sliding off in every direction hence lines that are just sooooo not straight and these ones are about the 10th try! Something else to practice?
The flowers are also part of the set from WOJ which I stamped and coloured loads of times sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and then shaped and layered them. Have to say I was pleased how they turned out.

These gorgeous swirls I cut on my CraftRobo and were a freebie from Lisa Jane at Filekutz and the papers are a mixture from Raspberry Road and Donna at Bearly Mine Designs
