Spots and stripes

Hello lovely people,

I have everything crossed that Blogger does as he is told and posts this for me while I am still in bed after going to see Muse at the Ricoh stadium in Coventry last night :-)

Next up, thank you to Donna and Nat for becoming my latest followers - so lovely to have you along!

And eventually on to the main business; my DT card for Lili's Little Fairies and the theme this week is 'Spots and Stripes' - easy peasy right?  I have done a masculine card this week which is so not my forte, but this LOTV image made it a breeze to make  :-)

I have let the DP and image do most of the work here and only added a little twine and button for embellishment.

I have used an image from one of the new LOTV sketch pads, and wow, these are totally amazing.  They are such good value at £6 for 30 images and give you a really nice selection of images to work with.  The card is a lovely weight and the images colour up beautifully with my Copics.

Card recipe;
DP: Simple Stories Documented
Sentiment: Personal Impressions Big Sentiments
Twine/button: from stash

Copic colours;
Jack: E41/81/42, YR30 (R000 for paws)
Cake: W00, YR30, Y0000 (E81 for spots)
Red spots/cake filling: R27/29/37
Candles: B93/95 & YR23/27

Do check out the creations from the rest of the Fairies and then break out those spots and stripes and join in our challenge for a chance to win £10 to spend over at My Crafty Heart.

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx
