Pearls and Lace

Our theme for this fortnight at Dream Valley, is Pearls and Lace and we are lucky enough to be sponsored by the fabulous Saturated Canary!!

As you know, I LOVE Krista's images and chose Roses are Red, Violets are Blue as my design image. I thoroughly enjoyed colouring her luscious long hair, her outfit and the beautiful flowers.....I even added some grass! I used my polychromo pencils which, I must admit, have been slightly neglected of late, but it was good to use them again. I love building up the colour and adding the shading....very therapeutic!!

With the Pearls and Lace theme, I thought I might make something more vintage in style, but I've remained true to my preferred style and kept it reasonably clean. The paper is from Forever Friends Kraft collection - loving the colours and patterns in this pad! I have used rafia lace, one pearl and my pearl wand to add the details to the Spellbinders Foliage leaves and the butterfly trail. The butterfly is Clearly Besotted Butterfly Wish Additions and die. Oh, and I've added some text to the flower using my Inkylicious Tiny Text stamp and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

So, what will you make for us this time? I'm looking forward to viewing your projects.
