More Challenges

I've been missing the time which allowed me to do lots of blogging and enter lots of challenges.
So I'm entering this card into a number of challenges.

Inky Impressions - "Add Flowers"
Challenge Up Your Life - Challenge #30 "Easel Card
Dotties World Challenge - "Anything Goes"
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Challenge #128 "Relish to Embellish
Totally Tilda Challenge # 8 - "Pink and Pearls"

The image is fast becoming one of my favourites "Brother and Sister"

They are coloured using Copic markers:

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R20
Tilda's Hair: E43 and E71
Edwin's Hair: C1; C3 and B60
Edwin's Top: E50; E51 and E53
Edwin's Dungarees: YG91, BG93; R00; R11 and R20
Shoes: E31; E35; E57; C1 and C3

Tilda's Dress: R00; R11; R20 and R22
Tilda's Shoes: R00; R11; R20; C1 and C3

  The paper is from Basic Grey "Charming Sugared" matted onto an olive green cardstock.

I've used the heavily glittered Papermania "Antique Roses" stickers to embellish.

The figures are set against a heart of glittered vellum.

The card is finished with a green organza ribbon, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and flat backed pearls.

I love the pink pearl hearts used to compliment the flowers.

Aawwhh don't you just love this pair, I've fallen head over heals in love.  I love the miniature little pearls on her shoes and in her hair.

Well I'm going to have a surf around the Internet to see if I can find anymore challenges.

I have more commission work to do this weekend, easel cards for a little girl's first birthday and a 21st birthday, so I'm going to be very busy.

Thanks for reading,
