Woodland Lucy

Hi everyone! Sunday here and that means it's time for a new Anyone for Anya challenge! It's a super easy one this week...TEAL! Just make sure you use the colour teal in your projects...as much or as little as you want :)


I have used Woodland Lucy for my card this week, and have teamed her with some of my favourite papers...Gathering by Authentique which you can pick up from Craft A Lot at a great price!



I have inked all of my papers using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage photo, and have added some yummy jute ribbon, flowers, and cheesecloth which I just received from Wild Orchid Crafts. The big peach flower is from Prima, and I have used two cute flourish embellies from Make It Crafty.


I coloured Woodland Lucy up using my copic markers. I added some grass for her to sit on and some sepia coloured clouds in the background using my distress inks. I wanted to use a more neutral colour so that they didn't take away from the focus of Lucy. They don't show up so great in the photo though! Here are the copic colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E00, E53, E11, R11
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
Dress: BG01, BG05, BG09
Shoes: YR16, YR61, C3, C5, C7
Grass: YG63, YG03, Blender

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

CMC Copic Challenge - Spring Pretties
Mark's Finest Papers - Square Card
Totally Gorjuss - Swirls and Whirls (I have used some awesome swirly whirlies from Make It Crafty hehe)
All That Scraps - Sketch (I have turned the main square into a circle :)
A Gem of a Challenge - Aquamarine
Card Mad Fairy - Die Cuts/Punches
Daring Card Makers - Material Girl (I've used some cheesecloth :)

Can't wait to see all of your lovely creations! Thanks for stopping by :)
