A Papertake Weekly Sneakie Peekie :)

Morning sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today xx

It’s that time of the week when we head on over to the Papertake Weekly challenge and this week our theme is

Buttons, Bows & Bling

and it’s ever so easy – you just need to include one, two or all of them in your work.


And here’s ….

… what I did.

Now if you’re thinking that you haven't seen that image before, then you would indeed be right because it’s one of the brand new Lili of The Valley Christmas images. You are sooo going to love this cute little lot and if you keep your eyes peeled on the DT blogs over the next few weeks then you’ll see lots of other sneak peeks as well.

The image I used is called

The Perfect Tree

and I coloured it with these Copics -

Skin – E000, E00, E13, R00, R02
Hair – E31, E35 
Squirrel – E07, E08, E97, E99
The rest –E23, E27, E30, E31, E35, E39, E50, E99, G99, R05, R14, R17, R27, R59, YG00, YG03, YG95 
and I outlined everything with Glamour Dust.

The papers are Lili of The Valley Simple Joys – proper Chrimbly colours these :)

I also added some Liquid Pearls to look like falling snow.

I made the tree using Dee's Distinctively - Christmas Stacker Tree Dies and did a bit of sanding on the edges!!


The bow was made using a Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – this is Finishing Touches Collection - Classic 3D Itty Bitty Bow.
And I topped it with a Wooden Star Button  from
The Ribbon Girl.

That sweet curvy sentiment is also a LOTV newbie so keep your eyes peeled for those as well.
I thought it mirrored the Spellbinders Curved Borders 1 perfectly.

If I made this again, I would add an extra white mat behind the green to make it stand out more.

So there we are all done for today.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my sneakie peekie and don’t forget to check out the other Papertake girlies cos there’s some fabulous stuff over there.

Have the best day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
