La-La Land Inspiration

Happy Monday my friends! We had a glorious week-end and I am going to confess to spending most of my time out-doors! We cleared out our garage on Saturday and now it is neat and orderly….love that! We cleaned the car and van inside and out and I started tending to my back garden. I am so happy with the perennials that I planted a couple of years ago. That investment in time, money and planning is certainly paying off. It is lovely to see the plants just growing up all on their own :) I just have to clean up the old debris and  dried stalks and the rest can take care of itself. I will buy some annuals for the hanging baskets and planters in a week or two and then get the veggies in! Lots of work but I have my boys helping me now :)

Today I was up bright and early to drop of the kids at school and then off to the dentist for my check-up and cleaning. I spent a happy afternoon wandering around down-town Montreal. It was sunny and I was in the mood to wander around. All this to say that I got hardly any crafting done and I am still behind in my posting. Hope you can forgive me :)

030 copy

This is the card I should have posted last Friday. It made it to the LLLC blog in time but not mine! Our challenge was to use wire or chain and so I pulled out some of my jewellery making tools and found some gold colored wire and added the strands for the lanterns and I even created that fun little shape at the bottom left.

I used one of our newly released images Marci with Lantern. The image comes with this fun lantern background (I have stamped it several times on my card) and the sentiment.

I used my Copic ABS to air-brush the background. I wanted to created a warm glow. Here are the Copic Markers I used to color Marci:

Skin: E000, E51, E21, R11, R12
Hair: E30, E71, E74, E77, E79
Clothes: YR02, YR04, YR09
Lanterns: Y11, Y21, Y24
Twinkling H20 Poppy Red
