Little Lili Fairies...

Oh gosh four days on the trot whatever next!!....

Well today the weather is fine and dandy with the french windows open and the light coming in I thought, Mmmm how about some colouring! Now I use a variety of colour mediums and have to confess that copics are my ultimate faves quick and easy to use for me,... But my watercolouring has taken a bashing since and i can't seem to find a happy medium, I am also stuggling with the distress pads, but am not gonna let it beat me, so today I set about using them to colour the cutey ickle lilli of the valley images, I also wanted to join in the LOTV challenge they have too, a fabbi sketch by Bev, now I love all the flowers everyone uses and this sketch had them on, But again another thing i struggle with, having them on my simple cards, they just dont seem right and I pull them off and then feel like plain jane! I persevered today so as to give the sketch some justice!!
stash used:

Stamps: Lili of the valley, sentiment Happy moments SU
