Hello my friend, how are you? I hope you're having a smashing week... mine is a lovely one, but unfortunately the most of the kids have flu, or sore throat.. so not much swimming this weekfor them :) We stayed here today, and while they painted, and made cards, I finished this; which I has started yesterday. It is for Sugar Bowl. Gayle made a lovey sketch this week. I loved it as it left ample room for embellies, swirls ans flowers :)
Thank you Debbie for this gorgeous image, I really had fun colouring her :) I used distress Inks, and focused mainly on pinks and greens. Okay, I know, it hasn't been long since I used this combo, but I like it, and I thought that it suited her :))
The papers I used is Basic Grey Porcelain, and the glittered green are from Doodlebug. They are really yummy!!
This is a close up to show you the glitter on the papers, and shiny shoes and bow with Stickles.
To embellish I used primas and also some mini flowers on her hat and the flowers in the basket. Then I added small pearls to the centres. I love how they look. On the side of the image I added some more pearls, and a tag for sentiment.That is from K& Co tins. In the middle of the bow, I also used a hatpin with some white and green pearl beads, and a small spacer. Finally i added some Stickles on her shoes and belt, and a swirl die cut in the corner.
As for the inside I used complimentary papers, added a computer-generated message, and embellished with tags and flowers. Sorry these were in my stash, can't remember the name. I also decorated the jotting piece with Papermania Ribbon Sticker. I think it goes well with all the other papers etc.
I hope you are well, happily crafting and having some relaxing time this Summer. I try my utmost to make some me- time as well :) Thank you for any comment you choose to leave. It's always a blessing to find you've been here, seeing what I've done.
