Hello - My post to day is one of those rare "just for fun" cards. Don't get me wrong I love making any cards, stroking my paper collection and colouring the images is my favourite way of passing a day! But ... often my cards are determined or at least guided by a challenge theme or a DT creation. This is a very good thing for me as otherwise I do get overwhelmed by my ever growing stash of crafty goodness so please don't think I am complaining - I am definitely not. Some guidance of a colour scheme or a layout is always helpful in getting the creative juices flowing!
This stamping company - Stamping Bella are one of my (Many!?!) weaknesses - so it was a pleasure to create this card just because I could! I had the new image to play with and time to play. She is called Edna loved Ice Cream.
I used these fab shaped based cards from Create and Craft TV and cut panel from the Crate Paper Hello Love. I mounted this on to My Favourite Things paper Dots & Stripes Sorbet collection (Another favourite... anyone else buy two of the same pads just to make sure you have enough??) and to make the most of it I die cut the circle from the middle of the panel using a Lawn Fawn stitched circle die. I also used a Nestibilities die to cut the scalloped circle from the same paper collection and added to this a Craftworks card Happy Birthday greeting.
I glued a thin pink ribbon across the top and made a little hand tied bow - below which I added three yellow doodlebug enamel dots. Finally I added some diamond stickles onto the coloured image to make her wings sparkle.
I used these promarkers & flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice with Baby Pink cheeks.
Top, shoes & cherry - Red, Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy.
Hair & Ice Cream - Primrose, Buttercup, Pineapple Crush & Sleigh Bells.
Skirt & Sauce - Pink Mittens, Baby Pink & Carmine.
Cream - Powder blue shading.
Glass - Aquamarine - Blended and layered
I hope you like Edna and my card. I can't wait to colour her again for more creations.
