I'll try and show off more of the other stuff once in a while as we get things cleaned up and "show able" -
Now I want to show you that I have crafted - Actually this card flew out of me as soon as I got this stamp in the mail. I love this image from Little Darlings -
I think it is the look on her face, she is so happy don't you think? She is called "Up, Up and Away" you might recognize her as part of the Logo of the company :0)
Colored her with my Copics, then did some shading with pencils. A little added Viva Decor Pearl Pen for a little extra.
For my card, I went with papers mostly from Webster's Pages. I love the richness of these papers. But I also found a vintage looking cloud pattern paper in my scraps, just seemed so right to use that behind the image, right?
I cut piece of the papers, layered with a light blue card stock, sewed down with blanket stitches and straight stitches. I am not sure why I used the roses paper on this card. I just loved it so much and was working away and went with it. And just before I attached all the pieces I saw a package of French doilies on my desk, ordered them a few weeks ago and totally forgot about them. Love the doily with the roses... but here again not sure if it all goes with the hot air balloon... but hey it is a girlie card :0) And with that thinking I thought the "Live * Love * Grow" sentiment that is part of the new release "In the Garden Sentiment" set was a good choice. I believe this little lady is Living, Loving and Growing! Growing doesn't have to mean plants... A deep pink satin ribbon was all the extra it needed from there.
Here is a close up of the image, I pop dotted it on the clouds pattern paper so she is flying!!
The inside is simple with scraps from the front - but I cannot find the photo I took anywhere! grrrrrrr
Hope you enjoyed my card, I had a lot of fun with it! Make sure to visit the Little Darlings Rubberstamps web site and see all the cuteness there! Great new release too!
Here are a couple of challenges that it qualifies for :0)
