The image is from Lily Of The Valley last release which made me break my spending embargo. Just too cute and totally reminds me of my 20-month old twirling in front of the mirror sporting floppy hat and my handbag!
The colouring is a bit different today, I felt the need to step away from Copics for a little while and boost my creativity by playing with other mediums. So I used Derwent Inktense pencils with water. Those pencils are great, wonderfully intense colours and very rich in pigment. What I especially like is that they become waterproof once dry and thus layering different shades and colours is a total joy!
The card is a bit smaller than usual, 5x5 inches. Scalloped base is from Papermania, papers from OA Thrift Shop pad. I kept the layout very simple, taking care to place the image and sentiment into the sweet spots(top left and bottom right areas). Letter stickers are from OA as well and the only embellie I used is some Dew Drops.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin - Clean and Simple
Polka Doodles - Fathers Day
Papertake - ice cream flavors (strawberry, honeycomb, pistachio)
Totally Gorjuss - sugar and spice
The Shabby Tea Room - inspirational photo and stripes
Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
