Sweet Blossom ♥

I'm such a bad girl! I don't make many cards at the best of times, but when I do then maybe I should remember to actually post them on here! I did post the card on Facebook and meant to put it straight on here too but something popped up and then I forgot..it's my age and my scatter brains.

I coloured this image the last time I was off work, I was feeling guilty that she'd sat in a box for so long being neglected.


The image is Sweet Blossom, a Wee stamp by Sylvia Zet for Whimsy. As always, she's coloured with a mix of DI re-inkers and markers. The gorgeous papers are Inkido - another of my favourite sets of papers!
Embellishments: A Doo Hickey heart flourish, a tiny punched flower (I think I might just remove that pearl and replace it with a yellow one to match the flowers on the image) and an MFT butterfly.
The sentiment is from WMS....sometimes we all need a great big hug :)

Thanks for looking.
Love

  19. Shame on you for almost forgetting to show us this stunning card! ;)

    Your coloring is so perfect, I just love your technique, how you get the colors so light but yet with so deep shadows.

    Beautiful papers and layout, and I also love how you always use the sentiments so beautifully. I can never make room for them on my cards. :p
    Gorgeous dies too.

    Hugs, Anne.

  29. Hmmm - thought I'd left a comment here but obviously not. Your use of those colours with Kraft for the matting is terrific - doesn't Kraft & Duck Egg work well together? The way your little die-cut echoes the leaves on the image is terrific &, as always, your soft colouring is a delight to behold.
