Like a lot of crafters out there, I was waiting for the new release of Simply Adorable and I've got to say this one is my absolute favourite.

It didn't matter how tired I felt I just had to push through it!

I decided to go for Monochrome plus one other colour and since the colouring of the image is quite dramatic I went quite simply with just the black and white backing papers.

I will just add that I did dry emboss a square frame but unfortunately most of it has been lost under the other embellishments.



Copics, Prisma (added to face) and Polychromos (hair and shading)
Gouache - highlights
Fine liner pen - borders
Black soot distressing ink for leaves
Glitter spray and varnish (Crafters Companion)


Co-ordinates black texture and Neenah cardstock (white) (Crafters Companion)

Embossing folders

Mandella board - dry embossing

Dies used:

Cuttlebug - leaf
Magnolia - doily flowers and flourish
Marianne - decorative corner


Faux brads (QVC)

Best wishes,
