SWEETPEA DT INSPIRATION

Today I am sharing a card front made using Karen Middleton's Rag Dolls collection called  LITTLE DAISY. (This stamp is also available as a plate of four stamps, Sheet 2, Plate 114.  I have to admit that the card I had planned to make was one using the gorgeous new Mermaid stamps from Elisabeth Bell but I just couldn't find any papers I liked to make the card having coloured the image first.  May be that will be next week's post!




Back to this project I coloured the image with Watercolouring pencils and used stickles glitter glue to highlight the wings and daisy.  I have just made the card front as I am thinking of making into a Trinket box and hadn't got any heavy duty cardboard to make the box.  So will show the finished box and a future posting.




The papers were from Bo Bunny probably an old collection as I found them buried in the back of a cupboard.




Techniques:

Medium:  Watercolour Pencils, Stickles glitter glue, Distressing ink
Papers:   Bo Bunny
Dies used:    Spellbinders rectangle for Sentiment and frame
Embellishments:   Pearl swirl embellishment, Various flowers, Brads, Clear gems, Butterfly transfers
