A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

All the B's

Hiya ladies, hope you are all keeping super well and happy! :)

Today I am sharing a card I have made for the Saturated Canary Challenge #26 and the theme is to add a minimum of two items beginning with 'B' ....... only I think I may have gone a little overboard with the B's but, hey, it was fun doing it! :)

My B's are:  Blue, Black, Bow, Buckle, Blossoms, Baby's Breath, Butterfly and Button. This stunning image, called 'Zoe' was created by the lovely Krista Smith of Saturated Canary to be used in conjunction with a fabulous E-Book tutorial by Zoe from Make It Crafty called 'Colouring Long Hair in Fine Detail'.  I actually bought this book exactly one month ago ..... but was a little too scared to try it!  I could also maybe add 'Braving the Beautiful Brown locks' as more B's??? ;) 

Well, this is how my attempt has turned out ...... I guess it needs a little lot more work at it but, for now, I'm happy that I've finally given it a go! :)

The gorgeous background papers are from the Papermania Capsule Collections from docrafts and matted onto black pearlescent cardstock.  The lovely little blossoms are from, once again, WOC.  I used a baby's breath flower to immitate a fascinator in Zoe's hair :), white netting within the ribbon buckle and the same netting to make a separate bow - attaching a little button from my stash!  The beautiful butterfly I bought from The Range.


Well, I guess I should head off to get this little make submitted to the challenge ..... before I'm too late!

Wishing you all a great rest of the day, thanks heaps for stopping by :)
