Hi everyone and a big Hello to my lovely new followers! Hope you're all keeping well and dry - oh yes! Spring is definitely here .... along with the showers!!!
Today I'm showcasing my most recent card made for my Guest Design spot over at ABC Challenges. Their challenge this week is Bring on the Flowers!
I used this gorgeous gal called 'Spring Showers Tilly'. This fabulous image is a Simply B Stamp and you can find her here. It's the first time I have used one of these images and, wowee! .... I absolutely love her!
As I've been feeling a little under the weather recently, my embellishment mojo seems to have gone a bit AWOL! This is an extremely CAS card for me but I really enjoyed just focusing on my colouring for a change.
I thought I'd give Tilly a pretty flower shower rather than a rainy one :) I played about with Word to come up with my sentiment and then had fun and games placing Tilly in the centre lol.
A little close up of my sentiment, which I coloured up to make it look 3D. A little tricky but I think it kinda worked :) I followed Alyce's fabulous tutorial for the grass - which can be found here.
Purple Tones: V000, V12, V15, V17 Pink Tones: RV13, RV21, RV29
Turquoise Tones: BG01, BG05, BG09 Blue Tones: B00, B02, B05
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R11 Grass: G99, G94, G85, YG93
Paper pieced umbrella and bp's are from LOTV and are called Bonnets and Bowties. The flowers, ribbon and pearls are all from my stash.
