I love this image by Krista at Saturated Canary although I love Krista's work fullstop to be fair. This one is called New Baby. I've actually done her two ways...this is the first.
After colouring in the image, using Spectrum Noir pens (TN1 & 2, EB2 for the hair, LG1 & 2 for the dress and PP1 & 2 for the baby blanket) I chose to matt and layer her with some green card I had in stock from my time with Creative Memories and a white heart doily I'd bought from Wendy at Gemini Crafts, Sutton in Ashfield. I picked up the pink of the baby blanket with smalled padded hearts and the brads I coloured in using the same pens so they blended. I used a small sequinned butterfly I also had in stock.
Last week I'd popped into Sally Twinkles in Mansfield for the first time in about 20 years. Amazing!, it's a real haberdashery (old style), lots of rolls of fabric, ribbons, fringing, tubs of buttons - everything....I was in heaven...lol I purchased a few quids worth of paper flowers and used some of them on this card.
All in all really pleased with the result of this one, really pretty.
Intend to enter her into Divas by Design Spring Colours challenge and also Paper Takes Weekly Challenge Anything Goes.
Hope you like her as much as I do

- My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.
