I am GDT for By the Cute and Girly challenge blog this month and the challenge was going to be Red + 1 so my +1 is green. Not a colour combo I use very often and I don’t know why because I love how striking it is. Mind you, I think any colour looks good with green.
I have used one of the Simply Adorables digi stamps from Funky Kits. It’s the girl standing and when I did this card I could not wait for the stamps of the girls to arrive so I decided to crop the image instead of resizing it so it would give me a near enough head shot to use on the card. These digi’s are so versatile, fantastic value for money and of course are so gorgeous I am finding it difficult to leave them alone lol. I hope and pray that Sugar Nellie are going to release more of these darling images else I am going to wear out what I have rofl. The sentiment is Katie Pertiet for Autumn Leaves.
The papers are K & Co 6 x 6 Classic K McKenna (still my all time favourite paper pad). The flowers are a combination of 15mm roses and cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts and velvet hydrangeas by Petaloo that I got off Ebay. I popped a rhinestone spacer and pearl brad in the centres of the flowers for a bit of bling. I also fixed one of the velvet hydrangeas in the centre of the seam binding bow.
This little poppet has been coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.
Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20; Hair: E53, E51, E50; Reds R29, R25, R22; Greens G82, G40, G20 then I used burnt umber pencil on her hair, crimson lake and warm grey 80% on the reds and olive green on the greens.
