Sugar Nellie

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.

  18. Hi Bev
    love your card, I agree with you the digi-images are fab, and also VERY good value for money.Love your colours you have used. I have just coloured Grace with turquoise & red, and she looks good in those colours (in fact I think she looks good in MOST colours) lol.
    I am like you I don't seem to be able to stop using these images (could be that 3 of them are so like 3 of my granddaughters), in fact I wouldn't be surprised if they hadn't been modelled on the 3 of them rotfl.
    I hope Amy is well on the road to recovery.

  25. WOW, Bev! This card is so special! I love the colour combo and all the embellies as well as the wonderful colouring, of course! I downloaded these images a while back and, whilst printed, they still haven't been coloured yet - need to get my act together because I keep seeing them on others blogs and drooling over them but they're not appearing on my blog at all! So many images, so little time!
