Picked Sweet

I grabbed some time last night to quickly get this card made – it’s been a manic weekend, almost glad to be going to work this morning for a rest.  It’s the last of the February release from Whimsy Stamps of Elisabeth Bell’s Cottage Cuties, this one is called Picked Sweet and for the UK girls is in stock at Dies to Die For, and for the rest of the world is available at Whimsy Stamps.  Can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get them all used, and I just know I will be using them again and again, they are just so stunning.  The sentiment is from one of my favourite Whimsy sets – Fanciful Birthday Notables 1

And I also managed to get the new Gratitude kit from Nitwit Collections used, OMW I love the colours in this kit.  So pretty!

The image has been coloured with Copics and pencils

Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000, R20, 30
Hair: E57, 53, 51, 50 light umber and black pencils
Pinks: R81, RV000, 0000 rose pale pencil
Burgundy: ER59, 56, R83 mulberry pencil
Greens: G84, 46, 20, YG63, 61 olive pencil
Plant Pot: E18, 15, 13, 11 and sepia pencil
Yellow: YR31, 20
Shadow around image muted turquoise pencil

The flowers, pearls and seam binding are all from Wild Orchid Crafts – I used a trellis rose, 25mm wild roses, 20mm roses and sweetheart blossoms.  The leaves are also from WOC

I decorated the inside to match the front and used bits from the main kit and Lil’ Bits kits for extra embellishment, and apologies for the pants picture, it was early hours this morning that I eventually got round to photographing it and the camera does not like too much white with the lights.

Not sure if I will get a card made tonight, so if I don’t I will have some Elisabeth Bell candy up for grabs Smile

Have a great week (I wish it was already over and I had my hubby back home – I am dreading tomorrow.)

hugs

  50. Hi Bev,
    I am thinking of you and hubby and praying for a speedy recovery for him.
    Your card is adorable and you would never know you had rushed it at all. The colours are so rich and yet not dark or heavy. The papers are so soft and delicate and worth every penny; I need to get back over to Nitwits and see what they have to download these days.
    Thank you for taking time out to make something to show us, I really appreciate it.
    Best wishes sweetie. Hugs Linda x
