This week on Cute Card Thursday we are looking forward to signs of spring, so it seemed appropriate to use this new cute image, 'a spring thing', from Kim at Cuddly Buddly available in both digi and rubber.
I've coloured my image with Copics, but I'm sorry I don't have a list of colours for you as it was a few weeks ago I made her for the Cuddly Buddly stand at the SEC craft fair this weekend. In real life you will see that her stripy tights are pink and cream, I do have problems photographing pale pink and it is a colour I like to use a lot. The papers are digi designs by Cuddly Buddly and I've inked the edges with Spun Sugar DI then added Stardust Stickles. The lacy circle is a Nellies die cut I've embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then inked, the greeting is from a new set of stamps and the embellishment is a mix of Marianne die cuts, Nellies punch and emboss butterflies and Martha Stewart punched leaves. I've finished off with pink gems and hearts to make it a real girly creation - just right for the Sweet Stamping blog challenge! The Allsorts challenge is to make your own flowers, I've mixed up the die cuts to create mine. Fab 'n' Funky have a spring theme and so do the Everybody Art challenge blog.
I'm scheduling this post as I'm still not feeling brilliant - but hopefully will be back amongst you all very soon.
