Wee Love You Bunches
I have another Wee lass to share with you today, this little girl is called Thanks a Bunch and is available as a digi from the Wee Stamps digi store, or in rubber from Whimsy Stamps, and here in the UK from Bunny Zoe's Crafts. I've coloured her with my Copics and fancied some bright cheerful shades to cheer me up!
I've used some of the spring green shades from the Spring Chic paper pack but got a bit stumped when it came to my floral embellishments .. .. I wanted bright colours but also didn't want to detract from the cute image, plus trying to mirror the shape of the flowers as well ... .. so in the end I diecut these ones. It's growing on me - a bright cheery spring card that I could use as a thank you, just because, birthday or even Mother's Day - hence the Happy Wishes circle rather than a specific text greeting. To finish I added the scrap of pink gross grain ribbon with a little button centre and the pearls for the centres of the flowers.
For the diecuts - all Marianne of course - I used:
Fancy circle with inked embossed areas as well as the scallop mat behind my image cut with LR0141
Flowers from LR0105 and LR0107 with centres from CR1210
Swirls from LR0111 and leaves from LR0162
For inking the embossed areas and edges of my papers I've used Tea Leaves Versamagic chalk ink. I get on better with the chalk inks than with the Distress Inks as I find it less likely that I'll over-ink, plus I like the soft opaque effect they give.
I'll enter my card into the Sweet Stampin' blog challenge for pearls and swirls, and the Addicted to Stamps challenge have the same theme, and at Bunny Zoe's Monthly challenge it's for flowers and pearls.
