Finally Submission.....

to the Stamping Bella DT challenge.  I can't believe this is it, my final chance to give it my all!
So today I share with you - Peony Bittybloom.

Isn't she adorable! I love how she turned out. I stamped Peony on Bella's Bestest Paper with Black Memento ink.  I visioned her colored in mauves and wanted to use some of the Basic Grey Wisteria paper that I have been hoarding!! I have a serious problem with the hoarding thing, I have to break out of that habit. LOL!

Okay back to the card.  I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I did the skin tones using Copics E000, E00, E01 and E11. Used nestie labels #13 to cut her out.  The dark layer under the image is actually dark purple, but looks black in picture (hmmm!). Next I added some grass under her feet. (still need lots of practice on the grass!).  I used a Martha Stewart Pansy border punch, thought it went really well with my papers. Added glitter to her dress and center of her flower (hat).  Finished it off with some stitching and an organza baby blue bow!

Well how is that for my finale!

Have a great weekend!
