Baby Buttercup

Friday again, and another 3 day weekend! Woohoo! The 3rd Monday in February  has been declared "Family Day"  here in Ontario, so I have the day off.  Gotta love it. 

This weeks challenge was a sketch done by our video babe Ebru. I love this sketch, I can see me using it over again. I am in much need of baby cards for my 'sale basket', so I pulled out Baby Buttercup to colour up this week.  Based on the image I knew it would be a perfect fit for the oval in the sketch.

As always, stamped onto bellas' bestest paper and colored with Copics and pencils.  Yes you heard me, I pulled out the copics.  Basically what I did, was colored the skin tones, E000, E00, E01 then for the leaves I just did a base coat in G40 and for the baby's outfit I used R20.  Then I coloured with my pencils (prismacolor).  I found it much easier to blend the colours for some reason.
After cutting it out I sponged some versamagic pixie dust around the image leaving the die in place.  Then layered this onto a piece of pink c/s cut out with the scallop die. DP is from DCVW called Nana's Nursery. This piece I used has glitter already on the little pink flowers, it's so pretty. Finishing touches - stitched around the squares, added  pearl baubles  to the corners ( I don't see pearl baubles on the website, but there are many other colours to choose from) and  some glitter on the leaves.

Based on next weeks challenge, I think you will have no problem playing along.
The theme is " Ink what you have not used" now how much easier can that be. If your anything like myself, you probably have lots of stamps that have not seen ink.  Hmmm wonder what I will colour?  Email your submission to Emily by thursday night to play along and be included in a draw for some bella bucks!

Have a wonderful weekend all!  Thanks for dropping by..
