A favourite image

Hello Everyone! Welcome to another Bellariffic friday challenge.  This weeks challenge was to ink up one of your favourite images.  Well, I had a very hard time deciding which image was my favourite.
There are so many from the Uptown Girls, stella's, bella's, green bean babies, and my list goes on.
So to make my decision on what to do I tried to narrow it down -  since I love flowers and love the pixie images, I pulled out an image that has never seen ink yet! (and I have lots of those!).
This is Patsy Pixie. Isn't she adorable peeking through the bouquet of flowers?

As always, I stamped her on Bella's bestest white paper using black memento ink and then coloured her using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.  I based my colours on a piece of Basic Grey - Kissing Booth.  So pretty, love the little flowers on it.  I then trimmed around the image and used a corner rounder for my top 2 corners.  Did the  same with the pink and yellow card stock.  I sponged versamagic thatched straw, and then with some  distress ink - scattered straw around the image.

The white strip behind the image is cut using a Cheery Lynn die.  All of these dies are so detailed and intricate, I think by far one of my fav companies for this type of die.

Finished off with some stitching, glossy accents on the center of the daisy's and on the little stamens, and glitter on the some of the pink flowers.

Next week's challenge is another sketch. Our multi-talented Ebruabella has designed 25 great sketches for us for the upcoming year - whoohoo Ebru!! For all you sketch lovers, looks like we will be doing a sketch every other week.  So here is next weeks sketch.  Be sure to email Emily your card by thursday night. If you would like to post it on SCS be sure to use the keyword BELLARIFFIC0212.  
Have a good weekend, see you soon.  Thanks for peeking in today!

Everytime I see this image colored...I likey but this time I lovey! Love how you paired the flower garden paper with the flower garden image! They were made for each other. I'm green with envy here though cuz I couldn't find Kissing Booth in stock online and I have no where to buy it locally. Hmpf!
