A little birdie

Hi all.  This will be a fast post.  My weekend turned into not being so good.  I've been fighting sinus headache since Friday, congestion, sneezing, cough... well you know how it is.  So needless to say, I'm heading to bed after sleeping almost 15 hours last night.  Just can't get rid of the bad sinus headache, which make your eyes feel sore and tired, and watery.

Okay enough about me, I received my huge Stamping Bella order on Thursday, so I was so eager to colour up something new.  I pulled out Little Birdie Jane by one of Stamping Bella's newest artist
Jane Davenport. 
I stamped her on Bella's bestest paper using black memento ink.  She was coloured  using prismacolour pencils, after putting a base coat down with copics first.  I made the frame around her but using a couple of punches from Martha Stewart -around the page Vintage Floral.  I saw a tutorial over on Kittie's blog- she has some fantastic tutorials on frame making, flowers, wreaths, etc, you should check it out! It took me a few tries to get the exact paper measurements to get the frame I wanted.  I started with a piece measuring 3 1/2 x 5 5/8.  After punched around, it gave me just enough room to place my image.
Paper is from Memory Box called Aerial.  I thought this would be perfect paper because of the little birds on it (which most of it is covered up, but you can still see a bit of the birds).

Finished off with some stitching, glitter and some baubles.  I was really pleased on how this turned out.

Okay, I'm off to bed, hopefully I'll feel somewhat better tomorrow.  Thanks for stopping by.
I have a new Uptown Girl image to share with you on Wed... see you then.

Oh my, this is GORGEOUS! I love the shading of her dress along with the glitter and baubles. The punched border frame is so elegant looking.
