Mallard - Female

Monday, March 26, 2012


Hi there.  Did you have a good weekend? Saturday wasn't a complete washout, the rain stopped and it cleared up later in the day.  Sunday was beautiful, lots of sun.  I managed to get two images coloured and one put together.  The other, well lets say it is now in the garbage! So, now I'm behind -- grrrrrrr. It just didn't work out the way I planned, and it wasn't even salvageable!  Enough said about that, let me show you the card that did turn out.

I pulled out some of the green bean baby images that haven't seen ink yet.  I have so many, and they are all so cute, it was a big decision  - and Natasha won my heart.

 As always, stamped the image on bella's bestest paper and coloured her using Copics.  I also did some shading with pencils and gamsol.  DP is from Bo Bunny - Alora Collection - (one of my findings during my road trip on saturday). I used a scallop die to made the scallops on the bottom portion of the card.
Adhered some tiny pearls on the bottom tips of her dress.  Added lots of glitter to the flower centers as well as her wings. Finished with a piece of turquoise seam binding ribbon and stitching.

If you have time to play in our challenge this week, our theme is Spring/Easter.  You can email your card to Emily by Thursday evening or you can upload it on SCS using the keyword BELLARIFFIC1212. There is $20 in bella bucks up for grabs just for playing along.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
