Gardening chicks

I'm back today for another Stamping Bella post.  This weeks card is featuring 'gardening chicks'.

After stamping the image onto some cougar 100lb white cardstock I used prisma colour pencils to colour.  Once done I cut it out using spellbinders oval die, left the die in place and sponged some soft sky around the edge. This was then layered onto a piece of aqua mist c/s cut from a spellbinder scallop die.

My background papers are from Simple Stories - vintage bliss.  I just love the papers in this pack! I used my corner rounder punch for the top corners on the plaid piece.  

It seemed kind of plain and needed something so I pulled out several 'leafy' dies and ended up going with Memory Box - fresh foliage.

Finished off with glitter and sequins.

stamp - Stamping Bella - gardening chicks
ink - black memento, SU soft sky, prisma colour pencils- way to many to list
dies - spellbinders - oval and oval scallop, MB fresh foliage
paper - cougar white, bazzill lemonade, PTI - aqua mist, Simple Stories - vintage bliss
misc - sequins, glitter, corner rounder

I hope I have inspired you today.  Thanks for your visit.

Ack! So cute! You know I love it. How could I not? Fun and adorable stamp, the perfect papers, and totally fabulous coloring with your Prismas. When I get a little more caught up I feel a Bella order coming on. I swear I'm trying to be good for a while. It's so hard! I adore this card, Pauline!

Pauline, these chicks are so cute. No one can use prisms like you. This card has beautiful soft colours. You sure know how to finish off a card with the beautiful leaf die and sequins placed just right. Have a wonderful day!
