Edna needs a Martini

Hello everyone! I think we all could use a Martini don't you think? Although I'm not much of a drinking, the occasional glass of wine is always good.

For my card today I have a Stamping Bella image - called Edna needs a Martini.

I just love the Edna series of images and they always have cute sentiments to go along with them.

I stamped her onto some cougar white c/s and used copics to colour. Used an MFT stitched rectangle to cut her out and then layered her onto some MME Hazel papers - Stella Rose.
I stamped the sentiment onto some white c/s using black versafine, then used a circle die to cut out and used one of the copic picks to go around the edge just to add a bit of colour.

To finish off I used wink of stella clear pen for her wings and added some clear sequins.

Just to answer Leslie's question on my last post:

Leslie, to answer your question about the fox.  We just happened to be driving along one of the trails to have a picnic lunch and he was right there in front of the car.  He ran across the road and into the forest but came back around behind the car and down towards the small river and Bill jumped out and took pictures.  Shortly after that we saw another one around the picnic tables - looking for nibbles - and again Bill had his camera waiting just in case we saw another.  But, yes Bill has a lot of patience when it comes to his photography.  He will sit for hours waiting if he knows something is in the area.

Heading off to work shortly, it's a gloomy rainy day.  Would much rather be home working on cards!
Enjoy your day,

I love her, Pauline! She's gorgeous and your card is just as pristine and beautiful as could be. See, that's what I admire... not only is your coloring inspiringly top notch, but your cards are always flawlessly put together. You have a good eye and a steady hand and you care about the details, whether they're a little or a lot. It makes all the difference. Hey, thanks for the answer about the fox, too. We just don't see foxes around here. Deer, elk, raccoons, possums, muskrats, beavers, all kinds of birds -- yes. We have other critters like cougars and bears, and do see them now and then, but mostly they avoid us. Such a beautiful creature as that russet fox would be a treat to behold. BTW, I've been sick with a stomach bug (least fun I've had in years), or I would have stopped by sooner. Have a good day!

Hi Pauline, another awesome card. Looking at Edna's cheeks, it looks like she is on her third martini. Your card is perfect - from the colouring, to the card layout, to the colour schemes and always you find the right finishing touches. I totally agree with Leslie that your cards are always flawless. Cheers to you. Hugs
