Little Daisy

It is a sheer delight to colour a Sweet Pea stamp, this Little Daisy image is divine.  I love her to bits! 

This is the second time I've coloured her and this time I went for soft blues and pinks as last time, she was very bright!

I used the feather technique for her wings and love the effect of three tones this creates.  I used my Lilac Spica to add some sparkle around her and on her wings, other spica pens have added glitter and sparkle on the image are Baby Blue, Sand, Sky Blue, Gold, Clear, Pink, Chocolate, Blossom and Buttermilk.  Maybe that wasn't enough?!?

 I've also used one of my new embossing folders from Spellbinders, the reversible ones.  Love the concept.  I also sponged the background with Pretty In Pink ink to take away the stark white of the X-Press It blending card.  

The only part I'm not super impressed with is her hair.  I'm still doing Workshop 2 with Mandi-Lee from Copic Me so I'm hoping that my skills will gradually improve as I learn more.  Oh if you join up to the class, it costs $35 AUD and you have access to the workshops for 3 months!  Lots of fabulous videos to follow and the tips and techniques are really helpful.  If you join from reading this, tell me and Mandi too.  She is giving some little prizes for people who recommend new participants, and who doesn't love a prize?


Little Daisy is destined to be shown off at the following challenges.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog ~  Easter/Spring and optional sketch
City Crafter Challenge Blog ~ Week 103  'Hats off to you'


Thanks for visiting

Happy Easter everyone.

Cheers,
