I normally stay in a Christmas frame of mind for a week or more after Christmas and New Year, making a head start for the next one (then leave the creations untouched for 6-7 months! ha ha). but today I want share something out of the seasonal vein ... I guess a little Spring-ish (although I'm in the grips of an Aussie summer).
Using StretchNBubble's Flower Friend image...
Ingredients: White, Pink Cardstock; Glitter Pens; Glaze Pens; Pink Organza Ribbon; Pearl Strip; Clear Rhinestones...
First up - my apologies for the colouring in the photo - our natural light today is quite yellow... yay unpredictable summer sun! I have coloured the image with a variety of glitter pens, and blended with a waterpen in some areas. The wee ladybug is coloured with glaze pens, so she has a sweet shiny wet look. After adding a pink matt, I wrapped a length of narrow pink organza ribbon, and fixed it at the back, then topped it with a strip of cream pearls. I finished by adding some rhinestones to the corners...
