A 'Little Bit of Gossip'

Good morning my crafty friends on this rather damp and dismal day down on the South coast.  It was beautiful yesterday so how can it be so blinking different today!

Anyway, I'm here to share with you my latest card which features the cutest little fairy digi from Sugar Nellie.  She is 'Little Bit of Gossip' and she's beautiful but she won't be around for ever as they are retiring her so if you like this little bit of cuteness you need to hop over to Funky Kits before she disappears. 

I used my First Edition 'Spring Drop' papers as my colour inspiration.  My colouring ended up a bit more bold than was planned .. I don't seem to do pastel well it always ends up a lot darker but hey I like it anyway.  I dug out my old Tim Holtz butterfly border die just to add a little bit of interest to the card shape and look no ribbon - that's a first but hey I did use twine!  

Medium:  copics
Papers:  First Edition 'Spring Drop'
Dies:  Whimsy 'Butterfly Frame', Tim Holtz butterfly border, Whimsy 'Corner' die set
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts


My usual close up piccie of the sweet image.  She's been coloured with copics and a little bit of sparkle.  I decided to have a go at the 'dotty' background and I'm quite pleased with the end result.

Copic List

Face/Body:  E50, E51, E21, E11
Hair:  E43, E47, E49
Clothes:  R81, R83, R85/BG11, BG13, BG15
Grass:  YG11, YG13, YG67

Challenges:

Creative Inspirations  -  Spring into Summer

The Sugar Bowl  -  Anything goes

Sweet Stampin  -  Lots of layers

The Ribbon Girl  -  June 'Card' challenge/anything goes

Stamping Sensations  -  Feature a Creature (ladybird & butterflies)

That's all from me today my lovelies.  Still have chores to do as I didn't get as much done as I wanted yesterday ... I blame the visitors we had not the fact that I kept stopping to craft ... that's my story anyway and I'm sticking to it!

Take care folks and happy crafting.
