Woo Hoo and Happy Friday. I am here today to share a card I made just because…love making “just because” cards- this one is just because I loved the image and had to color her up! She is one of Krista Smith’s newest Saturated Canary digital stamp additions called “Eggs-tra Pretty” and you can find her here.
I was aching for something “spring time” and so I chose bright yellows and complemented them with the beautiful blue greens- all copics.. well almost all. My “hair” copics need a good cleaning and that combined with having a heavy hand when it comes to coloring hair, I had to bring my Polychromos pencils to the rescue! I distressed all edges of the paper with one of the newer Ranger Distress Ink colors- Fossilized Amber.
I used several Sizzix border dies and Spellbinder die to frame the image as well as Wild Orchid Craft flowers to embellish her. Lace and yellow flower ribbon are from WHS Marketplace. You really should check out her “shop” as she has so many items that are from Poland and Sweden and now they are right here in the USA where shipping isn’t so expensive! I added some pearls and glitter to the bow on her dress and eggs in her basket as well as areas of light on her hair. It is more visible in the pic above.
The design paper is digital paper from Raspberry Road Designs– such breathtaking collections! This is from the “Oh So Shabby Collection” and you can find that here. How beautiful are they!! Last I embellished my card with ribbon, pearl on a string and pearl/rhinestone from The Ribbon Girl. Thanks so much for stopping by and for you kind comments! Have a great weekend! This card, along with other items I have created, is available in my ETSY shop (see sidebar)!
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
