Winter's Back....and a New Stamp!



We woke up to more snow this morning! AAAAGGHHHHH!!! Enough already! I swear this is going to be known as the winter that never ends! Okay, it was gone by noon but still……grrrrr…. The only good thing about it snowing today is that a lot of people stayed in this morning and we got all our errands done in no time. Today was the first day out of the house since the weekend – talk about home bodies! It was just too cold, wet and dreary to want to leave a nice warm house……..besides I have a quilt that needs to be finished.

Today’s card is one I made with one of the new stamps from Stamping Bella and I’m entering it into the challenge over at http://seizethebirthday.blogspot.com.



I coloured this image with Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol when I was down with that horrible virus I had but just got around to finishing it. I rubbed chalk with a cotton ball around her for the sky and brown for dirt. I like a soft subtle background and I find chalk works the best.

This looks like a complicated card but it was very easy to put together. I backed the image on yellow cardstock to pick up the colour of the scooter; and then backed that with the marbled hot pink cardstock which matches her skirt; and then glued the entire thing to the white card base. After that it as so easy to just add those peel-off flowers (thrift store find) to the lower left and one blossom to the top right to balance the card and added the peel-off sentiment. Love this card! Perfect for a teenage girl; collage student or young adult.

That’s all for a snowy; wet; dreary Thursday

Cheers
Violet
