A Rare Sunday Post


A rare Sunday post. I’m supposed to be sewing my grandson’s Halloween costume but so far, not happening. First we went to church; breakfast out; trip to the fruit stand (so happy having fresh strawberries and raspberries in Oct); a visit with the sister-in-law; and now strolling through the Internet. I need some motivation to get sewing but it’s just not coming right now.

This card is one of my favourite stamps from Stamping Bella and this card meets the requirements for two challenges.

 


 

 
This image makes such a nice birthday card. It was stamped right on the white cardstock and then coloured with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Wink of Stella was added to her skirt to give it some shimmer. Glossy Accents was added to the balloons to make them shiny like real balloons. Blue chalk was sponged around the image. The image was then die cut with a Spellbinder die and added to the card base. Pearls were added for a little extra dimension. The butterfly border is a Memory Box die. One extra butterfly was die cut and added to the top with a pearl for its body.

That’s all for a cool Sunday, October-04-15

Cheers

Violet
