Sweet Hello

This weekend there is a challenge going on over at the Passionate Paper Creation FB group to create a project using an image from Sweet Pea Stamps?  Since I am a hoarder of all things crafty hence my blog name, I had a few digital images from the site and chose this little lady to color up today.  It’s funny I was sitting in my space all day trying to figure out what to craft today and it was not until about six p.m. that it finally came to me what to do.  I printed Connie Fong’s Little Blossom at a size of 3.5 inches and started bringing her to life.

After she was all colored in I used some black liquid pearls to the center of the flowers to add a little dimension.  I added some red atyou spica pen the berries on her bag and some clear spica pen to the strap around the same bag and along her shoes.  I die cut the image using a By Diezyne stitched rectangle and used the next size up for the mat.  Next, I used the largest die in that set to cut out the DP and then die cut a neutral color piece of cardstock using the larger frame from the Mama Elephant Sew Fancy set to mat the DP on.  I also used the Mama Elephant hello die for my sentiment.  It is cut out three times, once in the gold foil and the other two are in a neutral brown below it and they are glued together using multi matte medium.

Supplies used:
Paper: Recollections various colors, Neenah #110 Solar White for card base, Hammermill #100 for picture panel, DCWV Far East and Foiled Cardstock;
Stamps and Dies: Connie Fong’s Little Blossom, MaMa Elephant Hello and Sew Fancy, By Diezyne Stitched and Pierced Rectangles
Inks: Epson, atyou spica pens clear and garnett;
