I used a couple of images from Tiddly Inks that I won in another challenge, incorporating the flowers from one set ‘Emma’s Flowers’ , behind my little girl ‘Flutterby Annabelle’. I printed it onto watercolour card and then coloured with promarkers. You would think that watercolour card would suck up the ink but strangely it doesn’t seem to, although it does spread out easily as you can see on her tummy. I used chalk to make the cloudy sky.
I also used a sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy to create the card. The papers are all from Barely Mine from their Spring Surprise Digital Paper pack. That’s the beauty of digital papers, they are there when you want them and you can print as much or as little as you want. For this design I added approximately two inches wide of each of 5 different papers onto one A4 sheet in my graphics program and printed it out. I realised afterwards I could actually have merged them as one paper digitally, but I did actually cut each strip out and glue it down separately.
The scruffy lilac stitches are faux and you can see my hand was very shaky on some of them!
The butterfly is a Magnolia Doohickey die and the ribbon was from my stash. Mat behind the image is a spellbinders die.
