This one took me ages....

A flying visit from me today....I have to say although I like this stamp, it took me ages to colour and I wasn't really sure what to do with her hair. Originally I set out to make a card to fit the challenge on the sugar Nellie Facebook page with spring like papers and colours however it went completely up in the the stamp is Entangled from Sugar Nellie which I stamped onto kraft and coloured with polychromos. The papers are MME - Lost and found which are really lovely and layered onto kraft and bazzill card which I distressed. I added some raffia, ribbon and button twine to which I attached a flower and button, the flowers have been cut with my favourite die...MFT flower trio die and I used felt and kraft to do that and then added pearls to the centres. The message is from Personal Impressions. It's a bit different but hope you likey...

Wow this is some amazing colouring, no wonder it took you ages! Looks absolutely beautiful! And I love the darker papers you've used to contrast it the vibrant colours in the image! Saw this at MIM!

It may have taken you ages (sometimes it just does, for some reason), but I think the result turned out great - I am especially fond of the colouring of the hair. Nice card on MIM!

Tracy said...

It's great Fi! I think I would have been in the same boat as you and not known how to color her hair. It came out very nicely and your layering is beautiful. I might have to invest in that flower die. I really like the shape and it's perfect for doodling! LOL Hugs!
