Today I had a bit of time to simply 'play'. (yay me!) I finally had the time to pull out this super cute Baby Bud design - Baby Belle. You can find all of the super sweet Baby Bud Images here.
The theme this week is 'flowers'. So I used Baby Belle and my new Leaf Spellbinders Nesties to create a large flower around her with the bright orange ruffled ribbon that I made using seam binding. I cannot take credit for this awesome technique. You can find it here on SCS!! (thanks Cindy!)
Printed Belle twice. Both times on white stock. I colored her with Copics in one and trimmed just her cute flowery head out. I then cut the other using my leaf nestie and while keeping the die still on the now cut image, sponged the entire leave - except the border which was still covered by the die with Tim Holtz - Antique Linen and Peeling Paint. I then did just a tiny bit of coloring with my Pale Olive Copic marker on her leaves and various stems.
My card base is light olive green, followed by kraft, followed by the SU! birdies. My double circles - also cut with my Circle nesties are both Crate Paper (orange) and PTI (polka dots). I did some funky stitching on my background and added a blue rhinestone flourish. My sentiment is from an old SU! set - A Little Birdie Told Me.
The interior of my card was kept simple and crisp. I used the same PTI polka dots, a kraft circle and more Crate Paper for the inner orange circle. The sentiment is also from the same SU! set.
I hope you come see the cuteness over at Baby Bud!!
I also hope you've been inspired to create something beautiful today!!
