Lil Ragamuffin Nellie & Duckies

Good morning my crafty friends and followers

Well it looks like it is going to be another glorious day here in Warrington.  I hope the weather is nice wherever you are and you have a fabulous Friday!

Today over at Scrapbook Stamp Society the Society Girls are posting their projects from the new releases and I hope you can hop on over to the blog and have a look. There are some amazing projects and why not enter our challenge this month which is Garden Patch. I have chosen Nellie with the cutest ducks which I am going to send to my mum for Easter.

Recipe & Method

1. Base card is pearlescent pink Centura card which I have scored to make an easel card.
2. I printed off the image onto Neenah card and then coloured in using my watercolour pencils. I then cut this using Spellbinder labels 23 and distressed around the edges using Dew Drops VersaMagic pixie dust.
3. Using Spellbinder dies Lattice Motifs and Accents design by Sue Wilson I cut out the corners, the border and the ribbon holder with white pearlescent Centura card.
4. I placed the border onto the folded front of the easel and placed the topper over this. The corners were added to the base of the card and I threaded pink iridescent ribbon to either side of the ribbon holder and adhered to the strip of card which I had inked using Dew Drops Brilliance ink pearlescent orchid.
5. I have added gems to the corners, ribbon holder and top right hand corner of the card; the flowers are from my crafty stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
