Maggie, Springtime Girl

Evening Everyone!

I hope you have all had a fabulous day today!  I have had a lovely day crafting and my friend came to see me so that was really nice catching up and crafting too.  A quick post from me tonight but I hope you like what I have done.


I am in a "blue" mood at the moment!  Don't you find times  when you just run with one colour for a few of your cards?  Well this is the case for me at the moment.  I think my next cards will be more spring like!  My friend Lexie commented that she would like to feel warm the next time she comes for a visit!!!  Watch this space Lexie is all I am going to say :)  Below is a close up of Maggie and the embellishments.


Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is from Dawn Bibby's Flower Patch Kit as are the flowers and butterfly.
2.  The base card is what I found in my stash and I have coloured it using Dew Drops Brilliance ink in Sky Blue.
3.  The paper of the base of the card is from K & Co.
4.  The topper I have cut out using one of my Spellbinder Dies after printing Maggie on Supersmooth card.  Maggie Spring Time Girl is a Heather Valentin Digi from Scrapbook Stamp Society.
5.  I have coloured Maggie in using a mixture of watercolour pencils and Sakura glitter pens.  I highlighted the edge of the topper with Sakura Glitter Pen.
6.  The embellishments consist of brodrie anglaise looped 3 times and attached to the card.  The blue beaded spray is from My Craft Studio and the flowers I have coloured using Adirondak cloudy blue.  I added gems from my stash to the centre of the flowers.
7.  The butterfly stopper has been double embossed using holographic embossing powder.

Thank you for stopping by Today
