Garden Nellie Lil Dollies

Good Morning All

WOW this is an early post indeed for me!  Well as usual we have rain here in Warrington, I am so fed up with this weather now!  I want to see some sun for a change!!!  Well I am going to spend a lazy day crafting today I have a few images that I want to colour in and make cards with, enjoying playing with my Spectrum Noirs they are brilliant, I can't believe how scared I was at using them but they are fabulous.  I only need to get the Darks and Brights now and then I have the full set!  Anyway less of my ramblings.

For this card I have used Sherri Baldy's Garden Nellie Lil Dollies, I really do love this range from Sherri they just make me smile and they are fabulous to colour in too.  I am sure that a lot of you will see I have used digi's from Scrapbook Stamp Society a lot!  They have the most awesome range of digi's and stamps by some fabulous artists such as Sherri, Heather Valentin, Morgan Fitzsimon to name but a few.  You can see their whole range of digi's here.

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card has been scored down the middle to create an Easel Card.
2.  On the base of the card I have taken a piece of turquoise silk art card and cut out a square using my Spellbinder die.
3.  I have taken a die cut sentiment from Kraftyhands which I have inked using Dew Drops Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender.
4.  I have taken a piece of Lilac silk art card and cut out a square using my Spellbinder die and adhered this to the bottom half of the front of the card. 
5.  I printed Garden Nellie onto Neenah card and coloured her in with Spectrum Noirs.  I then cut her out using Spellbinder Oval die, I then inked around using Dew Drops VersaMagic Aloe Vera.
6.  To finish off I have cut out some vines using Whimsy Shapeology Dies and added them to the topper and then some pearl gems and a flower.

Thank you for stopping by today
