Rosie...... oh Rosie..... I'd like to paint your face up in the sky.....
Well... does anyone else remember Don Partridge with that song? It's been going around in my head while I've been making this card! And yes, I'm THAT old! LOL
This is a card I've done for the Sugar Nellies Facebook Challenge (Week 1) - the criteria was to only use green and blue! Sooooo difficult for the pink queen here.... But I managed to put lots of glitter on which kind of made up for the lack of my fav colour!
Funky Kits. She's an adorable image and I'm sure she'll look better in pink when I get the chance! LOL! I coloured her with Copics - glittered her up.... used a nestie shape for the image... and sponged the edge of the shape to give some definition. I then used some paper from my stash (GCD Ella Blue - may be out of production now cos I bought the pad cheap a while back)... and put the whole lot onto a bazzil pale blue back. I used some lace, some seam binding... some pearls from my stash.... then made some flowers using a sizzix die called (surprisingly enough) 3D flowers! I'd distressed the edge of the green DP so I added stickles to give MORE glitter!! LOL! Then lastly, added some punched, (and glittered) butterflies! Oh and a big thing for me, I actually chose the paper BEFORE I coloured the image!
I was so out of my comfort zone on this one not being allowed to use pink... and with all those embellies.... very unlike me! Anyway, hope you like the finished result!
Can I just say welcome to my lovely new followers - it seems my tutorial went down well with you - I'm so glad because I was so nervous doing it! Don't think I'll ever be an internet phenomenon..... LOL.... but hey, I'm happy with it!
