Its the end of the week, so its time again for another challenge over at the AnnaBelle Stamps blog. I am a little purple challenged, but ended up enjoying this challenge as it took me right out of my comfort zone.
Its my niece's birthday in a couple of months, but I thought I would get in early and whipped this card up for her. My base is Plum Pudding and a mat of Kraft card was added after being distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool. I stamped my Lil' Michelle With Teddy image in Tuxedo Black ink and I stamped her again on some Dotti Biscotti paper and also Pumpkin Pie card. I cut the shirt from the Dotti Biscotti paper and then the heart from the Pumpkin Pie cardstock. When I had paper pieced this onto the original image, I added some Glossy Accents to her shirt.
I stamped the flowers from the Helen's Party stamp set, masking the teddy bear along the way. The flowers were coloured in with a Copic marker and then dots added with my white gel pen. I then stamped the balloon from the same set once, and masked it before stamping it again so they could overlap. The balloons and the rest of Lil Michelle were coloured with my Copics. To add the string for the balloons, I paper pierced some holes and handstitched the string with some Kraft thread. Finally 'Emilie' was added by using some tiny alphas before distressing this layer and adding to my Kraft mat.
On the inside I stamped the teddy image again and added some curly string from Helen's Party set. Some more tiny alphas were used to create the sentiment.
