Papers- Colour me Happy from Funky Hand
wohooooo! its bank holiday here in the UK so I get an extra day with the gorgeous men in my life, which is my best kinda day really!!
Over on the Sugar Nellies facebook group, Fiona set us a gorgeous colour challenge for the sugary sunday, and oooh the piccy of colours was so gorgeous I just had to jump straight on it!! he he he!!
Now I am super lucky because I have the Papercraft Factory cd roms from Funky Hand and they have every colour under the sun on them so it was super easy to find the colours I needed! yey for Anice! I love the sort of lineny effect on these papers.
I got out my Vintage Boutique simply sassy stamp for this one ( I have adopted this stamp and it is so much loved thankyou mwah,mwah xxxxx) and stamped her on some white cardstock and the scraps of my cardbase too because I wanted to paper piece her up to keep in with the colours of the challenge. I only needed to shade the dress a little to give its some umpf!! and her hair..which is vanilla,mustard and caramel and her face which is blush, sunkissed pink and coral.
Then for the fun part completely inspired by the lovely Pops who always uses the most gorgeous butterflies on her card. I went for a big fluttering mass of butterflies and I have to say I am loving it (...However if you saw me even in the vicinity of a real butterfly you would wet yourself laughing as I just don't do them...AT ALL!!! I haven't done them since I was 8 and a huge one landed on my forehead at a butterfly park and I wasn't allowed to move until the guide took it off...much to the amusement of my brother and sister but since then I have been petrified of butterflies and moths!!!!!!) Think quiet screaming and running faster than wind and you have what happens to me when there's a butterfly or moth to near me!!!
Any whoo, I just kinda plonked them on in a flutter with some glue and added a bit of twine to my stamped mat to finish it all off. The little corners are my EK Success punch that my lovely friend Lou MADE me buy........;) :) but I have to admit it is right up there with my most used punches, its fab for just adding a bit of something.
I am sending this little card off to a challenge too....
Cupcake Craft Challenges..oooh la la!!
