The lovely ladies at Scrapping4Fun have me as a guest designer today. Their theme is Birthday.
I've used this little Whimsey stamp called Dolly, I've had her for absolutely ages but not had chance to use her. So this I thought the perfect opportunity.
The image had been coloured with ProMarkers and I've used a black polychromos pencil to add extra shading.
Once cut out the image was distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen ink. Added to this were some sprikles of Stampendous embossing enamel.
All the papers have been distressed using a Tonic Solutiolns tool. Design papers are from Lili of the Valley and Our Daily Bread. The image was frames with some black card stock.
Here's a close up of the flower bouquet arrangement I've added. These were all from Live and Love Crafts and Wild Orchid Crafts. I found the gorgeous lavender flower patterned ribbon at Crafty Ribbons.
The happy birthday sentiment was cut from some black card stock using a Spellbinders die. The final touch some purple gems from Scrap Berry.
Hope you like my card for today
