I've chosen one of the fab little quotes you get in the babies sentiment set from WoJ and teamed it with this beautiful pregnant Willow stamp and the little floral swing again (release date this Sun, 14th). She looked so elegant that I had to paperpierce her a shimmery frock! Also thought I'd give her a different hair colour to my usual black, so today, she's got lovely deep rich auburn locks! Sorry for the poor photo but lighting was terrible when I took it yesterday (where's the sunlight/summer gone?!)Used a ready embossed cardblank with the word 'baby' all over it so no patterned papers needed for this. Just chose this lovely pale aqua/mint pearlescent cardstockas there's flashes of that colour in the glitter of her dress and used that as my accent colour to mat my central image and the quote - all cut with nesties (My image was cut using the largest nestie die so to create the bigger blue mat behind it I just traced around the largest die and cut it out by hand).
Again, was supposed to be simple but just couldn't stop myself from adding some roses and embellies! Dodgy photo means I've not captured the sparkle in her dress and the fact that I've decoupaged her head and 2 arms (one of which went walkabout and I nearly lost it LOL).
Photo below can just about see the 3D-ness (just made that word up) of it all. I've given her liquid pearl necklace and ring too in mint green (that stuff is fab, I've had these bottles for years and they haven't dried or clogged!)
Ooo, just realised I can enter this into this week's ABC challenge of R for roses :) too.
- Images: pregnant Willow, swing and quote all from the upcoming new Whiff of Joy release, 'Women's delight' by Elisabeth Bell
- Colouring: dress is paper pierced, rest is Copics and stickles on the roses, liquid pearls for her necklace and ring
- Others: embossed cardblank, glitter paper and blue cardstock, 'blossom' nesties, MS frond leaf punch, prima flowers, paper roses, ribbon. Teddy metal charm (which I forgot I had until I went to get some out for my candy!) and heart pearl charm crocheted together on a chain with a little leaf on the end which I then attached to card with hear brad.
I liked how this turned out and so did hubby which is unusual as these ones aren't usually his cup of tea.
Thanks for stopping by and for all the lovely comments about my cards and colouring this week too - always makes me happy to read them and much appreciated.
