Little country girl - Adele

Hi there!

I have a lovely little girl by Stampavie today - Adele enjoying fresh apples.  I probably had more problems making this card than any other, becuase I did it backwards! I coloured the image ages ago when I went to a colouring class held at Papercuts in Whitley Bay by the talented Bev Rochester.  Beause I was trying to match the colours I had used to papers instead of the other way around it took me an age to find the right thing - I thought I was saving time by using an image that was coloured - how wrong can you be. After I had finally finished it I had bigger problems photoghraphing it because the flower is so big it cast shadows all over the place!  Anyway enough moaning! 

I had coloured her with copics and prismacolour pencils and shaded the spellbinders die cut with Tim Holtz distress ink, The papers are all K & Co and the flower and leaves were cut from spellbinders,  I filled the centre of the flower with a Martha Stewart large grade glitter and topped it off with a pearl to highlight.  The red pearls are all from kaisercraft, I love how you can get the different sizes and colours.  The sentiment is from craftwork cards and the gold lace from my stash.  I love the red/pink combo and these papers are just the right style for this little country girl.

Thats me for now!
