There are so many challenges taking place now, which theme is "Spring", and this inspired me to create a card, which will be full of spring spirit, and that means to me - full of green color.
This time I've chosen for my card (for a little change) not a Magnolia. and not a Mo's Digital and even not a Saturated Canary image, but something completely new for me - a stamp by Toread, which is called Buddle. As I understand this cute little creature is a nymph :) I decided she will be my spring nymph.
I'm totally in love with the image, she's so chubby and funny! It took me quite long to color the leaves on her wreath and her outfit, but it was worth it.
Here is the list of the Copic colors I've used:
Hair: E49, E47, E44, E43
Greens: G07, G05, G02, G00
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Apples: R17, R14, R12, Blender
Basket: E59, E57, E55, E53
Shoes: C7, C3, C1
I've used a mounting foam to attach the cut-out image to a card background, in her eyes I used Glossy Accents, added a but of Crystal Stickles on the leaves:
The papers are mostly from the two paper stacks:
- Basic Grey "Infuse"
- Cosmo Cricket "Garden Variety"
Here are several close-ups:
The inside of the card is also generously embellished, with different layers of paper, tags and a "postal card" tag, on the back of which a personal sentiment is supposed to be written:
The back is pretty simple:
