'Play!'

Hi all this is a card I made for e-bay a few weeks back using one of my fave Belles & Whiskars images. How good is Elisabeth Bell? I think the stamp world would be a less prettier place without her work - just love it! - and they're just so perfect for colouring, you can achieve so many different looks with them. I've gone for bright & cheerful with touch of shabby for this one...

 

...The papers are mostly Fairest of them all by Imaginisise & yellow checked piece is The Girls Paperie 'Paper Girl'. Most of the flowers are from Country Baskets, except the lemon velvet by Maya Road. Ticket by Tim Holtz...

 

...Sewing detail added round edges, border punch is Martha Stewart doily edge punch...I've pained the pin & chipboard heart with acrylic, the heart has had 1 layer of dark pink, then yellow. Then simply go to town with the craft knife to distress! (v. fun)...

 

...Coloured with Distress inks
 Skin - Tattered Rose
Cheeks - Worn Lipstick
 Hair - Old Paper & Brushed Cordroy
 Top, shoes, teddys nose, ear & heart - Spun Sugar
 Pants & pink stripes on headband, hair bow & teds bowtie - Spun Sugar & Worn Lipstick
 Teddy & yellow stripes on headband; Scattered Straw, Wild Honey & Mustard Seed.
Highlighted in Doodle bug design glitter & white sakura pen...

 

..I love the little acrylic heart embellishment which comes clear, I've dabbled it with acrylic paint on the back in yellow, light & dark pink (let each colour dry in between), then stamped the sentiment on the front in Staz-on, lastly threaded & tied with grosgrain ribbon.
