Today I am sharing some inspiration for Time For Tea Designs using Sweet Smell Of Spring. She is from the Blooming Lovely Collection. She can be purchased as a single image or as part of the collection using the links above. Such a sweet image to colour up and put onto a card.
I don't have any fancy programs on my computer so I imported her into MS Word where I resized her to the size I was after then printed her onto Mondi Color Copy 250GSM using Brother Laser Printer.
First step was colouring her up, I used Copic Markers to colour her in, I had an idea of the paper collection I was thinking about using so I coloured her up to match those colours and patterns.
The patterned papers are from Hopscotch 6x6 Paper pad from Fancy Pants Designs. I don't have a lot of full sheets left so I made my card using a few leftover pieces, nothing wrong with that I do it all the time, it's the best way to make use of every bit of your paper pads.
I cut banners into some of the pieces using EK Success Cutterbee Scissors, I love how sharp they are and that they come to a fine point which allows you to cut nice and straight.
I grabbed a circle die from Lawn Fawn stitched Circle Dies and ran it through my Crafter's Companion Gemini with the image I had coloured up.
I cut some mat layers using Kmart Cardstock and Canson Cardstock using my Cutterpillar Pro.
I stamped the sentiment onto the circle using Memento Tuxedo Black and a Lawn Fawn Acrylic Block, I used My Favorite Things Handwritten Happiness.
Everything was adhered using American Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Adhesive and Scotch 3M ATG, depending on what I was attaching.
After all the layers were stuck together I added them to a Twiddleybitz Card Base.
To finish the card off I added Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow, Carnation Pink and Caribbean Ocean.
