This card was all about using up bits in my craft stash. The backing papers were left overs from other projects and to bring them all together I matted them onto pale grey paper. The image is a Sarah Kay rubber stamp and it was the first ever stamp I bought. Rather than colouring her I paper pieced her clothes from the off cuts of the backing papers and then coloured the skin and hair using Spectrum Noir FS1, 2, 3, and TN1 and EB1,2,3
To make the card really girlie, I used a Martha Stewart punch to edge the grey paper behind the candy striped panels. I also used a score board and ball tool to emboss the large pink panel to give a quilted effect adding pearls at the intersections. Behind the image I added a piece of gauze left over from another project and a scrap of lace.
The Fence is just die cut from white card, and I added a die cut foliage swirl cut from a piece of the grey paper. The roses are from Hobby House and the blue sweetheart blossoms were from my stash as was the charm. A scrap of blue seam binding tied in a bow finish it off.
The die cut pink butterfly was one left over from another project and rather than put it into a box of die cuts and risk it getting damaged because it is so delicate I used it here.
Above the card closed for posting.
