Stampavie & More

This is my effort for Stampavie & More whose challenge this week is "Buttons, blue and brown". The papers are a download from Designs by Krista called Sundance. I think I shall be relying on downloaded papers quite a bit as my stock of 12"x12" patterned papers got left in England and were too heavy to post. The Sarah Kay image 'My Sweet Lil' is coloured with Copics using the watercolour technique to keep it soft and light. I didn't want a brown bear so decided Lil would have to have a Polar bear for this card.
She is cut and matted using the Spellbinders curved rectanges then matted again onto cream cs the edges of which are cut with the EKSuccess Scalloped diamond punch. I struggled with buttons - the blues weren't the right shade, the browns were too large and dominant so I resorted to using clear ones. although they didn't show up very well on the cream so I cut three little flowers with the small Woodware cherry blossom punch and sat them on these. The flower is from Papirloftet and the leaves cut with a Woodware punch.


Stamps - Sarah Kaye 'my Sweet Lil'
Papers - Sundance from designs by Krista
Tools - Spellbinders curved rectangles : EKSuccess Scalloped diamond border punch
Woodware cherry blossom and leaf punches : Copic markers
Embellishments - Flower - Papirloftet : rest from stash
