I am starting to put together some of the images I colored while demoing at the copic booth at CHA. I had my cricut out for my nieces to play with the other day and noticed this sweet little mushroom that I thought would make a great card base for my ladybug. It is the "Freshly Picked" cartridge for those fellow cricut users.
I went away from the traditional black/red combo for this ladybug....mainly because I couldn't find my C8 copic marker....it was a good thing as I like this softer look to "ladybug" from My Favorite Things.
This card is 5.5" square so it fits nicely into a square envelope. I hinged the top of the card by sewing on a felt little butterfly. This is the new "butterfly die" from My Favorite Things as well. It is a sweet trio of butterflies in which I used the smallest two.
Here is a close up of the coloring. I used E11,15,18 for the browns. R22,27,39 for the reds. E50,21,33 and R20 for the skin and a little bit of yellow for the hair.
I'm off to put together some more cards with pieces I have colored meanwhile listening to Greg Laurie on the ipad. Here is the link to his Harvest crusade sermons. I read his autobiography "Lost Boy" while sitting many hours in the plane to and from California....what a great way to spend my time. I was very inspired by his own personal story and highly recommend it!
Have a great day!
