au naturel

I know you've come across an image you couldn't wait to work with. Here's one of my many. Time is not kind to me so 5 minutes here, 10 there. She is finally done.

This stunning Ivy fairy comes from Delicious Doodles
Colored in copics and prisma pencils. Thank you to Melenie Holtz, who inspired my colors. I knew I wanted greens but oh, how this lady can color
Backgrounds are from DCWV Linen closet stack and stash. Distressed with knife and file, then inked on all layers.
Frames are nestabilites. Leaf die from sizzix
Buttons and ribbons from stash.

She felt like someone a man would go for. Hmmm, wonder why, lol. So, I made her for a someone special.

Ok, I think this is my 10this card. Not a lot and it seems like I never have time but I'm adicted. The best thing about still being a newb is I get to try something new each time.

So, this little lady from Whoopsi Daisy is done on kraft and done in Prisma colors. I wanted to do something with the prisma on kraft because I love the way the colors are so true. And being springish...I needed something brighter.

The background is a circle that I've added halved circles to make the flower. I've since saw dies that are actually already done this way (if you know this die, please leave a comment)
Papers are both from DCWV. One from blossoms and butterflys and on the glitter mat stack
flowers are prima and WOC
Ribbon from stash

The inside is embossed in swiss dots  and cut out around with an MS corner punch edge and dots then inked.

The sentiment, again, edged with corner punch then paperpieced the flower, added some pearl and rinestone to bling up the centers.
Sentiment is cloud 9 simple thoughts- memories

I embossed the sentiment in clear and for some reason couldn't get it to focus. My picture taking needs work. Ahhh.It's all a learning process. :)
