I have used a Lacy Sunshine image called Lil Bug – Precious Wings.  This is such a precious image and I have coloured it with soft colours that work well with the paper.

 

Of course I added a butterfly with some lace and pearls. The sentiment is “Thinking of You” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set.

 

The cardstock is Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake and Confetti White.  The die cut used is the Deco Labels Diecuts plus the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die and I have embossed one of the layers using a retired bossing folder called Lacey Brocade.

Anything Goes with Sentiment

Anything Goes with Sentiment

Fish

Hello from a very wet cool Sydney.

 

It has been cold here for the past few days and now the rain has been hanging around but the garden is loving it!  I managed to get the roses pruned and some potted colour in the garden in between the down pour, so I am very happy with the rain.

 

But enough about my gardening, let me share with you my card for the new challenge at Come and Get It.

 

The theme is Fish/Fishing and our sponsor is Bugaboo.

 

I have chosen a fun image with a cheeky sentiment for my take on this fish challenge.  The image is called Wiggle the Bait and I have coloured it in with Copic. 

 

The DSP used is a Paper Stack called Moonlight from the new catalogue and the cardstock is Whisper White, Sahara Sand and Express It Blending paper.

 

Here is my card

P1020056_edited-1

 

Copics used N0, N2, N4, Y0000, Y000, Y21, Y23, Y26, W00, W1, W3, W5, E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21, E40, E42, E43

 

A fairly CAS creation but I like it.
