Make It Crafty Inspiration blog hop!

(Please scroll down for my Bellarific Friday DT post!)


It's time for the fortnightly Make It Crafty Inspiration blog hop!  And for this hop the theme is "new beginnings".  What a great excuse to make another baby card - one of my friends of family always seem to be giving birth!!  Here it is...


Isn't she the cutest?!  This is Bobo Petal Sprite who I matched up with My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing Lavender papers.  To create a bit of depth, I popped this sweetie onto foam pads and also used one of the branches from the chipboard Oriental Bird set.  I inked up the flowers with a soft pink ink layered over with a white pigment ink, then dotted on some Stickles Star Dust (one of the pressies from my Secret Santa package from fabby team mate Sandie!).

I stamped coloured little Bobo Petal Sprite onto watercolour paper and then coloured in with my Copics - it gives a lovely texture to the image but boy does it drink the ink!  Needless to say I don't do this often!  Here's a close up...


Copics used:
Skin: E21, E00, E000
Hai: YR30, YR31, YR23
Eyes: BG10, BG15
Rose and leaves: G000, G12, G82, RV00, RV21, RV23
 

Back to the hop.  Comment a long the way to increase your chances of winning one of three hidden $5 gift certificates!  You should have got here from Rhea and you now need to hop off to Aeryn.  Here's the full hop list in case you get lost!










Mary J (me!)




Okay, I am off now and back tomorrow with my Whimsie Doodles DT post!
