It was Choccy’s turn to choose an image from Beary Dust Stamps and she chose the beautiful Belle to play with.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers keeping the colours to a very simple pallete of flesh tones, bright green and brown. I must admit green is not a colour I have used very much before but it is definitely growing on me more J

I used some new papers called Happier from My Minds Eye. I really liked the green paper as it is so cheerful with the little flowers, ladybirds & butterflies. I matted it onto the green cardbase and used the reverse orange paper strip that was left over and punched with a Fiskars border punch. The image has been diecut with a Nestabilities die abd the sentiment has used a smaller size. The small butterfly that Belle is looking at has been cut from the backing paper and I added some small gems. The other butterflies are tiny glittered stickers. To finish off I added an assortment of flowers and a big gem centre.
