Use a Digi

It was my turn to choose an image from Barbara Jensen and I have this cutie Lolly Poppy, isn’t she a little darling?

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in bright summery colours as I felt it matched the fun image. I have added some Sakura clear glitter pen on the lipstick, earrings and shoe laces and some glossy accents to the big wide eyes.

I used a large card blank and the patterned papers are from a lovely butterfly themed pad from Crea Motions by Artoz. It has lots of bright coloured papers in it, definitely made for me J I have used scraps of red and orange cardstock for the layering. The yellow ribbon and fabulous butterfly trim are a recent purchase from West Bromwich whilst I was waiting for my car to be MOT’d last week. I used paper and fabric flowers from my stash adding some vellum leaves I have had forever…..

The lolly has been made by forming Bakers Twin in a spiral on a glue dot. I would love to claim it was my idea but I was inspired by a fabulous Sun card by Alissa in our Sun themed challenge #121. Thanks for the inspiration J

How inventive to modernize your image like that! One of the first things I noticed was the amazing array of earrings...that looks fantastic and the baker's twine lollipop was second...amazing! How great of you to really accentuate the image like that. Your card is wonderful. Love all those circles. :)
