Bella & Skipper

As I took part in the progressive freebie last time from Imagine That I got this brilliant image Bella & Skipper to play with which came with a sentiment ‘Hello My Friend’. I loved the little froggy and decided to use the Toadally Awesome sentiment, corny I know……

I used a sketch from Sketch n Stash for the layout and selected papers from the Animal Antics First Edition pad. The image is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I actually can’t believe how much green I used on this card. Regular listeners will know that it isn’t a colour I use much and this really is quite a lot for me. Maybe it is growing on me finally!

I used a Quickutz Cookie Cutter die set to trim down the sentiment and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch on the last oddments of paper to cut some butterflies. I quite liked the effect of layering the striped ones on top of the plain and folding the wings up. I must have seen that somewhere recently as I haven’t done that previously.

After adding a few gems in the centres of the butterflies and flowers I declared this card finished.

Materials Used in this Project are as follows:-
Card size – 5” square
Image – Bella & Skipper from Imagine That 
Sentiment – Toadally Awesome by From The Heart
Paper – Animal Antics First Edtion pad by Dovecraft
Tools – Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Quickutz Cookie Cutter dies, Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Embellishments  - Self adhesive gems
Techniques – Diecutting & Punching

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
