Lacy Sunshine Sunny

This little cutie Sunny is a free digi image from Heather Valentin of Lacy Sunshine which has been given away  on Challenge #5 at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog. She has a very generous prize of $30 to spend in the store on digis and if you use one of her images you get 2 chances to win. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed as I love some of the new images and what a fab prize that would be to win!

I absolutely adore sunflowers as knew I NEEDED to colour this little cutie up, she has the most sweet face. I have a few of Heather's images that have been given away but this is the first one I have coloured up and it was a delight to work with. She is if course coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers.

I have used the latest sketch #13 from I {Heart} Sketches for the layout and used some of my favourite papers from Dovecraft in yellows and oranges.

The image has been diecut with a fancy frame by X-Cut and then I smooshed a little distress ink around the edges and mounted on 3D foam. I added some glossy accents to her eyes and some white gel pen to highlight them. I decoupaged a 2nd layer of the front of the flower pot and mounted with foam squares.

After sticking the papers to the card base I I used a Cheery Lynn die to cut some swirls to frame the image. I added some glittered fabric flower stickers and popped some red stickles in the centre. I added a butterfly sticker form the same sheet and the sentiment was a freebie from When The Scrap Hits The Fun.

Well currently it is raining in Birmingham, UK and has been almost all day. They say it will be 18C on Sunday so we shall have to wait and see if the weathermen have got it right. In the meantime I shall settle for the warmth and sunshine emanating from my card
