Gumnut Flower Girl + MIC Blog Hop Winner


To view my candy giveaway please click here  - winners will be drawn TODAY! Get in quick for last entries :)

Hi everyone! Sorry I have not been getting around to you as much as I would have liked. I have still been sick but I am hoping to catch up today! Today I have a card to share with you using the fabulous Gumnut Flower Girl from Make it Crafty. I have teamed her up with one of the background stamps; Daffodil Dell. Background stamps are a great way to add some more dimension to your images and they are a lot of fun to colour up :D
I really like to add a lot of texture and dimension to my cards so I added some jute ribbon, corrugated cardboard, and some Make it Crafty chippies. I love how simple and easy these are to use and they really add a nice depth to your projects. And I know I can hear you say it....there is NO CHEESECLOTH! :O Trust me I tried but it just wasn't working with this one hehe ;)
I coloured up Gumnut using my copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E13, E15, E18
Dress: YR000, YR02, YR07, E15, E18
Leaves/Vegetation: YG03, YG17, YG63
Flowers: Pink R20, R22, RV14 Yellow Y00, Y21, YR23

I hope you all enjoyed the Make it Crafty blog hop the other night where we showcased the new artist Marina! Aren't those Under the Water images just stunning?
