Blue - Belle!

Hello, hope you all had a peaceful Easter! Today I have my DT card for Scribble and Scrap Challenge #17 (always , "Anything Goes") where you can win a £10-£15 voucher to spend in the Scribble and Scrap Shop.
I was inspired by the beautiful lemon papers in the Soft Lemon and White digi paper set  and as I love bluebells I decided to use the Bluebell Sprite 2 digi stamp  from Aurora Wings.
I laser printed the stamp and foiled it in black. It was coloured with my Copics and I also used my polychromos pencils (which I blended with a paper stump dipped in Sansodor).
I cut the bluebells, image and lettering and mats on my Cameo. To get the right colour to match for the bluebells I cut the heads and mat in textured white and coloured them in the same way that I coloured the character. I did the same with the lettering, it was a bit painstaking but I think it was worth it. Finally everything that had been coloured was covered with a clear wink of stella brush pen ... and boy does it twinkle!
I am still learning to use my new camera , so the colour isn't quite right in the photos, but I think I will try again in daytime , when the sun is shining!
Happy Crafting,
Denyse x

You're right. All of the extra effort was worth it. This card is beautiful and the softly coloured frame, die cut flowers, and letters look wonderful. This image by Mitzi is adorable and you have done a lovely job colouring it. Thanks so much for joining our Anything Goes/Spring or Easter Challenge at Craftitude this fortnight.
