SNP've got style

The Patti's Kids stamp line at Stamp N Plus Scrap N has some of the most fun images to colour. This stamp is called Laurel Dressing Up J2815. I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, using OMS to blend. Then she was fussy cut and a button heart was added to her stamped necklace. The heart was filled with Stickles to make Laurel happy...she loves sparkly things. She was then adhered to  brown cardstock cut with the TH Baroque die. Faux stitching around the outside repeated the brown and white dotted stripe in the paper and helped frame her.

The background of the card has a  piece of brightly coloured paper layered over the same dark brown cardstock. This was adhered to the card base leaving a thin border of white showing. The sentiment was computer generated, cut out in an oval shape, and matted with brown. Faux stitching and button brads were added before the oval was popped up on foam tape.

To complete the card, six butterflies were punched using an MS punch. Three were glued to the card while the remaining three were adhered to  the first three only down the center allowing the wings to lift. Small half pearls were added to the body of each butterfly. Easy, breezy, beautiful...hey, maybe Laurel can be a Cover Girl, too.

Thanks for visiting Laurel and me today. If I'd known you were coming, I'd have dressed up fancy like she did :)

Life is good; so is art.

Love the whimsy that the butterflies add to the design.
