My Crafty Heart - DT Card - 'Sweet Eline's - Flower'

 Hello, hope you are all well... it's been a lovely sunny day today! Just how I like it - not too hot but you can feel the warmth of the sun! I had a lovely crafting afternoon today and finished off this card.  The gorgeous image is a Nellie Snellen stamp called 'Sweet Eline's - Flower' - isn't she adorable!! A dream to stamp and wonderful to colour!!

I've used some Kaisercraft - 'Miss Nelly' papers. They are really lush and remind me of Summer. I've kept my colouring soft and used pastel shades as she looks such a delicate and dainty fairy!! and I've added some of my favourite Ultra Fine Glitter in 'Candy Floss' on her wings.

Colouring: Promarkers
Skin: Putty, Sunkissed Pink
Hair: Caramel, Cocoa
Rose Pink, Blossom, Pastel Blue, Cornflower, Meadow Green, Pear

All the following that I have used are available from My Crafty Heart .......

STAMP:        Nellie Snellen - 'Sweet Eline's - Flower
PAPERS:      Kaisercraft - 'Miss Nelly
GEMS:          Kaisercraft - Sparklets 'Fern'
FLOWER:   My Crafty Heart - 'Resin Flower 'Spring Dreams'
DIE:              Memory Box - 'Vivienne Butterfly'
PEARLS:     Melissa Frances - 'Trinkets & Baubles Pearls'

The sentiment was made on computer.
