My Crafty Heart DT Card - 'A Little Kiss'

Good evening! I have another wonderful image to show you today... it is called 'A Little Kiss' and is one the new range of Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp sets available at My Crafty Heart. Isn't it adorable?

The Stamp comes with the following sentiments also: "Happy Anniversary" and "Hugs & Kisses", "Sent with a Wish" and "With Love". I stamped these images before my Birthday and I have somehow mislaid all the Sentiments that I stamped!!! :-(

The Mabel Lucie Attwell sets all stamp beautifully and are a joy to colour. I've used the gorgeous "Howdy Doody" pad again - I love how bright and cheery these papers are!! I used the reverse side of the stripey paper for the "Delicate Vine" border. I love this border - it cut beautifully first time and think I will use it a lot.

 Colouring Medium: Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Skin: Putty, Sunkissed Pink
Girl's Hair: Primrose, Mustard
Boy's Hair: Champagne, Cappuccino
Greens: Apple, Meadow Green
Oranges: Honeycomb, Light Peach, Prisma Pencil
Aquas: Soft Aqua, Cool Aqua
Flowersoft: Autumn

Thank heavens for Prisma Pencils! I coloured this image a couple of nights ago and when I came to make up my card saw that the orange looked dreadful and SO unblended!! It might be that I was working by lamplight!!! but anyway managed to find a Prisma shade to blend it all together! :-)

I've used some of the new Flowersoft that is in stock at MCH. This shade is 'Autumn' and is perfect for this sunny card! So I've added some little flowers to her hair and in her bonnet. I think this will be an Anniversary Card or Valentines Card.

The following are all available from My Crafty Heart - please click on links to see :-))

Stamp: Mabel Lucie Attwell - "A Little Kiss"
Papers: My Mind's Eye - 'Howdy Doody'
Die:  Memory Box  - 'Delicate Vine'
Flowers: Prima Dollhouse Collection - 'Marilee'
Charm: Fruit Charm Collection - "Cherries"
Ribbon: Gingham Ribbon - "Yellow & White"
Small Gems: Hero Arts - "Small Mixed Gemstones"
Large Gems: Hero Arts - "Sunshine Mixed Accents"

The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

Jules said...

Hi Sue

I love this very, very much!!

Mabel Lucie Attwell has a special place in my heart and I have a book full of pictures and poems I was given at the age of 5 or 6. I used to read it every night before I went to sleep.

This picture isn't in my book though!

Your card is gorgeous. A great layout and your image is coloured beautifully.

Hope you have a lovely Easter break.

Love Jules xx
