A Day for Kindness

I truly enjoy colouring, but I don't have much time for it at the moment. This weekend, I set aside time to do a little bit for me. I printed a darling little image from A Day for Daisies that I have wanted to colour for ages.

I used some older Basic Grey papers for my colour inspiration. I wanted to make sure that the paper I chose was a little retro juvenile in appearance, and this paper from the Lucille collection was perfect.

This sentiment is from the Friendship Assortment stamp set from Stampendous - a fantastic set! I cut the sentiment using Labels 1, #1 die template (with #1 being the smallest die template). I found that die template #1 from 5x7 Matting Basics A fit this image perfectly, so I used it to cut and emboss. Accidental perfection, I assure you.

I used the following copics to colour the image:
   Hair: E41,71,74,77
   Skin: E11, 50, 51, R02
   Dress: YR01, 02, 61, E15
   Ladybugs: R46, T0, 2, 4, 5, 9
   Sky: B0000, 000, 00, 12, colorless blender
   Grass: YG91, 93, 95, 97

This little banner was created using the Enhanced Banner die template. After I cut the banner I did a reverse emboss using the polka dot die that come in the set by running it through upside down. Then, I sanded the embossed polka dots and sponged it using brown ink. The leaves here are from the Aster Create-a-Flower set.

I think I liked the darling image of the girl and ladybugs before I sponged it, but there was nothing to do for it once it was done except to sponge the entire rest of the the card, which I like the effect of.

Thank-you for stopping by, and I sincerely hope your week is blessed!
