Baby Buttercup...

Playing with my Stamping Bella-Baby Buttercup! I was really exploring a mixture of copic markers and prisma colorpencils. I generally do my color pencils first, than do a slight overlay in shading with the copic markers. Just be careful if you try this, I don't recommend this technique with light colors as the color pencils will stay on the marker nubs. All in all, I'm happy with the blending on the flower...deep blueish purple. The quilting squares are done with my PTI-Polka Dot Basics and I did a simple stitch around each one. The mini sentiment is cut out with my cuttlebug...oooooh, how I have neglected Lastly, I added some deep purple's actually a single strip hidden behind the card front and I add the bow separately with E6000 like a charm! Close up of the sweet buttercup! I was going to add some 3-D pop up tape but thought it might look funny sitting up so high. I opted to cut out another baby image and simply taped it on top of the original...adds a subtle depth without being overwhelming.
