Valou - "Marika Collins", Inspirational Post

Good morning all! 

Valou here for my Inspirational Post. 

For this card, I used a flowery paper resulting from a small block as well as one pink fall of squared paper resulting from the same block. Edges are inked to the ink "Distress Walnut Stain".

Under the image, I stuck of the white lace and the sewn white satin ribbon. I realized a small bow with a piece of ribbon " blue Organza " and I stuck it to the right of my image. So, I decorated it with a small white flower in tissue.

I used an image " Marika Collins " of "Whimsy Stamps".

I colorized it in the following way:

- Ink "Distress Tattered Rose" and "Distress Vintage Photo" for the skin.
- Ink "Distress Antique Linen" and "Distress Walnut Stain" for hair.
- Ink "Distress Worm Lipstick".
- Ink "Distress Tumbled Glass" mixed with some cream " Creative Inspirations - Winter Frost " for a given lustre effect.
- Ink "Distress Shaded Lilac".
- Ink "Distress Pumice Stone".
- Pencil aquarellable yellow.

( Pads Ink Distress)

I cut the image and I stuck it on a die-cut realized with a dies " Spellbinders-Nestabilities - Majestic Ovals ".

For the rest of the decoration, I added the following flowers which I covered with some touches of "Glitter Stickels Icicle":

- Big turquoise blue rose (30 mm).
- White carnation.
- Pink and white carnation.
- White flower of cherry tree.
- Paper flower rolled pink.
- Turquoise blue Rose (15 mm).
- White snowballs.
- Buttons of white pink.
- Button of pink rose.

Finally, I added die-cuts "Butterflies" realized with a dies " Joy! Crafts ", " Border Butterflies ".

Thank you for your passage here and wishes you an excellent day!

Good Morning!
Charlene, here to post a little Whimsy Inspiration.  This is a  new card that I made using a new great image from Whimsy Stamps from designer Marika Collins collection called Nora. This is a super cute image that worked wonderful on the side step card I made. The corner die as well as the sentiment are also from Whimsy Stamps. The die is called Lace Doily corner and the sentiment is a rubber one called Ticket Notes.

Thanks for stopping by hope this has helped maybe get the create in you going today.

My creation today uses Muffin Girl digi from the Lia Stampz Vintage Girls Collection.  I love this gorgeous image and she was so much fun to color with my Copics and Atyou Spicas.  I used R37, R35, R32 and a dash of R30 to color her dress and bow.  I really like how this color turned out and how it matches with the papers.  I sure hope you like it too.
