Happy Birthday Molly :)

My step-niece Molly is a real 'girly girl' and yesterday was her 5th birthday, so I thought this little cutie, from the 'Sherbert Pip' range of stamps available at Funky Kits, would be perfect for her seeing as she likes pretty dresses and bags too lol.
This is my take on Maria Therese's sketch over on the Sugar Bowl, image is Cherry Pip, coloured with Spectrum Noirs (turquoises for the dress/shoes, skin tone for face/arms/legs, putty from skin tones and bronze from essentials for hair, cool grey for outline. Added some stickles for sparkle on the image, and on some blue lace (behind the image) Papers are Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose download collection, flowers from stash (the 2 largest were white but coloured them with spectrums to make them match)Scalloped border cut with a nellie snellen border die. Peel-offs and die cut sentiment also from stash.

Tilda wedding - take 2!!!

After one of my friends saw the wedding set I'd made, she asked me to make a boxed card the same for her sister who gets married this week. Well, I didn't make it exactly the same, but tweaked it in places to make it the same enough to be what she wanted, but not identical - added a couple of different flowers, different glitter, words etc

As before, papers are pink petticoat vintage rose collection, flowers, gems, glitter, peel offs from stash, tilda and edwin image coloured with promarkers
