Everything Goes

Morning guys.  Today I thought I'd enter the current Belles and Whistles challenge of Everything Goes.  The only rule is to use a Belles 'n' Whistles stamp in your creation so that's easy for me then considering how many of these cuties I have accumulated recently!

For this card I chose to use the Tea Time stamp by Belles 'n' Whistles.  Every time I see this stamp it makes me quite envious as I would love to be sat outside just kicking back whilst having a cup of tea and a biscuit!

In a way this stamp reminds me of when I was younger as my Mum took a picture of me of when I was about 4 years old, sat on a sun lounger with a big straw hat on (to protect me from the sun), eating my marmite sandwiches!

Anyway I am digressing..................back to the card!  The background papers are by Bo Bunny, the wording is from my Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet and the image was cut using a Labels Three Nestabilities die.

I stamped the main image onto Craftwork Cards Digital Smooth cardstock (which is just excellent to use with your Copics) in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured her using Copics. (I don't currently have the list of Copic colours with me but if I find some time I'll edit this later to include them.)  You might also just be able to distinguish that I add a slight shadow around the girl using a light blue Copic (B60), just to give a hint of sky around her.

All the products used on this card (apart from the Digital cardstock) are from The Craft Barn.
