DTC #106 - Little Women

Happy Tuesday!!
We have a new challenge over at digital tuesday! It's Maria's turn to host the challenge, and she chose the theme:


Little Women

Simply make a card or other project using a female picture. Just be sure to include something digital on your project, it doesn't have to be the main image.


For my card I used an image from Mo Manning. Absolutely love this one!! I colored it with derwent coloursoft and baby oil, and copics for the skin tones.

My color combo was inspired by this gorgeous card by Crissy Armstrong.
No designer papers on this card. I used a flourish stamp with white craft ink on 3 of the corners. Embellished with some prima flowers and brads, and added some grosgrain ribbon. I used my sewing machine along the edges and the black paper strip.

I'd love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Stamptacular (girls and swirls)
Paper Sundaes (childhood memories)
Mo's digital challenge (how does your garden grow)

This week Digital Tuesday is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. Hope you get a chance to play along for a chance at a fantastic prize from the sponsor!

That's all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by my bog!

Have a GREAT day!

Oh Ellie, what a pretty and bright card. The stitching is wonderful. I never thought to stitch on ribbon, I am going to have to remember to try it. Stamping the flowers is a great idea to remember too! I never know what to do with the white flowers I bought.
