Sweet fascination

Ribbons and Bows is the theme at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best this week.For full details on how you could win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop head on over to the challenge site.You could also be in the running to join us as a GDT.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s work while you’re there!

Here I’ve used Fascination from Digi Doodle Shop as the focal point of my card.So adorable!He’s been coloured with Promarkers and Copic Atyou Spicas to add some sparkle to the  butterfly.Glossy Accents have been applied to his eye and nose.The base card is a twisted easel cut from Grand Nestabilities Labels 1 and covered in patterned cardstock cut from the same die.The edges have been inked with Distress Ink to cover any white – it looked better that way!As the purple is quite a dusky one I livened it up with some bright pink card.The wide ribbon is actually recycled from my old pyjamas and was originally pale pink.I used Magenta Promarker to colour it to match.The only thing with this is that the ribbon can go a little stiff.It was actually a bonus here as satin ribbon can be a slippery little so and so.So no danger of the bows slipping undone here! I die cut a couple of double layered daisies to emulate the ones in the image and made the tab the sentiment is mounted on by cutting down another Labels  1 die.I finished with two different sizes of brad for the flower centres on the stamped and die cut ones.

This reminds me of the daisies I planted in my tubs a few years ago.Even though they eventually died off several have sprung up through my front lawn.I love this time of year when they start appearing again.Trouble is DH keeps threatening to get the mower out.Off with their heads!!
