Well,I think this is something sweet in lots of ways ūüôā This is Strawberry Delight by Crafty Sentiments Designs¬†all coloured up with Copic Ciao Markers.A few white gel pen highlights have been added too.I’ve thrown in lots of stitch effect dies along with¬†this fabulous strawberry die,a new buy of mine ūüôā The sentiment is a bargain stamp I’ve had for a while and suited the theme and image perfectly.The centres of all the flowers have had micro beads adhered in place.I’ve never used them before (even tho’ I’ve had them ages) and I think I got most of them everywhere except on the card – LOL ūüėõ

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Autumn Colours.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super surprise prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s my interpretation featuring the delightful Primrose – Butterfly Girl ¬†by Crafty Sentiments¬†all coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.Her wings have also be given a sparkly covering of Glamour Dust ūüôā A few touches of white gel pen have given¬†her eyes and teeth,along with the spots on the fly agaric style mushroom,some extra pop.A couple of dots also create¬†a little shine to her shoes.The lovely papers are First Edition with top one being glittered.They’ve been teamed with some kraft card,wooden embellishments and one of my faves,jute twine,for a rustic feel.I chose some Prima Flowers following the Autumnal colours theme and just had to sneak in a hedgehog ūüėÄ He’s so cute.I bought him a while ago on sale,which adds even more appeal ūüėČ Being a die I can make as many of these little guys as I like too ūüėÄ
