Little Miss Muffet Design Team Card (27th June)

Heeeellllloooo everyone

Well good morning, it's Monday and my turn to share my Little Miss Muffet inspirational creation with you. I've gone really zingy and bright today - I guess I was inspired by seeing a little bit of sunshine here in the UK. :p

I had originally planned to colour up this sweet girly with my watercolour paints but I changed my mind. I had already I printed her onto watercolour card so I decided to use my pencils and Sansdor instead - watercolour card as a tooth on it so it gives a slight textured appearance when coloured. To finish my card off I stamped lots of tiny hearts and flowers and added a die cut flower.

The digi stamp I used is called 'Polka dot Pals - Petunia' and she's available from the Little Miss Muffet store here.
Here's What I Did
Firstly I cut a piece of patterned paper to side and edged it with distressing ink and attached the A6 card blank. The image was printed onto the watercolour card and die cut into a small rectangle, and coloured with pencil and Sansdor (Sansdor is used to move the pencil lead around and promote blending, it gives a smoother finish).

Next I stamped tiny flowers and hearts around the main image and added glitter over the top. The finished topper was matted and layered onto complimentary card and attached to the card base.

To finish off I added white pearls, a die cut flower and a couple of leaves.
