Cherry Blossoms… that’s me Ü
for this fun, fun blog hop!
I’ve had such a great time everyday seeing all
of the humorous and very creative ladies!
A great big thanks to Amy Bradley for providing
the fantastic appliqué pattern for this hop…
Well, appliqué is my favorite technique,
but I do love my little markers and stamps,
and just had to pull out a few of these little tools
for my girl..
I drew the design! yeah, no appliqué, can you believe it?
as I was saying, I drew with pencil and added a little stamping
with a gray ink,
then outlined everything with a Uni-Pen…
Next, I added color with my Fabrico Pens….
I just love these pens Ü
(… need a few more!)
then embellished my crown with a few Swarovski Crystals,
added Magic Transparent Perfect Pearl Pen to the lips,
glasses, cupcake stand, and cherries… needed a little sparkle!
and Maggie’s eye got a little shine too…
here she is as sweet as ever Ü
I had so much fun working on this little project;
the little quilt looked so bland when I first drew it…
hubby just looked at it… and wondered… he he! he loves it!
I have to confess, I had no idea how it would turn out
…it was the last thing I colored in!
all those little squares, so I had to cheat a little
with all the little dots and squares…
I really like how it looks Ü
This is the back of…
yeah, I forgot to tell you…
it’s a composition book cover,
…and some of my favorite things!
Oh my word, I had such an awesome time
working on it, I just had to make myself
stop! or it would have been a quilt… ha ha!
I’m so happy to have you over today
and hope I’ve inspired you to try something new!
