I made a Tinkerbell card a couple of months ago that I was going to give to my DD for her birthday, and I still may give it to her on Saturday, but I've been wanting to make a wall hanging for awhile, so I decided to make a wall hanging for my DD as her birthday card. I also have an adorable Elisabeth Bell stamp that I recently won in a Crafty Friends Challenge that has been calling out to me and it seemed perfect for what I had in mind.
There's quite a bit going on here. I used a piece of corrugated cardboard for the base, did some painting and sewing, distressed the edges, added lots of bling and die cuts. Almost all the papers are digital papers from Cupcake Cards & Crafts. The sentiment was heat embossed with pink embossing powder.
Mojo Monday's sketch this week (#248) was perfect for this project. As you can see, I did rotate it 90 degrees.
I colored Chloe with Copic markers. For the clouds, I just punched circles out of sticky paper to use as a mask, then used my airbrush with my Copics for the sky. I edged the underside of the clouds with a gray marker. I made the apples in the basket green, because Granny Smith apples are my DD's fav! I added a little bit of sparkle with Stickles on the lace on Chloe's shirt, as well as the green dots on her headband.
I made the flower with the Rose Creations Spellbinders dies and backed it with a Memory Box die cut called Delicate Dahlia. I love that die cut! You can also see the Bird Flourish die cut really well in this photo.
My DD is really sweet, and loves anything I make, but I think she is really going to like this--especially since she can hang it in her room!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic 4th!!!
