Lovely Together


I'm dropping in with a jazzy card today. I've used Pippa and Sonny with Rose from this month's offer at DigiStamp Boutique. The offer has three adorable images with Pippa and Sonny.



Pippa and Sonny are colored with Prismacolor markers without a color challenge or designer paper as the inspiration. When it came time to put the image on the card I had to dig pretty deep to find something to go with it and I found that in the Butterflies and Blossoms Stack pack. After finding the psychedelic paper, I cut out some hearts from my Cuttlekids collection of dies and colored them the same as the rose Pippa and Sonny are holding. Then I outlined them with black pen and added some dimensionals to make them pop. The sentiment is from Verve's Heart's Desire is stamped in Graphite Black.

When I got to the background I decided it's a new year and it time for a new background technique. I chose two shades of color from my Prismacolor set and started making circles. I've never done this before so I was pleased with how it came out.

Here's a little side view to show off some simple layers.

Here's some new collections Sally-Ann has added to the Boutique. They are darling!
