It's been awhile since I played along with my fellow Krafty Girls, and this week our challenge (126) is to add some spring to our step and make a spring themed card! I hadn't yet used this sweet Lulu on a swing from the March release, so I knew I wanted to ink her up for this challenge.
I used Jen's April SFYTT (there are still a few days to get your card in- Remember the amazing prize package drawn at the end of the year for stampers who participated in every month!!).....
I used one of the lulu's from the Springtime Lulu set. This is such a sweet set and comes with three Lulu's and six sentiments!
I added green pearls to the spellbinders die, and a paper flower from the dollar store (I know, right?) anchors the sentiment flag...some SU! ribbon was wrapped around the DP.
And here's a little close-up. I used sakura glaze pen on her hair baubles, the ladybug, swing bolts, eyes and shoes. Her pieced dress was shaded with warm grey tone copics to add some depth. I don't always do this, because I don't get to hung up on what looks real and doesn't, as these are paper cards! Not real ppl! But if I am in the mood, then I do;) Sometimes just to add some variation to two things that can run together if no borders are defined (the skirt part of the dress and the top).
Okay, check out the Krafty Blog for more Springy cards and link up your card for a chance to win some new rubbah! Oh yeah- don't forget about our FB fan page, where Kim has another generous challenge giveway going on:) There are still a few days to enter that one!
