So cute


Buttons and bows is our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and I chose to use this oh so cute image of Ella the elephant. I coloured her with Copics and was really pleased with how the colouring turned out using the W pens and a blender. I kept it very simple using Go Kreate frilly squares 7  and MFT pierced rectangle dies. I added some ribbon and wooden buttons tied with baker's twine. The papers are some lovely ones I bought at Doncaster, blissful pink from Anna Marie.

In the Pink anything goes

Off to see my Mum today to do a few jobs for her and then go out for lunch.
