Best Friend


How are you today?
Are you in the midst of hurricane Sandy?

Today I am guest designer over in The Shabby Tea Room....

Isn't she adorable!
This week we are to use the colors in the photo and a flower.
I used stamps from Paper Sweeties, Abigail  and  Banner Wishes.  All pattern papers are from My Mind's Eye.

I made toothpick pennants with the banner stamps. The twine and buttons are from Papertrey Ink. The seam binding is also from Paper Sweeties, ambrosia cantalope.  The tiny rosebud flowers are from Recollections. I used black ink from Hero Arts.

I used Copic Markers in E23, E50, E51, R81 and YR02. I made Abigails's dress from two paper flower petals. I inked them up with sweet melon ink from Color Box. I made her a little belt from the same seam binding. I added some liquid pearls to her eyes for some dimension. The label she sits on is a Spellbinders die.
Thanks for stopping by!
