Willow With Sunhat
I've been in a soft color mood lately. I think it's all the wishing for spring weather that's doing that to me. When I received my Spring Collection from Whiff of Joy, I fell in love with Willow With Sunhat. She looks so pretty with her hat with the fresh spring flowers on top and her satin bow. I so wish I could wear hats but if it's not a baseball hat, I can't carry it off.
I stamped Willow with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with my copics. I added some Bella Baubles to the corners and to the middle of the Prima flowers and spacers. This background paper is one of my favorite pieces and I must have 5 or 6 sheets of it. I'm stingy when I use it and it only goes on my favorite cards! The ribbon is from my stash. For the ribbon on her hat, I used some Glossy Accents to make it look smooth and shiny. Her flowers are highlighted with my clear glitter pen. I think she looks very fresh and springy.
This Willow image is so beautiful on it's own that it doesn't take a lot of doctoring to make her stand out. Sometimes I think less is more and this is one of those cases. I so wish for spring weather and that's what I had in mind when I was putting Willow together. Yep, less is more and I want warmer weather!
