Sometimes I think you just need to go back and revisit some good times in your life. In my creative life, it brings me back to when I first saw a Whiff of Joy stamp that Elisabeth Bell had designed and I fell into instant love! There was such a sweetness and purity about her designs and I knew they were for me! One of the happiest times for me was when I was first started on a couple of design teams and Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs was one of my first design teams and I absolutely loved it! In got to work with some wonderfully creative people, some of the best in our field, Suzanne Dean, Danni Bindel and lots of others. When I heard we were going to be doing of of Elisabeth's brand new lines, I was so ecstatic that I jumped up and down and yelled and hollered! Crazy, it may have been, but I just couldn't believe my good luck.
For our challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog, Lynda has challenged us with a theme of "April Showers Brings May Flowers", and asked us to use lots of flowers and springtime colors. I pulled out my sweet "Emma", who is one of the gorgeous images from that first release with Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs. You can see all of Elisabeth's available stamps at Susana's shop here.
She's still one of my all time favorite images of all time! I love her innocence and sweetness. She's colored with copics and has some stickles on her pants and top, and some Diamond Glaze on her headband and ribbon on her top She's cut out and framed with Nestabilities and the gorgeous papers are from My Mind's Eye. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the flowers are handmade and I added some Martha Stewart branches to her.
Here's a couple of close ups of this cutie pop. I could just eat her up! I am going to enter her into the following challenges:
