Back in my craft room today with a new digi I bought from Tiddly Inks. Christy Croll is the artist behind these stamps and digi images. I became acquainted with her sweet style two years ago when I was taking Creative Passion's self-paced Copic coloring class from Michelle Houghton. We practiced on some of Christy's images and then I bought her stamps from Stamping Bella.
digi images two weeks ago and of course needed to make a purchase! This one is called Fluttering By to Say Hi. This card is going to my sweet granddaughter, Quinn. I just got back from visiting her in CO. We spent a lot of time stopping on our walks so she could get her face right up close to marvel at nature - just like this little girl.
I made this into a window card, which you can see a bit better in the close up below. The dimension adds interest to the card. I used Stickles on the girl's butterfly wings, shoes and headband. Rhinestones adorn her antennae, each of the die cut butterflies, and the outside of the circle.
Lots of Copics were used in my coloring. I started out making her hair light blond, but didn't like it so I brought in some E's to give her a dark blonde or light brown hair color. This is a new hair color for me, so I am glad I started light!

Grass: I pulled out lots of markers from the YG & G and just flicked in blades of grass. I added some Y24 and R20 to tie in the colors I used on the girl and flowers.
