Birthday Bonnet

I did a little colouring for fun yesterday, wanting to play along with this weeks’ A Day for Daisies Challenge that’s called Veggie Love and is an inspiration photo (see below).  So I printed this pretty image called Bird Bonnet for a pretty little scene.  I think she looks pretty darling.  It’s a simple card design just pulling out theme of the flowers along the fence to create an accent along the bottom for the card.  I trimmed the flowers out of paper to have that freehand open feel mimicking the stamped flowers and then added some freehand cut felt for leaves.  

To tie the colour of the fence into the design I gave it some green shading.  The sentiment is from a Verve set (Poppy Birthday) and I just added a little sequin into the flower center.  And for fun I used my blender pen to lift off some colour polka dots from her bonnet.  The way the pen lifted off the colour gives it almost a watercoloury look which I thought was fun.  

Here’s the inside of the design.  

And here’s the Copics I used.
