Blossom Berry Sitting Pretty - Elizabeth Bell

Good morning from a dry Sunderland, it's not raining for a change, but oh boy have we had rain this week.  I keep seeing Wimbledon with sunshine and realise I live in the wrong part of the country. (Fingers crossed for Murray today).

Can I start by saying welcome to my 2 new followers, after looking at your work I am honoured that you took the time to look at my work. Thank you, and to everyone else too for the lovely comments that you leave.

So on to todays card. This is one of the new Whimsy Stamps releases. I couldn't wait for it and a couple of others to arrive as I ordered them directly from the USA.

I adore Elizabeth Bell's work, and there is so much detail in this stamp.



I cut her using Spellbinders Grand Labels 1, and made a faux nestie as a highlight. The tree is from Memory Box, fence from Magnolia Doohicky, butterfly Cheery Lynn and leaves are my fav MS punch.  Flowers and corner from WOC. (Smiling here as I just discovered how to show a large image)


She is coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils, and I added stickles liberally to the flowers. (If anyone needs more Flexmarkers Create and Craft have an AMAZING offer on at the moment)


The inside reflects the front.



I am entering Joanna Sheen challenge 'Summer Daze';  Cupcake Challeng #198 'Birds of a Feather'; (there is a tiny yellow one on the seat) and  Wild Orchid Crafts challenge #53 'Punch it out'.

Thank you so much for looking. Hope you have a great weekend.

You've done it again Eileen, you've created another little work of art, it's absolutely gorgeous. I too love Elizabeth Bell's work and recently bought a stamp of hers but with all the work I now have on three Design Teams I don't suppose I will get to use any of my new stamps for ages now.
We are also getting water logged but we did have days respite yesterday as the sun came out for a while.
Take care and see you again soon,
Andy
