Vintage Izzie

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the Izzies and this Izzie has a daisy is my fav. I CANNOT wait until Emily releases more of them. I'll be getting the ENTIRE collection for sure.


When I showed Paula this card she said it looked just like hers...but I'd like to point out that mine has a coral skirt with a pale aqua jacket and hers was pink and soft blue! Just wanted to get that out there! She is so vintage looking I knew I wanted to pair her up with lace so I pulled out this very wide piece from my stash that I bought a while back at a local fabric store. A little bit of stitching and a demure bow out of satin edged ribbon was all it needed.

She was stamped on Bella's bestest paper with Brilliance graphite black ink and coloured with copics. I couldn't get the shading quite right with the copics though, so most of the shading was done with pencils and gamsol.

Like I said yesterday, it was a holiday here for some of us in Ontario. I did a bit of colouring and worked on my card for the Friday challenge. Well...I knew I wanted this certain piece of orange ribbon and do you think I could find it...so I pulled out my ribbon drawers and this is the mess that faced me! Needless to say I spent a good chunk of time organizing those ribbons! LOL! Not exactly how I wanted to spend a 'free' day off work, but it was time well spent.

Well, that's it for today, an Izzie and a ribbon mess!
