Doing cute..

Cute is a style that I really struggle with – I’ve had a go at one famous cute girly stamp and while the children I made cards for appreciated them, I wasn’t ever completely happy. Nothing to do with said stamps – in fact I enjoyed colouring her and was happy with the results, just never felt I got the making up of the card right.   I think I may have found the answer  - I had long admired LOTV stamps but because I didn’t think cute was my thing, have only just got round to acquiring some. I still don’t do cute in the load lots of flowers, lace and swirls way, but I am quite pleased with this effort, which is for my great nieces fifth birthday.

SD532354She is coloured with Promarkers, matted on a Nestie die cut and  some freebie paper I’ve had from  a magazine for probably a  few  years!!   Of course there is stickles on her wings and flowers for added bling. 

I’m entering this into the following challenges -
I love Pro-markers – Sparkly Bling
Lily OF the Valley – Punch it Up  
Charizma Cardz – Something that flies
Crafters Companion – Here comes Summer
