Easter Bonnet

This morning I was flicking through Scrapbook Magazine issue 59 and took a shine to Rachael Elliotts layout.  I stripped it all back and made it in to a sketch, earmarked a photo and put the magazine away to ‘forget’ the page as I didn’t want to copy it directly but just to take inspiration from it.

Then this afternoon I had a play and came up with this.

A few close ups of the details...

I triple bordered with a yellow colouring pencil, black extra fine liner and a bananafrog stamp.

Title with papermania letters and 'teen' alphabet stamps.

Papermania patterned papers, doodlebug embossed card and one of those photo clippy thingys (what are they called?!)

Stamping at the side and behind the photo in random circles from 'cupcake greetings' and 'build-a-bloom' stamp sets again from bananafrog.  I used memento grey fog, shadow ink in soft grey, versa colour in black and canary and dewdrop moonlight white.  The canary was far too bright so I inked some on to a craft sheet and mixed it with the moonlight white to soften it.

I'd like to enter this in to a couple of challenges:

Just Traceys Craft Challenge - Hat

Colour Create - Yellow, grey, black and white

That's all for now...
