Make A Wish...Eloise Greengrass!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Happy Sunday everyone!

I had a humungous job at work this design an entire building (2 floors) retrofit with offices, cubes, kitchen and cafeteria, bathrooms and such to suit all the departments that make up our firm. I used to work for architects, but that's it! I'm thrilled to be given this chance to show what I can do though. Hopefully it will lead to more design work!

Besides that, I had a little fun this week. Last month, when I had my two stamping besties, Kadie and Mary over my place, I threw together a little card kit for us to work on. Well, time wasn't on our sides (to work on them) when they were here, so we took them home and agreed to share them with each other and our followers today! So along with you, I'm seeing them for the first time too!

Isn't she the sweetest thing you have ever seen?! Meet Eloise Greengrass from the Chichiboulie Fairie line of stamps from Stamping Bella. In the kit was this funky paper from Basic Grey, called Out Of Print, some paper flowers, a brad, some spotted ribbon (which I ended up not using) and some of this gorgeous lace.

I pulled out my reinkers and aquapainter brush and colored Eloise up in some dainty colors - Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet from Distress Inks. Then I colored in the background with SU's Cool Caribbean and Old Olive for the grass. The teeny, tiny sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages stamp set. I kept the layout pretty simple since the paper was so busy.

Now pop on over to Miss Kadie's and Miss Mary's blog to check out what they did with their kit! I know they're going to knock your socks off!

Thanks so much for stopping by this week! We're spending the day outside cleaning up the yard getting it ready for Spring. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

GORGEOUS!! Wow, Sandra! Eloise looks like she could walk right off the card; your coloring is beautiful! And I love how you chose to use the papers too. I also like how we used the same sentiment (we used the Force, once again ;) ) Thanks again for a Fab weekend and kit. Can't wait 'til next time!!

Sandra this is just STUNNING! I could watch you watercolor for hours. You are certainly a master of the aqua brush. I love the soft sweet colors you used. Thank you for such a fabulous kit and opening your home to Kadie and me. {hugs}

What a gorgeous card! I love that you kept the image square and worked the background so well! I am so glad your besties got to visit and still come away with a great kit that you got to share with your blog followers!
