Little Baby Blue Ashee

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
I did exactly as I planned this weekend, got the house work out the way before lunch and spent the afternoons playing, and believe it or not got three cards done :) two of which were for sheer me play time.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend too, going to have to be quick with this post as the X Factor is on shortly, and like to see if I can select the winner from the beginning................ did last year so will see for this year.

So here is one of my little creations from this weekend.  My very good friend April is having her baby is 3 weeks, so thought I ought to produce something a little special for her.  Now I just had to use one of the new images from the Emerald Faerie Garden, this one is called Ashee, he is oh so cute.

I made her a twisted Easel card, and could not help myself adding my usual array of embellishments, I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday
 The base colour is a deep chocolate brown, and I matched this with those gorgeous papers from GCD Studios Ella Blue.  I used some Bronze pearlescent paper to create the image frame with an MS POTP double hearts.  The tassles were hand made, and the pearls from the Hobby House.  The flowers were originally all white from Wild Orchid and have been air brushed with BG01.
I took components from the easel to add to the return, the sentiments on the easel and return are from My Sentiments Exactly.  All the edges of the papers have been distressed and diamond stickles added, I also touched the flowers with this too.
This is the tiny Ashee cut away from his resting place 
and here is the main image, both images have been coloured with copics and a white gel pen, the backgrounds have been airbrushed for the clouds.
