It was my teamie Choccy’s turnto choose and image for us to work with and what a cutie we have for you this time. We have the gorgeous Daydream Girl by Gert at Digi Blessings and she is such a gorgeous little beauty. I am sure we all know a little girl who looks just like her.

In a very rare move for me I have used light pastel shades to colour the image using Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I have selected papers to match from the Spring Feast & Boho Chic First Edition pads by Dovecraft. There is a lovely assortment of papers, many with a subtle glitter sheen and I have added Stickles glitter glue to the centre of the flowers and the buzzy bee wings.

I have used a sketch from Craftings Life’s Pieces which has lots of intricate layers. Paper punches are Martha Stewart and I have done some distressing with scissors. I have purchased one of those paper scuffers but find for me that a pair of scissors works better….

I have added lots of Prima flowers, using one of the green ones to make leaves by simply cutting the petals apart. The centres are buttons, the textured ones were a fab bargain bag of vintage buttons that I got from a visit to a National Trust property when they had a fair on. The stick pin decoration I made from a pearl headed pin with beads and a butterfly from a bead decoration that I dismantled. The fluttery butterfly is a clear Papermania sticker placed on paper and cut out. I have just stuck it down in the middle and curled the wings. The sentiment was cut using a Marianne die as a template.
