Feeling like a Latte


I had planned to schedule this to post while I was snuggled in my bed BUT I spilt water on my desk yesterday; didn't get any important stuff BUT it did run over onto the floor & the power bar which meant I couldn't colour without my light!
I finally got a chance to do Jen's SFYTT - I look forward to her sketches every Saturday!
Latte a Bella is stamped with Mementos ink and coloured (where I didn't paper piece her; yes I am addicted to that!!) with copics. I paper pieced her top and the seat of the chair, the patterned paper is Basic Greys Porcelain - I love the soft colours and it's spring feel; especially since it is winter here again with a little snow & cold! I used cuttlebugs swiss dots on SU's pink pirouette and mounted the DS paper on So Saffron. Latte a Bella is mounted on both pink pirouette & so saffron. I added stickles to the flower in her hair; although you have to wait for them to dry I do like that they give dimension. Of course I needed bling and for this card I used large stamping bella bonbons in Cotton Candy

Thanks for stopping by; it's a holiday in Calgary (Family Day) which really means 3 days with my hubby home - which means not as much stamping time as I would like!!
