Sunday inspiration at Live and Love Craft

 Hi Bloggers!
I want to show you a note pad holder I made for today's inspiration over at Live & Love Craft Inspiration and Challengblog. I think it is a great gift idea! You can find the tutorial on the very talented Mariannes blog.  I used the lovely Pion Design papers, they are so pretty I hardly needed any other decoration at all (no c&s thinking here, lol). 

 I used both sides of the gorgeous Pion Design's  Poem of Spring sheet from the Fairytale of Spring collection.  I distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.
I used Magnolia Doohickey's (dies): The The Heart Swirl and the Doily Flowers. Also, behind the image is the Scalloped dotted lace die. I got those adorable charms on eBay ages ago, the cat and the cow *so cute*.

I colored the Magnolia image with distress ink pads to get that soft feel to it. 
I used: 
Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Greens: Peeled Paint (gloves and head-thing)
Blue's: Faded Jeans, Stormy sky (jeans, shadow)
Red/on: Fired brick, Wild Honey (carrots and reddish)
Browns: Brushed Condoroy , Walnut Stain(shoes and ground)
For the shadows: Black Sooth

Hope you like it! 

Wishing you a fabulous Sunday!

Din färgläggning med Distress Ink är underbar, du har verkligen gett liv till ditt motiv, helt underbart!
Fantastiska detlajer och kul idé med memo-hållaren! :)
