Thinking of You

This is for TGF's Mystery Monday CASE with Craftypigtails and Anyone for Anya's no printed paper challenges. 

The base is light blue with layers of black and bright blue.  Since I could not use printed paper, I decided to punch out circles from scraps of the base paper, then adhered the circles in random patterns, and ran the piece through the polka dots embossing folder.  I then punched the scalloped border to go along the side, then added the sentiment from SU's retired So Happy for You inked in Island Indigo.  The image is TGF's Wild Sprout Stella and is colored in copic markers.  I cut her out, then mounted her on the background cut from nestabilities, inked with Soft Sky and the grass is inked with Lucky Limeade and then markers were used to make the grass.  I used copics to color the flower gems.  Last, I added the felt hearts to compliment the hearts on Stella.  Thanks for looking!  April

Terrific job with the challenge! I like the way you colored her and added the scene in the back. The layering of the papers was a good idea to.
Thank You for playing along with us at Anyone For Anya this week!
Tons of Hugs, Dangina

Wow, what a clever way to create a pattern on the paper without using pattern paper!
