Nora blowing Kisses card

Hi everybody!!

After a kind of rough week with my two year old Amy being operated to remove her tonsils I took some time to myself yesterday to craft... nothing like a little bit of coloring to help me relax :). I decided to color op sweet Nora blowing kisses, a stamp that was part of the last release by Whiff of Joy. I loved all of the last releases by Whiff of Joy and decided to enter into the Whiff of Joy Guest Designer call. I did this with my new years-card two posts back but I now think this card would have been better. I did see some people entered two cards but I'm not sure if I should yet. What do you think... is this one better? Here it is: Nora was again so much fun to color, as are all Alison Acton's stamps. Here is a close up of little Nora:
I'll give you the Copic colors I used later today. The flowers are mostly by Wild Orchid Crafts and the papers are Basic Grey Green at heart and craft cardstock I bought from Elzybells which unfortunatelly doesn't exist anymore :(. As always I did the image in 3D and decided to take a picture to show you the image from the side... Just to show you how many layers it has:

As you'll probably be able to see I also added some stickles :). The sentiment reads "Dikke verjaardagszoenen" which is Dutch for "Big birthdaykisses" which I thought was just perfect for this stamp. The sentiment is by Kars if I'm not mistaking, it's part of a clear stamp set and the impression isn't the best so I had to go over it with a marker... I truly don't like clear stamps!
I'm entering this card into the Paper Sundaes challenge of this week which is distressing, I have distressed all of the edges of the papers with brown ink from again Elzybells (such a shame they closed, their materials were of such high quality!).
Hope you like my card!!!! Have a perfect sunday!!!

  8. wow Mariska...gorgeous creation...love the 3d effect too. Thanks for joining us at Paper sundaes this week.


  9. Wowwww Mariska,wat is ze schitterend,zo lief die stempel,mooi ingekleurd.
    Heel mooi papier en details.

    Even over die parelpen,ik deed het ook gelijk op me rand toen ging het ook niet.
    Nu doe ik het op een sheet en laat het 24 uur drogen.
    Dan haal ik ze er af met me nagel,en plak ze op me paper of rand.
    Dat gaat echt super.

    Liefs Riet.xx
