Phew! 4th New Release post...and I saved my fav till last...

Hello Again,

Well, this is my 4th post for today showcasing the New Release Betty Boots stamps (there is one more but I'll share that soon!), don't forget before you go to press the Home button to take you back to all my posts so that you can scroll down to see the other 3 New Release's I have showcased.

All of the new Betty Boots and of course the fabulous Sugar and Spice can be found in their Etsy shop HERE so don't forget to take a peek :D

So here is.....Spring Song Betty

Spring Song Betty

As always, match the insert...but no fancy purchase of insert paper, use the off-cuts from the main design! Top Tip!
Isn't she just yummy!

Here's the how's:
Spring Song Betty has been coloured with Copics and as she is Spring Song Betty I gave her vibrant colours (way out of my comfort zone!), and she is coloured on 300gsm super smooth card (from That Craft Place.  I have used Shabby Green Frantage around her to add that touch of sparkle.
The backing paper is Botanical Tea from Graphic 45 and I adore it :D  The postage stamp elements are also from the same pad, hand cut so I could dot them around the design.
I have used Papermania pale yellow card stock to mat and layer and also for the bunting die cut (its a Joanna Sheen die) and for the fan die cuts under the flowers.
There is just the addition of flowers and white spiders web to finish the design.
I have corner punched so of the corners to add a little extra detail, just in case it needed it lol

Here's the close ups:

layering of the papers

Small clusters of embellies works well

Had to add a hidden something!
