Claudia's Tutu

oooh my first post of 2014...Happy New Year everyone!
Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and crafty 2014, and with emphasis today on the 'crafty' there's a new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges, and to kick off the year, we have a sketch for you...

Here's my take on it...

This image is Claudia's Tutu, and i've coloured her with promarkers, cut her out, then stuck her down with foam pads over a die cut frame shape (cArt-Us die).
The papers used here are Dovecraft vintage christmas (spotty), and Sizzix 'little sizzles - country' (both yellows, the plain yellow having been embossed with my stylised flowers embossing folder)
I punched and layered the flowers and added a bit of sparkle to the centre of each with a crystal gem.
The green die cut leaves are the last few left from a pack that I bought quite a while back from a well known auction site.

Hmmm, now i'm not too sure I should have used yellow, but I supposed it's different from the 'norm'.

To see what the other Little Misses have made using this sketch, please pop over to the challenge blog :)
