Happy Monday! Aletha here, and I hope everyone had a great and creative weekend. I know that I had a good one. I was in my studio most of the time. I love it when that happens.
My project this week is really for spring time. I know, we just got over Halloween, and now getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I needed some spring and summer colors. It seems like all I have been doing is Halloween. Now that’s over, and I have been dealing with fall colors. I needed some sunshine!
I would like to introduce you to Betti, from Rick St. Dennis’s Randi Dandi series at I Brake for Stamps. I colored her with Copics, of course, and added a few handmade flowers to enhance the spring time mood. I adore Rick’s Randi Dandi series. Most of the designs have marvelous hair styles, and I love coloring hair.

My handmade flowers came from several dies. The biggest ones are from Cheery Lynn’s DaisyStrip. After I cut them and before I assembled I added some Viva Décor 3-D stamp paint in metallic light blue. I then assembled and added yellow flat-backed pearls to the centers. My little green accents were created with Spellbinder’s Die D-Lites Blooms One. I added moss green 3-D stamp paint for all that sparkly. I have yet to make this die into a flower, maybe next time. I know that I am going to like it. The really tiny flowers are from Petaloo.
