* Vera Lane Studio: Adorabelle

I am having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!


It's Monday again and my day to share my DT project for Vera Lane Studio.

Today sees the release of Adorabelle. She truly is adorable and comes in a 7 digi set with one sentiment, one black and white digi for you to colour and 5 Adorabelles that are part coloured.

 I made a card featuring Adorabelle.

I chose the black and white outline digi so that I could choose my own colour scheme. I went with a monochromatic palette of golds. I coloured the Adorabelles with Copic markers and fussy cut them. I added heat embossing to their dresses using an intricate mandala pattern and gold and bronze powders from Honey Doo Crafts. I added Stickles to their wings.
The background was made with Distress Oxides using the dip, dab, dry, repeat technique. I added some water to the centre to blot some colour away and added some light stencilling. I stamped some text along the side edges, then heat embossed the mandala in gold and bronze along all edges and finished by inking in black.
I added the sentiment that comes with the set, but I also think that Adorabelle would make a beautiful Christmas fairy!


I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
