Sweet as can be!

Happy Thursday to ya! Hope you are having a great week so far! I can't complain - my kids are all well (for now) and life is going well!

Here is another digi image from ATS - this is Kiki La Rue. Don't you just love saying that over and over? Reminds me of something out of an old Doris Day movie like Please Don't Eat the Daisies or Pillow Talk - not sure why, but it does. (Yes, I know, I was born in 1975, but they just don't make movies like that anymore! I loved to watch those with my Mom when I was in high school.)
When I saw this image, I knew I had to have it and I had to use some of my new BG Lemonade paper! I also decided that my new Bermuda Bay paper along with some Pretty in Pink & Kiwi Kiss looked nice with it.
I colored her with my Copics, cut her out and layered her with foam tape on an oval airbrushed with YG00. (I am trying to get my money's worth from my compressor!)

I made the flower embellies using SU's Boho Blossoms punch. I punched one of each shape, snipped each petal so I could bend them up, pierced them with a paper piercer and then adhered them together using a BG Lemonade Glazed Brad. I then bent and smooshed (is that a word? it is now - in fact it is a very technical term!) all of the petals up to add dimension. The leaves are a SU Sizzlit exclusive - little leaves. The sentiment is from another ATS digi set - Sweet Treats.
Lastly, I used a Martha border punch and my sewing machine to add a little interest around the edges!
Here is a close-up of Kiki (whispering "La Rue"!!)

Here are the Copics I used:

Supplies: Stamps - Kiki La Rue Digi & Sweet Treats (ATS); Paper - Bermuda Bay, Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss (all SU), Stamper's Select (PTI), BG Lemonade DP; Ink - Copics; Accessories - Copic ABS, Boho Blossom Punch (SU), Lace Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Lemonade Glazed Brad (BG), sewing machine, Leaves (SU Sizzlit)

Have a great week! ~Tori
