Yellow and Orange Honey Smirk

Here is one of my recent makes for a good friend's little girl. I love this cute image and I'm surprised  this is the only time I've used it.

I am also entering it into a few blog challenges:

The 'Sweet As Honey' image from Smirk was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using Copic markers:
  • Hair: C8
  • Dress: Y17, E57
  • Wings: E21, E51
  • Skin: E00, E02, E21
  • Shoes/Bees/Headband: Y17
A mat was created for the image panel using the Nestabilities Labels 1 die. I prefer to do this as you can create a smaller increment rather than matting two of the Labels shapes together.

The panel was coloured using the Tim Holtz Wild Honey distress ink whilst keeping the die in place, creating a non-coloured edge.

A strip of the butter yellow card from the DCWV Brights card mat stack was punched along both edges using the Scallop Dot border punch by Martha Stewart to create a border strip. A length of the yellow and orange striped grosgrain ribbon from the Chatterbox Tangerine ribbon pack was then attached across it.

This was then matted across a panel of the Informal paper from the Basic Grey Offbeat paper pad, and distressed around the edges with the Wild Honey ink.

The image panel was attached over the ribbon and highlighted with Craft Planet Yellow glitter glue.

Three paper flowers from The Crafty Cow were added to the right hand side of the panel and faux yellow gem stones were added to their centres.
