Elizabeth Bell’s World


Entering for the Elizabeth Bell’s World October project which is to make a 3 x 3 note card box or tote. I opted for the tote bag because I will be making a box for the Swaps Anyone at Lets Ink It Up …. hop over and have a look.

I know I used the same image as last time …. different colours though …. but I can’t get enough of her she is gorgeous …. can you believe I looked just like her when I was younger …. if you believe that then I know you think pigs fly.

The sentiments on the little 3×3 cards are all a digi download and you can buy them from Raindrop Echo Designs at Whimsy Stamp Store they are easy to use and the sentiments are adorable, just right to cut out with your nesties or any other die cuts you have. I made these ones quite small because they had to fit onto a little 3×3 card but it didn’t affect the quality whatsoever. Used my Promarkers again because I wanted her vibrant looking …. I use my watercolours when I want a softer effect.

Does anyone else have this same problem or is it just my camera. the top right picture is the true looking colour of the card I used, it is a lovely sort of teal colour but the other images look very blue to me and yet I took them all at the same time. If I get time will try and take again to see if I can get the proper colour card on all the pictures, if not, ah well I can live with them because I have the real thing to look at.

    These are beautiful. I love the colours. Yes I can see what you mean about the teal and the blue. I have looked at the swap challenge. I want to have a go at it, but I am bit nervous.
