Variations Week: Connie's View

I had so much fun playing with this adorable image
by Elisabeth Bell titled
"Little Curls"

You can find her over at

but only in rubber at this time, no digi sorry.

I colored her with Copics and Distress markers and
masked her off to airbrush the background.
I cut her on a SB circle die and matted over an 
embossed (folder by Darice) background.

Add some sheer ribbon by Reasonable Ribbon and diecut
some pretty paper flowers 
(die by Simon Says Stamp) that were cut
from pretty papers by Echo Park.
Added a sheer flower by Offray and
thought that was enough.

I wanted this pretty girl to shine on her own!
I really enjoy seeing what everyone does with the
same stamp and hope all of you
are planning to upload your creations as well.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oooh Connie, this is lovely. I love the colour scheme... nice fresh colours but in pastel shades. Your airbrushed background is lovely and the embellishments are just perfect - love the die-cut flowers and the pretty ribbon and blossom.

    That's a great embossing folder too!

    This all just works together really well and the pretty image really takes centre stage. :)


  2. Connie, this is gorgeous. I like the bright and cheery colours you have used. I so look forward to these Variations Weeks as it amazes me how one image can be turned into such different creations. Best wishes, Kym xxx
