Variations Week with Posy: Aletha’s View

Aletha here with my view of Norma J. Burnell’s Posy. I fell in love with Ms. Burnell’s “fairies tangles” a while back. When I found out that Lynette was going to carry the stamps, I went to town. Now you can also get them in digital format too. For my project I used the digital format.

Posy was a joy to work with. She did not need too many embellishments, but just enough so that you do not lose sight of Posy. I colored her with Copics and did some glitter accenting with a gel pen. I trimmed and layered Posy on red and black cardstock. The last touches were some designer paper, corner die cuts, and flat-backed pearls. I hope you like her.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, and R20
Hair: E25, 29, 31, 50
Background: W00, 0, 1, 2, and V01
Flowers & Tangles
BV01, 02, 04, 08
V01, 06, 09, 20
R20, 22, 27, 89

If you haven’t joined us at One Sweet Challenge, I hope you do. Our June challenge is “Hit the Beach.” We also have a little “art contest” going on in our Facebook group. That theme is “anything goes,” and you MUST use a Sweet Pea image.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you stop by and check out Sweet Pea Stamps daily inspiration.
