Hey, Petunia!

Hello there, I am back with another Wonderful Wednesday with Stamping Bella. Today I am using the adorable Nice To See You Petunia. If you have followed me for a while you will know that I love pigs but I absolutely adore the little Stamping Bella chicks too, so this image is perfect for me!

I started off by taking a piece of white cardstock and cutting the bottom edge using the scallop Femme Frames die from Mama Elephant. This is a great way to get a fancy edge on cardstock if you do not have border dies. Petunia and the chicks were then stamped on top using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment is from the Budding Chick stamp set (I masked off the 'bud' portion of the sentiment using post it tape).
The image was coloured using Copic Markers. It is a little difficult to see in the photos, since it is such a light colour, but I added a little shadow around the centre of the image using BG11 and BG10 markers. This does look nice in real-life! I took an A2 card base and added a sheet of paper from the MFT Hearts & Stripes Paper Pad on to the front. The image panel was then added on top with foam tape.
