So, I decided that the best thing to do was to make her a card - and here it is:
Daughter had new bedding to take away with her, in colours not dissimilar to those on the card - without the glitter, of course! I simply couldn't resist adding a bit of sparkle. I love this Bella - she looks so sorry for herself.
The dotty paper is My Minds Eye and the other bits are what I already had in my crafty stash - I think the burgundy is Bazzil.
Couldn't resist doing a couple of others, though, while I had my Prismacolors out:
I just love these Ketto stamps from (of course) Stamping Bella (told you that name would pop up a lot, didn't I). They are so delicate. Maisy Ketto is happy on papers from Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love Mini Deck, whilst Ivy Ketto is at home on DCWV's Latte collection. I love the aubergine, purple and green combination on this card. I used my Sakura black glaze pen for the hair on both girls, so it really has some definition. I love them both - they are so sweet.
I don't always get the colouring quite right and I'm sure I've got a lot of practising ahead of me, but I am pretty happy with the way that I'm using my Prismacolors with Sansodor (gamsol) - I'm definitely beginning to achieve some of the effects I'm after.
Anyway, Darling Daughter has received her card and is delighted with it - it went straight on her pinboard. A little bit of home in her new exciting world. Now, I just need another excuse to send the next one!
