Beatrix Potter Cutie

Well have I got a cutie today to share. For my design team assignment this week at Crafter's Companion I get to share a  Beatrix Potter image! These images will be available real soon and here is where you will find them

So this project has two different images-hope you like them.

I decided to make a little hanging plaque that was embellished with a few pieces such as a couple feathers and flowers.. I started by coloring both of my images with my Spectrum Noir markers. Now you know I wouldn't do a project without some fussy cutting.

I actually started with a 3 1/2 x 4 sized embroidery hoop...I have a few of these in my stock to alter.
I outlined the hoop with some soft blue ribbon to match a shade I used in my coloring.

The inside image was cut with a die shape and matted on a circle, I know it is hard to see what the inside image was pop dotted with a little thickness.While the image was in the die cut shape I used ink from my Spectrum Noir marker swiped on an acrylic block and ink dauber and used it to do the background.

Thanks for checking out my project today-hope I inspired you to try other projects with your stamps.

OK cannot WAIT to see Beatrix Potter! My babies' nursery was decorated in BP (which I had to make or were sent me by relatives in the UK, it was VERY hard to find here at the time!) so I look for items that I can scrap their baby books with that are BP related.
