"Our Little Ones" by Alison Hall

Hi Everyone! Here's a quick little card from me, using one of my favourite colour combinations and a sweet little vintage stamp set by The Artistic Stamper, called 'Our Little Ones'. You can buy it as a collage image, or as separate images. I used the separate images sheet.

First I took a square of white card, and inked one half with spiced marmalade distress ink, then the other half with broken china. Then I stamped the dots background and the dogtooth background with the same inks. I stamped flourishes in opposite corners, then edged the card with black ink, and matted it onto a square white card blank.

Next I stamped the words from 'Our Little Ones' on a small square of card, with the broken china ink, and stamped the little girl in Archival black over the top. I used a waterbrush & the distress ink to colour her dress. I edged the card with the blue ink, matted it onto black card, then adhered it to the centre of my background.

I stamped three butterflies (from Insects & Butterflies No 1) in black, overstamped them with a script stamp in the distress inks, cut them out, and adhered just the bodies to the card, lifting the wings slightly to add some dimension.

Thanks for looking!
