Mabel Lucie Loves Springtime

I'm Gerrie Johnnic, more commonly known as The Queen of Grunge and I'm honored to be the Guest Artist this month at The Artistic Stamper. For my first piece this month, I thought that Mabel Lucie should come out and play in the Spring has Sprung challenge right here.




....and all those showers will surely bring Spring flowers! I paper pieced her yellow slicker and umbrella with a piece from my stash, and popped her up on cardstock that I colored with Distress Inks, making the clouds. The rest were colored with pencils and markers that I found atop my messy workspace. The flowers are a die. The background blue is a piece of Tim's paper, put thru one of his embossing folders and I used the Cuttlebug highlight tech on it. I'll see you again soon with a new post. hugz....
