Bronte Kisses!

Good afternoon all and hope that your weekend is going well? And how did you enjoy the Olympics Opening Ceremony last night (for those who watched it!)? We were sprawled across the sofas eating chocolate buttons & watching, and thought it was quirky, unique & bizarrely British! Just like the British people themselves really! Although the bits that made us laugh out loud were the Queen with Daniel Craig (phwoar!) and Mr Bean with the orchestra! A joy!
Anyway, on to today's creation! And I've used a gorgeous image from Mo's Digital Pencil - Bronte Kisses

Don't they just look so sweet together, with Bronte giving Bella a special 'doggy' kiss! And I hadn't noticed until I started colouring it in, the little plaster on Bella's knee! It's those little touches that make these stamps such a joy. 

I've coloured the image with promarkers & pencils (as always lol!), though not quite sure about my 'curly hair' colouring! The backing paper is from K&Co, and I just love that soft green/teal colour. I've been doing my usual trick of 'saving' papers I love - though quite what I'm saving them for I'm not quite sure! But decided that it was time to get it used! 
The sentiment is from the digi set with the image, and is lovely - although with Tilly the Dog I have to say she'd rather be sat on your knee (all 23kg of her!) than at your feet - lol! I'm sure she think's she's the size of a chihuahua! 
I've used a Marianne swirl die cut and butterflies, with a little added stickles and pearls, and some baker's twine & a cute little heart charm from Wild Orchid - thought it matched the heart tag on Bronte's collar! 
Hope that your weekend goes as planned! 
Back soon, Kim x
