Little carrot-top...

At least I'm sure that's what she would have been called as an infant. This is the second of the images I did of the adorable head-shot images by Sugar Nellie, found at: Funky Kits . This little girl's name is Verity. Very pretty, but I'm not sure what it means. I decided to make an easel card this time. The papers are by K & Co.; the pearls (painted with my peach promarker)ribbon and buttons are from my stash. I made my own piece of blue "lace" and put it on the bottom like a ribbon. The back layer is distressed with scissors and like the other papers, inked with the Vintage Photo ink pad.

I made the flower using the smallest scalloped flower from Nestibilities, and cut them out of tissue and mulberry paper; you can cut up to 8-10 flowers at one slice. After stacking about 8 together and securing with a tiny brad, I crumpled the flower; then carefully pulled layers apart a little at a time. (The more layers you use, and crumple, the fuller the flower looks. This one with dots is made with tissue paper.)
Here's a close up of her head shot. I also have the complete images, but I'm more partial to the head shots, because you can see more detail in the face. Each of the girls have a different hair color. Joy, who I did earlier this month is a blonde; Grace is a brunette; and Faith has black hair. I'll be posting the other girls soon. Her hair and face is not quite this orange (as you can tell if you see the white background around her).
