Spread a Little Cheer

Happy Wednesday Digi Bell Friends!  I hope you are all beginning to feel the signs of Spring the way that I have been the last couple of days.  (Well, at least on my side of the hemisphere)...  =)

I thought I would share a little project that I made using "Rachel Little Angel" from Elisabeth Bells Digital Collection.  Elisabeth definitely named this little doll appropriately. 
She truly is an angel.  Just too cute! 

I created a seed packet!  I have put some wild flower seeds inside, and thought that it would make a great little gift packet to give away for the welcoming of Spring.

When I began coloring little Rachel, I started out using Copics, mostly for hair and skin.  I then decided to switch things up a little bit and use my Stampin' Up water color pencils.  So I do have a bit of a mixed media look to my image here.  Each of the little punched flowers that I used were also colored using the water color pencils.

I kept the back of the seed packet quite simple really, only adding a small circle to use as the closure.
This image is also an Elisabeth Bell design, but is licensed to Belles 'n Whistles.  I didn't seal this packet for the picture, but it has double sided tape there, so that once it's closed, I wouldn't attempt to open it again until I was ready to use the seeds.

Are you all getting ready for the blog hop that is coming up at the end of this week?
Be here on Friday, at 9:00 AM (Arizona Time) for a look at this months newest addition to Elisabeth's Digital Collection.  Be prepared for a surprise, and a couple of fun chances to win.

Thanks for stopping by today, if any of you decide to create a seed packet, I'd love to take a peek.  =)
