Peek-a-boo Pookie!

Isn't this just the sweetest image!!! It's one of the new Lollipop images from Stamping Bella, called Pookie Lollipop, and she arrived at my house recently so I just had to ink her up! I was in the mood for purple so I reached for my favourite purply paper, Penny Lane from My Mind's Eye.
I started by stamping Pookie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and cut her out with circle Nestabilities. Then I stamped her three more times and coloured her with copics. I adhered the first image directly to the white circle so the flowers would go over the edge. Then I cut out the pot, ran it through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and popped it for dimension. Finally I cut out the three small flowers and popped them for even more dimension. The image is layered onto a circle of orchid opulence then onto a Blossom Nestabilities shape of intense kiwi. Oh, and I used Lindabella's fabulous "Lollipop face colouring tutorial" and it was easy peasy!!! If you're nervous about these little Lollipop and their faces, take a look at the tutorial in the Stamping Bella forum on Splitcoast. Here's a shot of the dimension.
The white card base is 5.25 inches square. I layered some intense kiwi and intense teal before adding the patterned paper. Then I used my new-to-me Apron Lace border punch on a strip of elegant eggplant before stitching the layers together. I find the large orchid opulence piece really sets off the image nicely. I never used orchid opulence until I found this Penny Lane patterned paper!!! The velvet ribbon is from my stash...I think it's old SU. I added a little sparkle to the card with three medium lilac Glitter Dots and some purple Stickles.
