On my 'relaxing' evening yesterday, I decided to take a stamp I'd not used before and find some papers that I haven't clapped eyes on for a while and team them up to create a card. This was my challenge to myself..
The paper was some beautiful purple and green Papermania paper from a while ago, but still as wonderful and vibrant!
What do you think??
I used the paper as inspiration for the colouring, so obviously it had to be purple and green. I used pencils to colour.
She is the cutest little stamp and a doddle to colour too. I really enjoyed getting grubby and inky and didn't spend too long on the colouring either - which is always a bonus with the pencils!
I cut out a part of a second coloured image and layered it together onto the first to give her a little more dimension. Even her bow was done the same way.
The flower was cut from white card and inked with lilac ink to match the colour theme.. I then scrunched it up and gathered it together with a brad.
The little tag was one I got free with a set of stamps - we do have some fantastic tag stamps out at the minute by Docrafts, and they always prove popular too - but I didn't want to use too big a tag on this one, so freebie had to suffice.
Well.. that's all I've got for now - off to do some more creating now I've been bitten by the creative bug again... now where did I put those pencils....!
