Laila at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps

Happy Monday! Well I'm not so happy that I'm back to work today lol, but I'm super super happy that this is my first official post for Little Darlings Rubber Stamps!!
I still can't quite get over that I was asked to join the team, I mean have you seen the line up? Sooo much talent in one spot ...and then there's little old me quaking in the corner hehe.

I did have such a hard time deciding which Little Darlings stamp to use on my first project for them and they are all so delicious but this one has been jumping up and down shouting 'chose me' at me for a little while now.
She's Laila from the Dollhouse Premiere collection, these girls are all sooooo gorgeous and adorable, and you will not be able to contain yourself when you see the new release of these, oh my, so lucious!
(I do have to mention that I had the Eric Clapton song running around my head for DAYS, after colouring up this cutie)

So I stamped her up with Versafine Onyx Black ink on Canson Montval watercolour paper and coloured her up with my Distress Ink and Spectrum Aquatint Markers. I've listed the colours for you below, and at the end of my post are a list of links to the products I used from my favourite shops.

Colours used
Skin: Tea Dye, Barn Door, Tattered Rose
Hair: Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs
Clothing: Scarlet (AQT), Evergreen Bough, Evergreen (AQT), Leaf Green (AQT), Wild Honey, Sunset AQT

I thought this paper looked so perfect for her and I used colours to match. As I thought this card would be suitable for many different occasions, I added a non specific sentiment. 'For Someone Special' from the Vintage Affections - Love set.  The fabulous new Dewdrop Circle die was perfect as a background for both image and sentiment.

I used the following items from my favourite shops on my card:

Yellow Seam Binding
