Wee Stamps - Snowflake Dancer

Ok so.....make sure you're sitting down....I made another Clean & Simple card. I know right?!
Those of you who have been followers of mine for some time now will know how difficult I find these. This one was no exception, once I had the image coloured up and cut out I really struggled with it. I knew I wanted to keep it clean to showcase the beautiful drawing by Sylvia Zet but I kept feeling that I should add more. Luckily I resisted, because now it's finished I really love it.



I coloured her with my distress ink markers, this beautiful blue is one of the newer colours Blueprint Sketch and comes out quite Violet toned when diluted.


I outlined all the clothing hair and snowflakes with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen - Clear Star. This adds a wonderful soft metallic sparkle and I wish the camera would pick it up properly, because it looks so pretty in real life,


I had this sentiment stamp laying around in my drawer and it was the perfect size (and sentiment) for this card and just filled in a little bit of that white space without looking too fussy. The silver ink complemented the style of the painting perfectly I thought.

That's all from me today but I'll be back to share more inspiration next week.
Have a lovely weekend! :) xx
