Wee Stamps - Sweetie - Inspirational Post for The Ribbon Girl

Morning everyone! Hope you are doing well. It's been very cold here recently, in fact when I finally got home from work last night, it was so cold my hands just couldn't craft....all my plans were completely awry. Luckily I'd finished this little cutie a couple of days ago.

This is Sweetie, one of Whimsy Stamps' new stamps from their Wee collection by Sylvia Zet. I just love Sylvia's sweet images and this one is no exception.

I coloured her with my distress ink markers on Langton hot press water colour paper.

Vintage Photo, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Walnut Stain, Crushed Olive mixed with Bundled Sage, Hickory Smoke.

I you would like to see how I colour with Distress Ink markers, I've started a series of tutorials on my YouTube channel here. I gave her dress and wings a generous coating of Wink of Stella, but it's very hard to pick up on camera, you can just see some of it on the above close up shot.

I coloured her to match these lovely Maja Design papers from my stash.

I finished my cards with the following gorgeous embellishments from The Ribbon Girl.

Well that's all from me today, I do hope you liked my card, I have to admit that I'm really rather chuffed with it! :) xx
