Whimsical Dreams


This will be my last challenge card for 2009 and I am entering this card for the Sweet Stamping Up # 6 Challenge.

Following a sketch this time and the prize for this are some really lovely goodies from Stamping Up.

She’s a really sweet image from Stamping up and I think they have or are retiring her which is a shame because she’s a cutie. Also used the punches and sentiment from the same company.

Cut out the image with a nestie, inked the edges and then coloured her in with my new Faber-Castell water colour pencils. It was a milestone birthday this year and Andrew bought be the complete set in a box and it’s the first time they have seen the light of day, they looked too good to use. Added a MS shell border to the papers then stitched onto card. Not usually a peel off person but thought she needed a bit of a lift so edged the paper with silver borders. Ribbon from my stash.

I think she really reflects the end of 2009.Shirl
