So what did I do then?
I used Fancy Pants Down by The Shore 6" paper pad - perfect for this challenge.
And I just HAD to use one of my new Magnolia stamps ...
... and I coloured her with these Copics -
Skin – E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair – E31, E35, E39, E50
The rest – B0000, B000, B00, B12, B93, B95, B97, C00, C1, C3, C4, R02, R05, R17, R27. R59
I stuck it down onto a pretty circle which was die cut using a Spellbinders BEADED CIRCLES Nestabilities and then did a bit of stitching around the image which quite frankly scared me as it took me a while to colour he in and I was a tad nervous that I would go a bit wonky!!!
What a scaredy cat!!!!
BTW, if you get a sec do nip over and check out the DTY cardage because they are STUNNING. Not that they aren't always but this week I thought they were amazing :)
I used 2 border dies here - a Spellbinders A2 CURVED BORDERS 1 One Borderabilities Card Creator Die and a Spellbinders CLASSIC SCALLOP Edgeabilities Die.
You can probably tell but I LOVE these dies :)
I decided that I'd layer up 4 sets of Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember™ RIBBON BANNER Craft Die S118. I stuck the navy, red and white ones together with glue, just offsetting them slightly ....
... , and then added the pale blue one using foam pads.
So that's me all done for today.
I will be back tomorrow with my Papertake card and apols for being late but time just ran away with me yesterday.
Have the best day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
