It's a Girl

Since I am on a mission to use my existing stash, so far I'm pleased to report that I've resisted the sales, but there are a couple of stamps I have my eye on and my fingers are hovering over the 'add to cart' button.  (someone save me from myself please)

But not only that, in a moment of madness when I tidied my papers, I found some images I'd stamped about a year ago that were begging to be coloured, so I'm also on a mission to colour them to clear them out of my 'work in progress' pile.

The image I've used today had actually already been partially coloured but it was really pale and had no depth or shading on it, so I decided to go over it and give some depth to the colours.  After quite a bit of faffing it was finally at a stage where I was happy with it, and I was pleased I didn't just throw it in the bin.  The kitty was the hardest and I thought I'd messed the face up, but I added some stripes and he didn't look too bad.

I used some of my favourite papers in some pretty pinks, with pink and white embellishments to give the image a home.

A new technique called 'faffing'? Love the result ....must try it!Lol! Seriously, a gorgeous card with amazing colouring. I think, in fact I know, I have a box of stamped images that have not been coloured. Now you make me feel guilty!! Another job for tomorrow, is to find them! Hugs, Carol S.xx
