Let them eat Cake
I've had this gorgeous image coloured for absolutely ages but what put me off was the bow on her sleeve doesn't stamp that well. I'm finding some of my favourite stamp companies their quality of stamps are not as good as they were and even though they are more than happy to exchange them sometimes I just can't be bothered especially as this isn't the first stamp its happened to, so I've started to avoid buying them which is a shame.
So I should have used a Memento pen to draw the line but its gone missing so it was a good job I used a white bow and no colouring was involved.
The sketch is from The Sketchy Challenge I think there's enough of it left to considered although its still a bit clean and simple for me but this seems to be the new me at the moment.
I used the Harrington vine die from Simon Says stamps and I've acquired a new punch from Martha Stewart for the flowers although the larger ones are a Elizabeth Designs one. The corners are La La Land die but even that has a bit of an issue nothing a sharp knife can't deal with still a pain though.
I could have layer more of her hair like the ringlets could be done separate has could the rolls but there were a lot of cutting with this for example each one of the bows.
Looks like things are looking up and I actually made two cards yesterday, lets hope this continues.
