I have a card today featuring a digi stamp that I won during my very first week in blogland. I won it for commenting on a Sugar Nellie blog hop, before I had any idea they even existed, or what they were. I just commented on something I thought was pretty and hey presto! I had this most adorable image to play with.
Now, I didn't actually wait this long to make a card with her - I tried a couple of times before but I wasn't at all happy with the result either time. I was still new to colouring and struggled immensely to do anything I was happy with.
Well, third time lucky, because I am finally ready to "unveil" her, lol.
I used weather wood distress ink in the white panels, and Spun Sugar to ink the edges of the patterned paper.
I was especially chuffed with the shadow (done with distress ink, thank you again to Lou for showing how it's done!) It actually looks a little harsher in the photo than it does in person...
And of course I decorated the inside to match.
So there she is, finally! Such a cute image, and I fully intend to get the others in the set at some point!
