Gothic punk girl..

Well good evening..

I have had this stamp for ages (probably a year which makes me sound awful!!) and never coloured it!!

The other week I inked up one image of every stamp I owned.. Now while it took a lot of card, it was well worth it!!

I found some real gems - like this one that I forgot I had!! I took them all on holiday and in the mornings (and afternoons, when Sam needed a kip!!) I sat and coloured a heap of them in...

Now I love the image but not sure on the pics..the card looks so much better in real life lol..

so here she is!!

Now I had a little canoe accident on holiday (well not so little but rather funny!!) and my camera is full of water so Sam is taking my pics (thanks!!) so she keeps taking arty photos.. so I better display some before she tells me off lol..

The image is from the greetings farm
Flowers and ribbon I got from Crafty Emma's Store
As I did the MME Lime twist papers (scrummy!!)
The pin I made myself (woo hoo)

I am entering her into:

Hi Carrie, your holiday sounds like it was very adventurous, shame about your camera though. Love your card and such a cute stamp. I've lost count how many stamps I've not inked up over the years, horrifying when I think about it. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Scrummy papers indeed Carrie! Love the flower arrangement and the glitter - gorgeous!

Pink Sunshine said...

This is fab, I love the way you have coloured the image, and added the glitter - she looks a bit mischevious & fun.

Hi Carrie, great image, love your your colours and glitter. Fab embellishments. You make the cards and let Sam take the photo's they look great. Don't you just hate it when you make an awesome card and it doesn't show up the best in photo's? Great card and thanks for sharing with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
