One of my favourite stamps


I bought this stamp in 2009 and I have used it every year since then as she is one of my favourite images. It just shows how some stamps get used a lot and others have only been used once and some have been stamped and are still waiting to be coloured. I do love colouring her and each time I get a little better, she is a challenge with all those pleats. I love this card, in fact it is the card I would send to myself as it has so many of my favourite things on it.
Image - Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy
Medium - Copics
Papers - Bo Bunny Snowfall
Lace and ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Die - Spellbinders poinsettia with stamens from The Ribbon Girl
Other - Stickles, Viva pearl pen, charm, baker's twine

Stunning Marianne. I have this stamp and she comes out every year. I do agree she is challenging to colour. I loved her so much, I even stamped her, cut off the lantern and added a flower in her hand and over the holly at the back. Just so I could use her all year round! Hugs, Carol S.xx
