Ballet star


I coloured this gorgeous LOTV stamp whilst we on holiday in the cottage in Yorkshire. It is lovely to have a few images ready coloured on my desk waiting to be made into cards, usually I just colour as I need them. I find purples probably the hardest to blend but I keep practicing and the folds on her dress are perfect for this and I am pleased with how they turned out. I used MFT hearts and stripes and painted prints smitten. The sentiment is LOTV teenage girls and I used a Sakura clear star pen on the flowers. The images was die cut with a MFT zigzag stitched square and I also used a MFT scalloped edge die. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and I used a new Joy foliage die I bought at Thetford. I love the delicate look with the grey card so expect to see it used again soon.  The lace is from Crafty Ribbons.

Challenges
As you like it favourite paper pad (my favourite pads at the moment are from MFT. I love them all particularly the hearts ans stripes. The colours are so bright and he simple designs really appeal to me. The pads all mix together so well too.)

Great card, love your colouring. I tend to stay away from purples too in colouring as I don't feel confident with the blend. Seeing your lovely card has made me want to have another go though
