You may have arrived from Indah’s blog but if not you can start here and work your way around by following the Hop List included in each of our posts.

Now for my creation for this week.

I’ve used this cute Belles ‘n Whistles stamp called Pepper with Gift by Elisabeth Bell for my card today. This has been teamed with some lovely papers from Carta Bella called Prairie Flowers from their Giddy Up Collection. My image has been cut out using the Classic & Scallop Oval Nestabilities. I’ve also used the Heart Banner die from La La Land Crafts. A few pearls and some stitching on the paper finishes my card.

My image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20; Hair – E47, E44, E42, E40; Clothes – R85, R83, R81, R0000, BG13, BG11, BG10, BG0000.

Here’s another photo.
