True Love


This is another Sugar Nellie stamp that I ordered from Scotland. Now if I could define a style that reflects what I like, this is IT...she is almost Picasso like with her big round head and wide eyes. I LOVE HER!!!!!!!! Since I am giving it to the hubs for valentines day I thought the colours should also reflect a bit of myself. Nice neutral golds and browns, simple design with tactile accents and a splash of red for colour. She was stamped in Versafine black and coloured with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. The lace is something I picked up at our local fabric store. This card actually looks fantastic sitting in on the dining room buffet! I may have to keep it there on display for a while after I give it to him.

Coming up I'll have a Stampavie Sarah Kay that I bought at pickle and an MFT that I stamped off from Pauline's stash.
