Gretel Sitting Pretty



Cathy has designed a lovely sketch for Dutch Dare Challenge so I was pleased to be able to play along this week.


OMG 2 posts in one day must be a record for me but I just had to use this little stamp and Cathys sketch fitted her perfectly.

This is Cute little Gretel a CC Stamp available from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, what a cute little Pixie she is. She has again been coloured with Copics, I havn't deserted my Distress Inks completely and do have one card using them to post later in the week. I am so in love with these Nitwits Downloads I cannot stop using them and what a cheap way to have lovely papers too hand when you want them, I have become a BP download fantic now.



I am not showing the inside as it is really plain, (I have Donnas Fabulous Insert CD but need to get back to her on how to re-size them, my 1 brain cell cannot get the hang of it). Instead I thought I would show you a close up of the lovely effect Glimmer Mist gives you when sprayed onto roses.


Recipe:
Stamp Gretel available from Quixotic Paperie,
Papers - Nitwits Download
Tools - Nesties
Colouring Medium - COPICS
Embellies - Flowers, Wild Orchid Crafts, Pearls, Charm from The Hobby House rest from stash

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

This is beautiful! I guess I like pink more than I thought I did! LOL! Wow! I LOVE the way you colored her hair. So many highlights! And I know just what you mean about not being able to remember how to resize things on the computer! I have the same problem. Maybe we will both learn it by the end of the summer!
