sugar and spice...

It´s friday and so it´s my turn to give you a little inspiration.

I´m sorry but I don´t have another sneak peak to share - seems like my postman started stamping and decided to use my brand new stamps for a while before delivering them because they still haven´t arrived here... If anyone sees them - send them home right away pretty please! ;O)

It´s thelast day before easter break here in Germany and so I thought I´d use

High School Student

She seems to love to go to school - for sure because all the boys there love her and her sassy style - but I am also sure she´s going to enjoy the break!

I wanted to not color her too dark and so I left the lightest areas of the image white. And so I also didn´t have to use many markers for the coloring:

I used a black Prismacolor pencil to do a little shading - just a wee bit at the darkest areas of the image.

The papers are from different branks like K&Co and DCWV, saying a modified image from
StudioG. And then I got that ABC-stamp from Catslife Press in the mail this week and it was just perfect to use here.

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend and hope many of you will join us for the hop!

  7. gorgeous card, I just made one using her, need to blog it later x

  8. I like the selective stitching & the light colouring - really effective & that alphabet stamp is a brilliant addition. I like the way the circular elements reinforce the spots of the paterned paper & the colours are just wonderful - warm greens & turquoise works brilliantly with the gold & yellow.
