A New Stamp

I bought this 'Mademoiselle Noel' stamp from Penny Black after Christmas last year and finally got around to inking it up. It is such a cool stamp and I really need to get some more from this 'series'.

I saw this card on Mariana's blog and wanted to try this technique.  I stamped the polka dots 3 times (imperfectly) with white ink and then wiped the ink pad around the outside of the kraft panel. The image itself I paper pieced and coloured her skin, boots and flowers with copics. Her dress and hat I paper pieced from the same card stock as the card base. For the white trim I used 'puff paint' for a little bit of texture.


Thanks for coming by :)
