Dance A Little Everyday

The lovely Lisa over at Wishcraft has vowed to use a stamp or digi image that has never seen the light of day, every Wednesday and has invited everyone to join her.  I have stacks of uninked stamps and unprinted digis so thought this was a brilliant idea and have tried to take part each week.

This week I was determined to use one of my gorgeous Saturated Canary digis and this is what I came up with.........

This is Zorana, A Dancing Gypsy and I am totally in love with her. She is such fun to colour although I will admit I was totally intimidated by her hair - lol!!   It took me soooo long to colour but I am very pleased with the final result :0)  I also got to use some gorgeous papers that I have had for simply ages!!

Medium - Promarkers (some with fine nibs!!)
Papers - Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking - Pretty Plaid (reverse side) and Sprinkles (both sides)
Flowers -  Prima
Die cut circle - Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs
Border and tag - Magnolia Doohickey
Sentiment - Freebie found on my computer with no name
Branches -  Martha Stewart punch
Ribbon - stash
Heart pins - Wild Orchid Crafts (coloured with a Promarker)

Why not join in and use up some of those neglected stamps or images - I am sure we all have them. You can link your card on Lisa's blog each week.  Well that's all from me for now. Have fun deciding which stamp you are going to use!!!
