The many faces of the Bling Maiden

I had some swaps to finish off and turned to my bestest friend for help - The Bling Maiden! I got to thinking of how many times I've actually used this stamp and the other stamps on the sheet and its a.....LOT! She is just so versatile and you can dress her up or not and use so many mediums with her and every one looks different.

I thought I'd show several of them so you can see just how different she looks with various mediums and even better is that you can colour her in 2 minutes or take more time and she'll look fab eitherway! You can use as little or as much embellishment as you like and use any medium, you dont need anything fancy to make this stamp look fab!

The Bling Maiden is available on an unmounted plate called Butterfly Beauties via The Stampman.

I know several of you have bought this from Create and Craft or the stampman so if you get her home and inspiration flies out of the window then have a browse and see how easy she is to colour! I hope you can get some inspiration and not be afraid to use her :)

You are so clever at thinking up designs. It is clear you love that stamp, I like it too, but would never be able to do it as much justice as you do.
