I'm in luuuuuuurve!

With Sweet Pea stamps! I couldnt wait to get my mitts on some of these as you know I LOVE fantasy type stamps :D Crafts & Me didn't disappoint either, very quick delivery.
This one is Ching-Chou kuik's Dance of Butterfly. I also bought Black Rose Fairy & September Rhythm. I want lots of them lol! Red Hearts is my fav, just waiting for it to come back in stock :)

Available in the UK exclusive to Crafts & Me or check out the main site at Sweet Pea Stamps.

I coloured the image with promarkers, the hair and tail are cool aqua and sky blue plus the blender. The belt and clothes I added in the agean. Butterflies are the same. The background is made with buttercup, canary and red & poppy with the blender and the bottom bit was purple then I've gone over with the cool aqua and sky blue which gives a mottled purply blue effect.
Skin tones used are ivory, blush and vanilla with oatmeal for shadow. I've coloured over her tail with a copic spica clear for some shimmer and added stickles to the top of her bra :)
The DP is DCWV from the Once upon a time stack. I felt this was detailled enough and the stamp needs very little in terms of embellishments so left it quite plain. The silver ribbon I've curled and placed a strategic glue dot here and there :)
