All Wrapped Up


Truly Scrumptious (43) - Sketch
Crafty Creations (90) - Red/Brown/Green
Totally Papercrafts (39) - Stck A Number On It
Whoopsie Daisy - Let's Paper Piece

Ever since I have had this stamp I have thought she might look good in tartan so I finally had a go. I will be the first to admit my choice of colours for her cape and inside the bonnet kept going horribly wrong so in the end I went over it all with brown to hide it. Although I'm not totally happy with that bit I think it just about works. Having coloured her with Promarkers I then paper pieced her dress and hat. I have also flocked her muff. The dark green card has been embossed with a holly branch and the snowflakes have been punched. The date on the little strip at the bottom was done using rub-ons and I have highlighted it with a punched buckle. Finally I added a few gems and a bow. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
