Lola with Bird

I've used  a really old stamp on today's card...it's 'Lola with Bird' by Rachelle Anne Miller for Sugar Nellie. I coloured it using watercolour pencils to match the 'My Girl' papers by American Crafts. I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Party Critters' set by Penny Black, the flowers are by Prima, the twine is by Dovecraft, the pearls are from Hobbycraft, and the buttons are from my stash.

I have just discovered pink and grey together and I love all the pretty layers of DP on your card. The image is cute and don't we all have stamps that we haven't used for ages?!
Hugs, Kat x

Love the color combo challenges--I think you nailed it! I also really like the layering.

Isn't it funny how we'll rediscover stamps in our collection and they'll seem like new?
