Guest Designer for the Crafty Sentiments August stamp release

     A while back I was contacted by Suzette from Crafty Sentiments and offered the opportunity to participate in the August new release of their stamps as one of their Guest Designers.  Of course I said yes and Suzette sent me two wonderful stamps sets and some of the Crafty Cutter dies to make my cards with.
     This card uses Isobel the Lilly Fairy and the Tab 2 die.  I think she has such a sweet face.  I've colored her with Copics and added some white gel pen dots to her dress.  I die cut the flower from burlap using Tim Holtx Tattered Florals die.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20
hair E31, E33, E25, E37
dress Y11, Y21, YR21, YR23
flowers C00, C0, C2, C4, G40, YG95, YG97

     You can check out yesterdays post at Crafty Sentiments Inspirations Blog for the featured Monday Stamp, "Off to the Ball" as well as today's post, and I'll be back with the other designers tomorrow for the final reveal.  All the stamps will be available in the shop for purchase on August 22nd.
     A huge thanks to Suzette!  These stamps are wonderful to work with and I am so honored to be asked to guest for the release.
     Have a great Tuesday!

What a lovely mix of patterned papers. I love all of the fabulous shapes of the layers...great variety and the matting makes the most of them. This image is so darn cute that it just made my wish list. She looks amazing in her dotty dress. Gorgeous burlap flower so cool next to the texture from the doily. Wow!
