Something For a Lady and Design Team News

Hello and Welcome! I have some exciting news to share today! I was invited to join the Stamping Sensations design team, and while I hadn't really thought of joining a new design team, I couldn't resist Brenda's invitation and am looking forward to being part of their wonderful team! 

This month our theme is "For a Lady" and you have until the end of the month to join in for a chance to win. The prize this month comes from Crafty Individuals who are giving away a gift certificate to their shop. 

I decided to make an easel card using Pinks and Grays along with the cute and very feminine stamp set Patisserie by Penny Black. 

All images have been stamped using Versafine Onyx ink and colored using my Zig Clean Color markers on Bristol Vellum paper. I left her hair uncolored on purpose to keep it pink and gray only.

I added some coordinating papers from my stash.

If you need info on how exactly an easel card is made, I personally love this tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers.
