Stampin Chic Sketch Challenge 3

Another week, another challenge!
It's been a funny old week thanks to the Bank Holiday weekend. I have lost track of the days lol!
My fridge has gradually emptied itself of Chocolate throughout the week, mainly thanks to Adam being off work and munching his way through about 6 eggs!

I treated myself to 3 new images which I bought and downloaded from (gorgeous images and really reasonably priced). I also got myself a bigger guilotine and one of those 'staz on' ink pads this week as my current black ink pad is getting a tad worn out...I wonder why?! :o) I don't know if it's just because it's new but I am finding I have to be really careful not to ink up my stamps too much otherwise I get a really messy, overly inked image. Maybe I am just being too heavy handed??

Anyway, here is my entry for this weeks stampin chic challenge. I really liked working with the given sketch. I used one of my new downloaded images (whimsical girl) which I printed twice -one onto decent cardstock and then onto a piece of brown spotty paper from the CCSR Big One pack so I could paper piece the hat and the boots. I coloured the dress with my versamagic chalk inkpad to give a subtle effect. I finished the flowers off with some old paper planet glitter glue I had just to add a bit of sparkle!

Hope you like!
