Vintage Boutique

I just adore this stamp from the Simply Sassy range at Funky Kits - hope you like her as much as I do.

I coloured her with my PMs and cut out two scalloped circles with my nesties; using the same colours I coloured the image with I inked the edges of the larger shape and distressed the edges with my wee scissors.  The sketch is from The Sugar Bowl current challenge and the DPs are from The Papercraft Factory from Funkyhand 'Pleased to see Ya' range.  My flowers I made using cheap white flowers I bought from a local shop, coloured with PMs to match image, joned two together and stuck down onto card.  Quite pleased with results as they were only 20p - basic white flowers that I took apart as they were ugly and I got loads out of the 20p.

I also discovered in Photoshop how to lighten pictures - sometimes depending on the light outside I feel my pics are too dark and been struggling to find out how to lighten them but hey presto found the button today and they are much lighter now thankfully.
