A new addition to my growing collection!

And a huge HELLO! to all my new followers :-) Thankyou so much!

I was recently lucky enough to win this beautiful stamp, Angelica, from Wags 'n Whiskers! She's so beautiful to colour. I tried to stay away from my usual pink and came up with this:

I'm not sure however if I consider these colours to be neutral enough to enter the N is for neutrals challenge at ABC Challenges - what do you think? Opinions please!

I've coloured her with my promarkers (and a little glitter glue!) and the papers are from Wild Rose Studio. I used my favourite leafy lace border punch from xcut again to give a border to the oval which was cut using my nesties following the out-of-the-box tutorial from Jenny (you can see her out-of-the-boxed wing better in the second piccie, but you can see her shoes above).

 The flowers were punched using a woodware daisy punch and then layered up, adding pearls from my stash to the centres.

Sarah Hurley - Die cuts
Totally Gorjuss - Fab sketch
and maybe... (depending on what you all think!)
The ABC Challenge - N is for neurals

Back soon!
Love 'n' hugs,
