always the flower girl...





Here's an image by Tiddly Inks from their Gothic Cute line of digital stamps. This digi is called "Always the Flower Girl" and she was a lot of fun to color.

I made the dotted background using the Raindrop Background stamp and Crushed Olive, my new favorite color of distress ink.






Since it's a Goth image, I tried to keep it "dark" and added some gray clouds for interest.

I may enter this in the Burtonesque Challenge which I found out about from my blogging friend Amy. Could she be a character in a Tim Burton movie? I hope so!


Stamps: Tiddly Inks digital image, Hero Arts Raindrop Background
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Versamark, Crushed Olive Distress ink
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities Labels Eight,
