One for a tweenie

No grunge, Distressed or Vintage today, pink and girly it is... for a young girl, not quite a teenager but too old for dolls and teddy bears!

I fancied doing a bit of colouring and I have very few stamps for this, I chose this image from Flonzcrafts and watercolour pencils which means my make is totally following our theme at Vintage Stamping Challenge.

The base card, one of my favourite shape, is a lovely smooth silk card that take the ink very well, so well I needn't have pressed so much on my stamp!

With such a contrast between the deep black of the stamped image and the white of the card I was tempted to leave it CAS without adding anything. But this isn't for me, so I needed a few more things to make it look "finished".
On came the die-cuts and I know it doesn't look like many but I used 6 different dies!

At the centre of flowers I added a tiny bit of Flowersoft, it's great to use some of the neglected stash!

Thanks for coming by,
