Frillie Millies - Holly

I was looking through the design papers on Pink Petticoat and came across this gorgeous digital stamp!! Isn't she gorgeous?!! She is called 'Holly' and is from Frillie Millies Collection.

This is the 'Less is More' Sketch that I have used for their Challenge.

I printed the Sentiment onto the card and added 3 pearls. Image is mounted on card and outlined with Sakura Clear Star Glitter Pen. I have to say it looks really simple but it gave me a few problems. first attempt I printed the image onto the card but then when I coloured it bled through. The sentiment wasn't in right place and I went totally over the top with the glitter pen and poor Holly looked a right mess. But pleased with how it came out in the end and think I might actually do more Less is More cards!!!

Image: Frillie Millies 'Holly'-  Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: 'Tiny Christmas Treasures' - Pink Petticoat
Colouring: Copics, Spectrum Noirs, Sakura Glitter Pens, Skars Glitter for snow
Pearls: Bunny Zoe's

I got my tooth sorted thank goodness :-))  The dentist managed to fit me in and restore it. Can't believe how hot it is here in Manchester!!! Actually looking at my thermometer it is hotter than our supposed Summer!!!! Glad I didn't put my fan away!! 

Nearly time for my Candy Draw! and Wow! just seen I have 98 Followers - Thank you! You all Rock!! it would be nice to get to 100 !!!! :-))  A big welcome to all my new followers and if I haven't visited you yet, I am really sorry and will get back to you real soon. I seem to have been pushed for time this week with one thing or another and the end of September seems to have come round so quickly!!! where did September go !!!! Anyway, I will draw with one of the Random Selectors about midnight on 30th September. It seems the only fair way.
