Savannah has a Star

I had a little birthday splurge on my favourite stamps for "colouring in" this weekend - I do soooo love an Uptown Girl from Stamping Bella.   It's a brand I don't sell myself though, so if you want them, then like me, head on over to my mate Elaine's fabulous store Quixotic Paperie and pick up a  lovely leggy lady (or 12 like I did!!!!)

I always like to try and play in my favourite weekly challenge - Less is More - and this week, they want us to feature a star on our one layer project - hope this one isn't too subtle ladies - she does have a star and it's even in the name of the stamp but it is a bit little!

I had such fun colouring Savannah in - and I love the idea of wearing a Christmas tree!  I stamped her on a kraft base card and used the stitched mat square dies from Lil' Inker Designs to create an embossed border and then traced the solid line in red to make it pop between the dashes.  I coloured her with Polychromos pencils - using just 3 shades of green to get some depth in the shadows and highlights on the tips.  I love using pencils on kraft - you can get such a grown up finish from a medium considered so childish!   I finished with one my favourite Christmas sentiment sets by Hero Arts.


  1. Gorgeous! Yummy colouring, reminds me I need to break out the pencils. LOL!
