Whimsy Stamps inspiration post -Maya from Marika Collins

Good morning my lovely friends

And a special welcome to my new followers - its lovely to have you visit me and I hope you'll find something here to inspire you.

I have a card today that I made with one of the lovely girly stamps
 fom Marika Collins over at whimsy stamps 

Her name is Maya and you can find her here

I decided to go for a bit of a grungy look - she looks like she might be a grungy cool kind of girl lol.

this was the card that i was originally going to post for My time to craft last with with all my fab new craft goodies from christmas - only to discover that that wasn't the challenge at all!

I got some fab new copic colours one set being E70, E71 and E74 that I really liked the look of for things like a darker neutral jeans colour and also for animal furs - perhaps teddies, I like these type of colours. Anyway off I went colouring away when the darkest of the colours just splodged a huge dollop of ink out - I couldn't believe it!! I think I managed to rescue it quite well - it was on the knee area but don't you just hate when that happens - my "sharp intake of breath" ( I did manage to restrain myself quite well!!) could probably be heard for several miles around lol

Anyway here's what I did ...
(and details of my new goodies)

Coloured with- copics and prismacolor pencils
Papers - MME - Lost and found blush
Circle dies - spellbinders
Pearls (coloured with copics to tone) 0 from my stash
Ribbon - carnmeal cottage
.....and my new goodies
Corner set - Whimsy stamps
Butterfly - elegant butterfly set from Whimsy stamps
Tags (including birdie and "so tweet" sentiment ) - notched tag set from Dienamics
Sentiment - from the grunge birthday set at lili of the valley

wasn't I a lucky girl - Santa was very good to me!

Hope you like her
