Waste Not Wednesdays wk3

Sorry I'm a bit late today, I got here eventually!  I'm back with my little challenge to use my unused stamps and digis... thanks to everyone who played along with me last week, I loved seeing all your poor neglected images.  I think we need a little prize this week don't we?  I'll sort something out and add details to this post later :o)




I have used my new and rather fabulous prisma pencils again, to colour another Sugar Nellie stamp that I've had for AGES... yesterday's first pencil attempt was a bear so this is my first go at colouring a person with them.  The photos are a bit washed out because I had to use the daylight lamp, I might replace the photo tomorrow if I remember.

This is of course a lovely Gorjuss Girl, I think she's called Foxy.  The papers are Prima 'alla prima' with Stampin Up kraft card and some scraps of core'dinations.  Flowers cut with a MFT die, little roses from Wild Orchid, swirl cut with a sizzix die and pearls from my stash.

I've (more or less) followed the sketch at The Sugar Bowl so I'm entering my card there.

So if you'd like to join in with me, just use any uninked stamp or digi from your stash, link it up below and I'll come and visit you :o)  As I said, I'll sort out a little random prize this week so I'll be back to add details of that later.

Hi Lisa, what wonderful colouring! And a fab colour scheme, gorgeous papers.

Are you deserting the Pros for Prismas then? I almost did, but am practising so hard with the Promarkers and Flexmarkers just now that I am neglecting the Prismas - poor things!

I made a card today in preparation for your WnW - will post later tonight and link up then.
