Audrey Hepburn...Darling

I loved this stamp as soon as I saw it and was going to wait until my next Florida holiday to get her but in the end I couldn't wait and ordered her from Quixotic Paperie, she arrived on Saturday and was inked and coloured the very same day. I also ordered the "make it crafty" blending card and it seemed to work well, very smooth will try it a bit more and let you know if I am converted.

I knew I wanted a skyline behind her, preferably New York as the image reminds me of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" but I don't have a die and my cutting is rubbish so I decided to search the tinternet and look what I found on Paper Yoga and free too, I used my craft robo and some grey snippet cardstock, I used the MME "Blush" papers that are nearly all gone and voila a finished card.

I have also coloured another of these so expect to see that card very soon.


Ingredients:
Image: "Audrey loves her Makeup" Uptown Girl from Stamping Bella
Papers: "Blush" MME
Cardstock: Grey from Snippet folder
Ribbon: Craftwork
Die: Paper Yoga - removed the New York at the bottom.

Challenges: Snippet Playground
