Edna Blows a Kiss...


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

I can't believe how fast these fortnights are going - here we are again so quickly with another challenge at In The Pink!  Today's theme is


so it's another nice easy one.... yes?

I decided to use one of the lovely Stamping Bella rubber stamps that have been waiting for my attention.....  meet Edna!  She's special to me, as that was my Mum's name - and I still miss my Mum even though she passed away in 1989.  So, I wanted Edna to look like she was perching on a ledge, blowing her kisses off to the clouds...  I think I managed it...

I fussy cut around Edna - and around the clouds that come in the set also - I do like my fussy cutting - it's a bit of an addiction!  Her hair was a something of a challenge... but I'm happy how it turned out!

Materials used:
Paper - Digi from Etsy
Colouring - Copics
Hair E21/25/29
Skin E000/00/11/70, R20
Dress and Headband RV000/91, R81/83/85
Wings RV000/91 and Blender Pen

So.. I hope you'll pop over and join in the fun at In The Pink - if your name is randomly drawn from our Perfect Pinkies...  you could win a £10 Live and Love Crafts gift voucher!
