Stampacular Sunday Challenge - Charmed

'Charmed' is Stampacular's challenge this week. I had intended to use a little 'girl' charm, but had a sheet of shrink plastic on my table waiting for me to pluck up the courage to use it. I've had some real disasters with shrink plastic - last time it got stuck to my nail and was there for ages before I had the sense to use a nail file to file it down. I've since had my gel nails removed - so no danger of that this time. I plucked up the courage and went for it - it is a little dark although I coloured it as lightly as possible - probably shouldn't have used Copics. Don't you just love this little Miss Attitude ? Anyone whose had a little girl will probably recognise this stance - come to think of it I still do it sometimes!!
I coloured her with Copics and mounted her on Nesties labels 4.


Materials
BC - white linen : DP - Basic Grey Two Scoops : Image - Elizabeth Woolcott Gorjuss girls : Medium - Copics : Sentiment - Inkadinkado : Shrink Plastic : Lace, ribbon, flowers, dew drops and beads from stash

hiya Heather , love this card that you have made, the little charm is fabulous. love this image,
ref the stempelglede stamps. i originally bought mine from Gunhild and they came really quickly .. but she doesn't sell them direct to the u.k any more.. maybe yours have been caught up in customs. can take an age if that happens..
hope that you get them soon. hugs rachxx
