Little Ballerina

Oh no, I hear you cry - not another Lily of the Valley stamp!  Sorry peeps - must try harder and use some of my other stamps, but these are my faves at the moment and I get drawn to them every time :-)

This image is called "Little Ballerina" and isn't she soooooooo cute?  She's been coloured with Promarkers and a little bit of glitter glue has been added to the hearts on her headband.  The image has been distressed around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - victorian velvet.

The backing papers are from Doodlebug Designs baby girl kit and is called "cupcake sweet stripes" and Forever Friends "For You" collection.  They have both been distressed with victorian velvet and then faux stitching added around the edges.

The lace has been coloured using distress ink - shabby shutters - and the hearts have been coloured with Promarkers.

The flowers and the pin are both from Wild Orchid Crafts and the charm and pearls are from my stash.
