Crafts & Me Forever Rose - Love

In my last post - I mentioned how much I am loving these Crafts & Me stamps by Hannah Lynn. I have fallen pretty hard for these images! I just love the uniqueness of them and the coloring possibilities. I like an image that gives me lots of area to color but not necessarily a whole figure - I love that these faces are so expressionate - is that a word?! LOL Honestly, they are just beautiful and I love seeing them pop to life as I color them. This image is probably my favorite so far! It's called Forever Rose and isn't she dreamy?! As soon as I my eye fell upon my Graphic45 Steampunk paper pad I knew I was going to pair her with them. I colored her hair & the rose to match the roses in the paper. I love this Steampunk Line and when I saw these gears by 7gypsies while at Archiver's Sat night - I knew I had the perfect embellishment to complete this card. I think I am finding that I love grunge/antique/dirty styles - who would have ever thought that! LOL I hated it when my mom would drag me antiquing when I was a kid!!! I thought it was SOOOO boring and hated all that old stuff. But now I LOVE to browse the old shops downtown for inspiration and especially love the street markets we have in the summer time here. Now, I'm the mom dragging my kids around as they complain about being bored. LOL

So, as I mentioned in my last post - Crafts & Me is having a DT call - I am submitting my blog - this card specifically in the pool of talented entries! I have my fingers AND toes crossed. :D
