My first Santoro stamp


This is the card I made for my friend Lynsey's Birthday yesterday. I had been admiring the Santoro stamps for a while and in the end succumbed to buying just this one. Lynsey is a big fan of pink and green. I added some pleats to the dress to give it more shape and I am really not happy with them but it isn't a technique I do often so more practice required I feel.
Image and papers - Santoro
Medium - Copics
Doily - Dovecraft Curiosity Corner
Die - pierced rectangle
Other - baker's twine and charm

Challenges
Paper Shelter Ribbon/twine 
Sister Act Anything goes
The Ribbon Girl Pastels

Lovely card Marianne.
I treated myself to 3 of the stamps in this collection a few months ago as the Range had them reduced. Shame to tell...they have yet to see ink.

Love the green and pink together Marianne. I have had this gorgeous paper pad for a long time now but so far all I've done is stroke it, lol, I can't bear to cut in to it.

Hi Marianne, Gorgeous card, it's a fab image and you've coloured it so beautifully. The papers are wonderful, lovely design too, hugs Kate x

Gorgeous colours and design and I love that little butterfly charm!
Your colouring looks fab; pleats are always tricky especially on an image like this with no lines to guide you so I reckon you did a great job :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
