Always be your beautiful selfie

I am slowly recovering but it sure is slow. Colour in one day, another day to make the cards, and another day to post. In between lots of coughing, nose blowing  (yes I knew eeeeewww too much info), migraine or two and lots of nanny naps. 

So I got some new stamps that have been waiting (not too long mind you) to be inked up and coloured. This first is a couple of sweeties on the beach taking a selfie. Bought it simply cause so many of our girls will totally relate to it. I'm sure it will be popular. The stamp really doesn't need an introduction, obviously its a StampinBella. 

Coloured in with copics, a wee bit of Wink of Stella here or there. The panel I cut slightly smaller than the card front. I wanted to put a piece of patterned card stock behind but didn't want to waste covering the whole panel so I just cut a thin strip for each side and stuck on the card then added the coloured in panel. Of course I stamped my sentiment with Miss Misti - ahh placed just perfectly (for me!!) and no need to even re-ink. Finished off with a little mock silver shell.

Thought I would enter this in  Creative Inspirations : Challenge 321 Girls

Forgot to mention my tip in the link but it was to use less paper just cut thin strips to go each side and give the illusion of another sheet of paper under the top layer.
