Every great dream begins with a dreamer.....

Love the sentiment that goes with this image. This stamp was a prize from Unity Stamp  Company from when the 'Hop to Stop Domestic Violence' challenge at The Damsel of Distressed Cards was on in October. Keep your eyes open for the challenge this year, wonderful way to raise awareness, make cards and maybe win a prize. We all had to do cards using Purple, it was great. My prize was $200 worth of stamps picked out by Unity Stamps. I got some of the most amazing stamps that of course have joined my NBUS that is the size of a small trailer piled to a great peak

nah only joking but just imagine!!!

As you can see by the close up I have kept the colouring to a minimal as its a one layer card and I didnt want to copics coming through. Was quite impressed when I finished with the small amount of bleed through on this particular cardstock.
So I coloured with copics and went with a blonde/brown hair colour.
Finished her off by going over the stamped hearts and dots with my red glitter gel pen and rather like the effect.

Nice and simple and wonderful sentiment, all finished off with one sparkly red crystal gem.

Start to finish less than 15 minutes and once thought out could make them in bulk very quickly.
Cant wait to try more of the Unity stamps - big thank you for your wonderful prize.

Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
