This is my second entry for the Tickled Pinks Stamps Challenge #3 using the sketch provided, this time with the Christmas theme of the Lil Lilita Boutique Challenge #8. The image reminds me of Audrey Hepburn or Barbra Streisand, & they in turn the movies "Breakfast at Tiffany's" or "Funny Girl".

ETA - Now how did I manage to get the inside of my card looking as if the paper is about to detach itself from the cardstock & the right hand side is longer than the left? I used a tripod.......oh dear!

Stamp Tickled Pink Stamps Lil Lolita Ivy.
Inks etc....Memento Tuxedo Black (image), Brilliance Mediterranean Blue for inking paper & cardstock edges.
Colouring Copic Ciaos, Inkssentials White Opaque Pen, Sakura Stardust Pen, ProMarker (pale blue gems).
Cardstock Bright gold cream, navy, white & yellow from "stash".
Papers Dovecraft Winter Wonderland.

Hi Paula, fabulous card, love the gorgeous image, fabulous colours and papers and your details are fab, especially the swirls and bling.
Sorry if I confused you, I use both distress inks and Copics, love them both, I just feel some images call of one some the other.
