Crafting When I Can Challenges 60 - Outside

Happy New Year to All

For the first Challenge of 2014 we have a theme of 


and our wonderful Sponsor is Heather Valentin from

We were able to choose our own stamps for this challenge and I chose 
Maggie Springtime Flowers from the retiring section.  I used my new Spectrum Noir pens.  I had been collecting the sets over the months and then treated myself to the sets I needed to complete the full set for Christmas and my MIL gave me some money towards the pen racks too so I now have a lovely, colourful set of pens to look at and hopefully use ;-).

I used an 8 x 8 card because I printed my image larger than I wanted but instead of worrying about it I went with the flow and used a bigger card base.  The green card I used for the base is from a Papermania pack, the mats are from DCWV Stack 6, the ribbon I bought about a year ago and never used until now.  All edges have been distressed with DI, Old Paper.  I've been trying to get more shading because I have all the SN pens and I like the dress but still can't get the hair but I think this image is a wonderful one which to practice shading on.
