The Paper Players Challenge #99 - Happy Birthday DD!

Well, today is our DD's birthday & seeing as she is fond of Miss Anya images, I have made her a centre step card, featuring one of the stamps from the "Hats" set:-

DD loves both pink & green, so I've used Lesley's bright & fresh colours from the Paper Players Challenge (click on the graphic to go to the challenge):-

It's been quite some time since I have broken out the aquapainter, so I have had a lovely time watercolouring this little Miss with my inkpads.  Here's a close-up:-

I've crystal glazed her boots & added tiny liquid pearl buttons.  Her hair has a fantastic healthy sparkle, thanks to a clear Spica pen.  :D

You can join in the Challenge & check out the stunning DT inspiration pieces here.  Please make sure you visit The Paper Players next week too, as it's their 100th Challenge!

Thanks for dropping by.  :)

Helen this card is totally cute. Loving the pink, and I'm partial to greens also. Great combo.

Your water colouring is fabulous and I'm sure your daughter just loves her card.

Really lovin' your stair step card! This one is a bit different, as the central image is up front and not on a back "step". Would you share the dimensions/directions for the base card, pretty please?? (email: j_kupsh@yahoo.com)

Helen, this is gorgeous (just right for your sweet girl!). LOVE the colours and colouring. Great use of that ribbon, too - it confounds me, but you have used it perfectly on this card.
