Papertake Weekly


This week's challenge is to use something that is a favourite so of course I had to use this Miss Anya. She is such a pleasure to colour, I love dressing her to match my papers. It's funny really because when I first saw the set I thought "what on earth has she got on her feet?" and I didn't really like her. I had intended to use the layout from Sketch Saturday but I seem to have a bit of a block with diagonals, I can never really make them work. I've ended up with quite a simple layout but I think it works with the bold colours and pattern. The papers are from a selection called Take My Breath Away by Sweet Digi Scraps. Coloured with Whispers Brush Markers. tfl

If I were totally honest I would admit that stamps of people have never been my thing, HOWEVER, so far you have made them just outstanding! I mean, this one is just awesome! The colors from that paper carried over to the very trendy outfit- WOW! Your coloring is always wonderful and really makes a big difference in making this WORK! Love those big brads too. Cool!
