Polka Dot Posy..

How sweet is this image and she was free!!! Shes a Whimsy Stamp and I got her and another in a magazine the other month. I think they are so cute. 
I have been a brave person and have coloured on Kraft with my Spectrum Noirs. If I colour on it I usually use my watercolour paints or my pencils so this was a first for me. A handy tip for you is to have a spare piece of kraft card and scribble the colours you want to use first and see what they are like when dry. The colours are not as bright when they alcohol is still wet.  The paper bleeds much easier too so had to be gentle with my pens.
