Let's HIt the Town

Let's Hit the Town is one of my favourite stamps!  I love her old fashioned, yet very modern dress and those shoes look amazing!

I have coloured her with Polychromo pencils.  She is the third image I've coloured with my new pencils:  it's much better than my first attempt, but I still need a LOT more practice!  But its fun learning through trial and error.  Think I need to have a browse at some online tutorials too. 

Anyway, I've followed the gorgeously simple sketch at the SugarBowl AND followed the theme of NO DESIGNER PAPERS - just some embossed swiss dots.  I've made the decorative corner by cutting a square in half and punching it with a small punch I've had for ages.  And I decided that the greeting needed a few doodled dots to tie it in with the image and paper.  Her shoes have had gloss and a tiny amount of Glamour Dust added too. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sugar Bowl - sketch and no designer papers
Simon Says Stamp - New Something (pencils)
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - What's New (pencils)
Fab 'n' Funky - Something New (pencils)
