Connie-Sexy Goth

I've been anxious to work with this gorgeous image by Sweet Pea Stamps 
artist Teresa Sherman
from plate #177 titled
"Sexy Goth"
ever since I first got her.
Today is just cold enough outside to justify being indoors here 
so I took full advantage of the weather!

SP image by Teresa Sherman plate 177
Nesties "Labels 14"
flourish die by Memory Box "Elegant Scrollwork"
flower die by Magnolia "Doohickeys"
small brads by Oriental Trading Co.
small hole punch-McGill
glue pen by Zig
corner rounder by Creative Memories
dp by DCWV "Mariposa"
Copic markers/airbrushing
white paint by Copic

**TIP:  when you need a thin border around a diecut and do not have
or want to buy another whole set just trace around the outside edge
of the die you are using and cut that out by hand, layering
beneath your diecut.  It makes a much cleaner edge than 
using a bigger die (which gives a border too wide IMO)**

Thanks for stopping by!
