I loved colouring Holly by REBECCA SINZ for our blog hop so much I chose to colour her again.  This time I wanted to use more colour creating a different feel and attitude to the stamp.

I am forever trying different skin colour combinations and techniques.  I'm afraid I wasn't really confident of where to stop and so thought I may have over coloured the face!  I used the blender pen on the skin to help tone-in and I thought the hair was too flat so lifted some ink off with the blender pen which is now my most used pen!

I thought I would make another book as this is my favourite thing to make at the moment and to be honest I am always writing things down so I guess note books are added to my list of GIRL MUST HAVE THINGS!

I've struggled this week with my back and so I wasn't able to start my project until this morning.  As I am running in the wind - as to speak - I have not been able to bind the book to show you.  However, if time allows tomorrow I will finish and add another photo.

Nearly forgot Rebecca Sinz's Holly is available here as a single stamp or part of a plate of four stamps.  Eight new stamps have also been released by Rebecca here.

More details are available on my blog here.

Best wishes,
