Ismaki Challenge #8

The layout over on Ismaki this week is this:
This is my take on it (added the flower as it looked a bit bare without it)

Materials:

  • Images: 'Krilla' image sent to me . They are Rakle stamps and you can get them here Coloured with prismas. circle sentiment from an Autumn Leaves stamp set.
  • Paper: left over from my last card. Cardstock down the side and the blue one embossed with cuttlebug folders (tiny bubbles and distressed stripes)
  • Others: Brads, gems and flowers from stash

What do you think of the girl image? I reacted to these in the same way as I did to the Magnolias. When I first saw them, I wasn't quite sure if I liked them or not but the more I looked at them the more they grew on me. I've seen a few about and the more I see them the more I love them. I just love the fact she's got such a 'real fuller' figure LOL, lots of surface area to colour in!!! Then the other one in the range is tall and lanky :D Needless to say I have since ordered some of my own (before I went on my stash diet) as I wanted a broader spectrum of 'people' in my stamps - didn't just want all bellas, tildas and nellies!
