Another New Stamp..

Evening all, well I have had a busy few days 'thinking' about creating.  I had an amazing day at the farm yesterday with my husband and the girls but lacked a bit last night with wanting to get anything done, so i took the evening off and chilled a bit. 

But tonight I decided to have a session and once again after I have finished i'm doubting my creations.   For the 1st time I feel my colouring looks good but the general card... well its lacking.. again!  

This is a new digi I have from Tickled Pink called Lil Victorian Lestat, I think he is very handsome!

Last week I was introduced to the idea of using newspaper on my creations, I was a bit nervous about doing this as its all new.  Today I braved it, i cut the text from the paper and then used my sepia ink to 'distress' it! I created the little tag buy using a sponge and the sepia ink on some spare paper and wrote LOVE on it,  

Here is a close up of my handsome little lad,  watched the video over at Sugar Nellies on colouring hair, I have tried it a couple of times but am unsure if i actually do it right, but I think I will watch it again! 

I coloured him using my Ice grey pro-markers, black, apple and pastel green.  The card base I used is a kraft card from anitas.  

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges; 

Tickled Pink Stamps - Distress It
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything goes
Tellens Place - Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy - Something New
Pixie Dust Studio - Back in Time

Fabulous creation! That is genius to use newspaper - it looks great distressed like that! I am going to try it myself! Superb coloring of Lestat. He does look quite dapper! :)
