Sweetheart.....

isn't that little image adorable....
This is the second DT piece I've made using this lovely
Queens Dresser Draws Stamp ' little ledger girl'
and she is a joy to use :)

I think in this last photo you can see the new technique I tried

I dipped a paintbrush in dark brown ink, and then masked th image, using a fine wire kitchen sieve, I held the sieve above the project and rubbed the inky brush on the sieve giving this fine splattered Background... I like it I think I'll be doing this a bit ;)

other bits I used from TSQ are those ever sooooo cute dragonfly brads, Tim Holtz PP, Collections words, and I added the little paper photo corners, which were 'kraft' colour but I just inked them with the versafine inkpad I used for the stamping of this piece.
