While going through blog land I came across a blog Dare U 2 Digi Stamp. I am a big fan of all methods of stamping and I love the fact that digi stamps can be resized to however big or small you want your image without losing the pixels and also you dont have to wait for the mail man to bring your stamp - you get it right away!

This weeks challenge is a sketch. I have used pretty head Rachel from the Greeting Farm. The black and white paper I had free with papercraft essentials magazine, black ribbon from my stash, red and silver cardstock, white gel pen for some faux stitching, and the flower in her hair made with my woodware daisy punches. I have watercoloured the image with pencils and given her some sparkling eye lids with Kirsten Lapping Designs glitter. The sentiment is a fabric topper which I picked up in a pound shop.

thanks for the comments girls! I do love this image and it lends its self to so many colour schemes. Yes Michelle - I did cut out the circles with my scissors - I basically markered two pointers where I wanted the circle to start and finish at and then cut it in a circular shape - not bad for free hand.
