SWEETPEA - GUEST DESIGNER - SEPT PROJECT 1

Spread The Word!!!

This is my first post as a Guest Designer for Sweetpea stamps and I am so proud and pleased to be joining the team this month.



There are so many wonderful stamps to choose from that if was difficult to decide which stamp to use.  I eventually chose this one by Anna Marine called Keep My Secret Well.

I had a good play with different combinations of colours trying to achieve a realistic skin tone and am for once pleased with the effect. (Pity I never made a note of the colours used but I will say I used more than one brand of alcohol pen.)
