I am so excited to announce that this is my first post as a fully fledged member of the SWEETPEA design team.

I have many favourite SWEETPEA ARTISTS so it was difficult to chose which one to use for my first posting. As with most of my cards I chose the image that appeals to me most on that particular day and today it was this gorgeous stamp by Anna Marine called VIOLET. In Anna Marine's original artwork she has coloured her quite dark and vampie as is so popular at the moment. I have decided to colour her both ways.  In the first one I have coloured her much softer as I think she is quite beautiful and I have chosen a more sepia vintage washout colour palette.

and now the same stamp coloured with the darker tones.


Stamp Used:  VIOLET by Anna Marine.  This stamp can be purchased as a single stamp or you can purchase the plate which includes four of Anna Marine's gorgeous stamps.
