Dark Royalty

Can you believe it's already Thursday? I can just remember telling all of you last week that the weekend has finally arrived. Anyway, today I have finally had a chance to post this card I made using a stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps. This is my first time coloring one of their images, I actually have a few of their stamps and have been wanting to ink them up for a long time.
The name of this stamp is called Dark Royalty. I love how detailed the images are and although there are lots to color, it really is a beautiful stamp to color. I had created this card for my sweet friend Cami, she happened to be my OCS (one card swap) partner for the month of March.
In this photo you can see that I have added some stickles to the image and the outer frame and I also added some crystal lacquer to her tail for some shine. One of the things I wanted to do was some sewing on the card but never had my sewing machine out in time. Thank you for your visit today and I hope you are having a great day!!

OMGosh! Cami will luv this! I wish I was your OCS partner . . . I don't own any Sweet Pea Stamps and don't think I ever will - - - so intimidated by them. I don't think I would be able to color them and do them justice. Yours is simply amazing Jodi!
