Matilda Muffinbread

Not too long ago, I participated in a secret sis swap with my Lostie sistahs. I had Anna and this is one of the stamps that she wanted. No I didn't keep it, although I was very, very tempted to. Anna was sweet enough to stamp me out some images! Thanks dude!! I'm definitely going to have to get one of my very own because she is just too darn fun to play with! I followed this week's sketch challenge ; which is fabulous. I colored her in with Prismacolor pencils (thanks Ross. he got me a set for my bday) and OMS. The muffintop is cut out and raised with a dimensional. I then covered it in Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls. I also covered the swirls in her wings with Stardust Stickles because all fairies need a little sparkle! I highlighted her with a pastel Tombo marker. The scallop rectangle is cut out with a Nestie. I ran the Banana strip through the Cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles folder. The Celery strips are stamped with the Canvas background. I then used my Tombo Multi glue and stuck some dew drops on. The Matilda image and the sentiment are raised with dimensionals. I had to share this picture of Nala with y'all. Last night, we were watching a movie in bed and when it was over this is what we saw. She has no clue how good she's got it. She has her own feather pillow and she was tucked under the comforter with the fan blowing over her. Pathetic I tell ya! Check out her perfectly crossed legs. Such a little lady! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the emails about Ike. We are fine for now. Expecting a ton of rain though. For those of you who are on the coast, stay safe!!!!
