Penny Black t-time

Here are some adorable little girls from a stamp set that is new to me; Penny Black's t- time stamp. It is great to have some images stamped and heat embossed on water color paper ready ready paint for whenever you have a spare moment. I had busy day and needed some de-stressing time in the evening. Coloring of any kind is good for helping you relax and clear your mind. 
 This first little girl I decided I wanted to paint her dress so it was like a watermelon. I tried mixing my own colors for the browns and the skin tones. The background begged for a cheerful color, so I went with a wash of yellow.

The second little girl's hair was a little more of a challenge. I decided to go back over her hair with a second layer after the first had dried, then I was finally satisfied with her hair.  The colors for this card have more pale and a shabby chic feel to them. I also to set a scene with the background with this card too. You can just see a little girl in her dressiest dress have a tea party in the back yard cupcakes and all.

Both cards have a wink of Stella on them. The first little girl's sheer apron has the wink of Stella on it. And the second little girl's girl dress is all shimmery with a wink of Stella and also the pink cupcake icing. It is so hard to get the shimmer to show in the photos. So, go color something and relax.
