It's Anything Goes at Isabella's

Here's wishing you all a happy Wednesday... it's half way to the weekend, so cheer up and get those crafty tools out, we have a super challenge for you at Isabella's Sketchbook this week... Anything Goes!  You can design just what you like , as long as you use an Isabella image.

I've chosen to go with this lovely stamp called Wandering. I've been looking at her for a while now and I wonder what she's thinking.  Do you think she looks happy or sad?  You can purchase her here.

You will notice that this stamp looks a bit different to Isabella's, that's because I've used my wooden stamp reeds in water on either side of the rock our little girl is sitting on.

The cardstock is Bazzill in pale lilac.I used a deeper purple to mat my designer paper on to and used the same paper as a frame for my image. The image is coloured in with Copics. I've added some Rangers  Stardust to the water to make it sparkle. The sentiment is my own. The flower was made by Paola and the flat-backed pearls were purchased from her shop.

I hope you'll feel inspired to join us in the challenge this week. We had an amazing response to our first Blog Hop at Isabella's and we'd love to see the winners join us going forward. We'd love to see what creations you come up with using your new Isabella stamps.

Thanks for visiting and as always, thanks for the comments you leave me. I really appreciate them. Hugs Sharon x

So pretty Sharon.. Love the little reeds you added too and of course your coloring is great. I really don't know if she's happy or sad - maybe just "thoughtful".
