Sneek Peek - One Classy Lady

Morning Peeps,

Hope you've all had a fab weekend, I've spent mine most catching up on DT cards, so lucky me I've had a crafty weekend, with the exception of having to do the boring housework, in fact I haven't stepped oustide the door since I came home from work on Friday, lol.  Think I'm becoming a recluse!

Anyway, look what I have for you today.  A sneek peek at one of the stamps from Release 7. Yayyyyyyyy I hear you say.  And isn't she a sassy girl?  This stamp is called 5th Avenue and will be available from Funky Kits on Saturday, yep, that soon.  All the DT Girls have received their Release 7 Stamps in record time so we will be showing the whole release in a hop on Saturday, so be sure to check the Sassy blog for details.

I've followed the sketch over at the Sugar Bowl and added my own touch as I do.

So what do you think?

Super colours & I love the soft colouring. The sahdow under her feet is so realistic & I really like the way the kraft cardstock sets off the aqua & liac & the distressed edging adds such an authentic vintage feel to this - as does the lace & the chipboard motifs. The eyelet edge gives a lovely feminine feel to this - reminiscent of Broderie Anglaise & really picks up the serrated edges of the sentiment. Love it.
