Hanglar & Stanglar - Love

Hi folks!
It's been ages since this little beauty has been inked. Isn't she adorable! I followed three challenges to make this swirly girly card. The Sketch is from Ismaki, A Spoon full of Sugar is calling for 'Doodle-do's' or swirl stamps and the first challenge over on The Pink Elephant is 'Pink, Black and White' I'm sure they won't mind some flesh tones and hair colour too.

The papers are from Basic Grey Two Scoops range. I have used my Nestabilities to cut the centre rectangle and scalloped rectangle. I have also embossed the white panel using my Cuttlebug. The swirl stamp was a freebie from a magazine. I have coloured the image with my Koi watercolours and highlighted the heart with glossy accents and sprinkled some glitter on. Hopefuly on the second picture you can see that I have decoupaged her arms and heart. I tried this out having been inspired by the talented Debby. You need to hop on over to her blog, her creations are amazing. I think maybe I should have decoupaged the little Hanglar girl's face and hair, but I'm pleased how it turned out. The letters are a Quickutz alphabet and I finished off the design with some black brads.
Thanks for looking.
Hugs
Sandra xx
