SC218 Looks like my oldest DD!!!

This is the image I was working on before the flooding started. I married a red head and live in a house full of red heads, so for me the easiest hair colour to recreate is , well, red/auburn-ish

I love this image from Think Big by Artful INKables. This is such a sweet tween aged girl. I love this age for children, all legs and arms and an insatiable appetite of fun and curiosity.

My oldest DD has a voracious appetite for books. She is working an a novel, possibly her second 400+ page novel now. Her favourite place in the world is the local public library and she can't believe that she can borrow any old book her heart desires for free. She has told me before, 'It's better than shopping!!' Yay me!!! It's cheaper than shopping too.

I used prismacolours for this image, and did a lot of masking. The huge pile of books are my DD's happy place. The stamp iwth the Think Big set is only 3 books high so I masked over the girl, and using my stamp-a-ma- jig, I created the tower of books behind starting at the top, masking my way down the pile.

This is not my best explanation ever, so if you have questions let me know!

stamps; Think Big (Artful INKables)
paper; ancestry (k&co), brown, yam (bazzill), be good - ribbons (cosmo cricket)
ink; black onyx (versafine by tsukineko)
accessories; latte skittles (the robin's nest), slot punch (SU!), aged copper brads (making memories), small and large label nestabilities (spellbinders), brown satin ribbon (offray), prismacolours
