Inner Beauty

Hay there blogland, I know i have listed this place as a haven for the sweet and true but i just had to share with you my very first card featuring one of my very own Minxy Art Stamps.
I was lucky enough to receive an Imagebox for christmas, so i can now happily design & make my very own stamps. I hadn't really had time to actually do that until now, but a cracking competition run by Nikki over at Dew Drop Craftz gave me the kick up the bum i needed to knock a set or 2 out.
All you have to do to enter is to make a card using your own stamps and show a pic of both {more details on her blog}
so here is my Pandora card...

and here is my Pandora stamp set

Now as you may see there are a couple of subtle changes with Pandora's face, after making the stamps i decided that she needed some work on her eyes and a fringe {which for times sake i just drew on} I coloured her using copics

I used a sheet of "rockstar" paper by DCWV, stamped sid the spider, then stamped the smaller skull onto a circle of textured black card, which i scuffed & coloured the edges of. I lay several ribbon and lace strips and used the larger skull to create an embellishment, i finished the skull with a tiny amount of distress stickles on the eyes.

I would very much love your opinions of these stamps, i know they're not the cutest in the world !! but i like em, and hope you do too {they may be launched for sale soon in limited numbers!}

Thanks for visiting, come back soon.
