Skippy and Bobbin

I am sharing the sweet Whimsy image, Skippy and Bobbin, designed by Elizabeth Bell today!  It's about -20 outside right now, with a wicked windchill, so it was lovely to pull out some bright & summery colours to chase away the nasty weather...
I tried something a little different with this image, I stamped it in London Fog Memento ink (a medium grey) instead of my usual black, and it made for a much softer image overall.  And since she's gazing away from us, I made the light source coming straight at her from the distance (clear as mud?)  Here's a close-up:

I've popped her up on pop dots, and added some pearls and a little twine. 
 Here's what you can find in the OCS store:
Sand, hair & puppy: E51, E53, E55, E57
Hat & sandals: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28
Skin tones: E000, E00, E02
Romper: R81, R83, YG61, YG63, YG67

Happy stamping!  Karen :o)
