Eat more cake!

Here's another of my new Uptown girls from Stamping Bella - 
isn't she adorable?
I admit - I was nervous of colouring her and almost opted to  paper-piece her dress, but I'm pretty pleased with how she turned out.


Ava, is coloured with Copics and some stickles glitter, cut out and popped up on foam pads.   
IRL she has some lovely, sparkly detail.
I also added a few random gems for extra bling :-)
I have learnt now to buy clear gems, so that I can colour them with Copics, to match my design.
