Pretty Paprika

Hello, hello my stamping peeps!

It's another review preview day over on the ATS blog and this time it's all about the Sweet November duo that was released at the beginning of the month. And I couldn't wait to give Paprika a dramatically different look from the last time I colored her up. :)

Last time she was all blond and bright but for this card I wanted Paprika to look a bit more mysterious. So she has transformed into a dusky hued fairy sitting on the edge of evening, as the last few rays of the day fade to night. I paired her up with some more of the Plumeria papers because the purples worked for the look I was after and yet it was still kind of spring-like. I think it turned out very girly and pretty, just like I was hoping that it would.

Ok, so there is even more review preview fun and inspiration from the rest of the ATS and Sweet November gals to check out at ATS so be sure to hop on over there too! And all of the new March stamps can be found in the ATS store here!

I tried coloring Paprika with black hair but it was a total fail. Naturally you are the master at it!! She's gorgeous and mysterious here.

Pretty! I love her with dark hair. The color on her dress is pretty blends right in with the butterflies. I'm so excited, I just got that paper pad in the mail today. Can't wait to cut in to it. Her wings!! So pretty!!
Fabulous card!

OMGoodness, Amy I am so sorry that I forgot to send you my card. I truly truly am. I have no excuse at all except for lack of brains. Your card is just stunning and I love the papers and flowers with Paprika. Her dress and the way you have colored it is just beautiful. I love to see the depth you are able to get out of your coloring. It is always inspiring to me. I even used your brown hair combo with the warm grey for my card today as I think it really adds to the color overall. Hugs, Lisa

Oh, man! This card is gorgeous! The coloring is even more amazing than usual (if that's possible). There's so much dimension on her dress and hair! The choice of DP is wonderful and I adore how unique they are!
