Well, I didn't get my June Stamp Club stamp from TGF until yesterday but I inked her up as soon as I brought the mail in. This month is a darling version of Cinderella called Slippers. For my first go round of coloring I like to stick with the traditional colors so of course I stuck with the blond hair and blue dress theme. But I've also already altered another version of Slippers with her eyes wide open and I'm looking forward to doing a complete 180 with her on my next card.
But I digress... getting back to today's card, I paired Slippers with a pretty piece of paper from the October Afternoon Girl Talk collection. That floral had a kind of retro 50's vibe to me which suited her quite nicely. I went with the 'make a wish' sentiment because that song from the cartoon kept running through my head as I was coloring her. You know the song I mean... "A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you're fast asleep...". Unfortunately those are the only words I remember so that is what kept looping over and over and over, LOL! Anywho, once I had that all together the card still needed something. And then it hit me... Slippers needed a few of her mice friends to join her. So I grabbed my Pergamano Flower Girls clear stamp set because it has a couple mice that are the perfect size. Once they were part of the scene my card finally felt complete. :)
Ok, it is back to work for me today so I should go get ready for the day.
