Meet Vanilla from Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hello!  Well, I think I spoke too soon about summer being here!  It was a miserable day today in Auckland.  We were going to take our godchildren to the zoo, but it was a grey rainy day here today, so we had to take them shopping instead!    We did end up going to 'Glow in the dark' mini golf though as well which was fun!

Anyway, today I have my second card for the New Releases from Little Miss Muffet stamps to show you.  Meet Vanilla.  As an aside, I have been finding it soooo hard to find decent vanilla essence in Greece!  They have powdered vanilla for the main part and occasionally a liquid vanilla essence that is very fake tasting to me.  I'm going to stock up while I am in NZ!

So here is my card:

Isn't she cute?!  I coloured her with copics (see details below) and I tried to mix in some yellow as highlights on the pink bunny for fun this time.  It kind of worked, but I need more practice I think at mixing in completely different colours like that. 

The papers are a mix... October Afternoon (the stripes), Echo park, (the blue) and My Mind's Eye (the pink).  The yellow paper is from Pink Paisley.,  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the button is from Jane.   The sentiment is from Pollycraft.

Here is a close-up of Vanilla:

And here are the copics I used:

Go to the South African shop in Browns Bay and pick up some Moirs Vanilla Essence and some Bakers baking powder. Both are best ever products to use. You can get them here too if you can't pick them up there for some reason.

She is just perfect, wish I had chosen to do the bunny your way. Love the cream bits.

This is waaaaaay late, I am so sorry, not trying to be a total schmuck - honest.
