Girly or Grungy

There's a new blog on the block. The Simply Sassy DT are crafting projects, tutorials and inspiration using the stamps created by Sugar Nellie from Krista Smith's wonderful designs.

One of the things I like about these designs as they can go 'Girly' or 'Grungy'.

I've gone 'Girly' with the 'My Friend Kitty' stamp.
She's been coloured with watercolour pencils and don't ask me where the peach and dark pink colour scheme came from, it just sort of happened.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the card and embossing folder are from DoCrafts.

Now for 'Grungy' using the 'I give you my heart' stamp.
All the papers and acetate swirl are by My Minds Eye and the little ticket is from Pink Paislee.
I've coloured her with Copics and made the background using Distress inks. There's a little bit of matching Distress Stickles for the water and some Tissue tape - so definitely the influence of Sir Tim here.

So 'Girly or 'Grungy'? I know which is my favourite in this instance, the blue one!

A few challenges:
Sassy Pink
