I got this stamp because my dd's friend loves turtles and because it is just too cute. I had stamped and colored this image for another project but it didn't work out. I was in my studio tonight being very tired and decided to use it. Miss Turtle is colored with pencils and blended with gamsol. I used souffle pens to add just a bit of dimension on the purple dots, flower centers and edge of the shell. Then I added some yellow souffle pen to the flowers. I couldn't believe I actually used my sewing machine for this card. I love to sew but haven't sewn if just forever. I used to make almost all my clothes and my children's clothes now I haven't used my machine except to mend other people's clothes. Just how sad is that.
