I also bought this digital stamp, called 'Alice' by Sylvie's Designs from Stitchy Bear Stamps as I thought it was gorgeous and it is so 1950s. This was my second attempt at colouring her. The first was disastrous. I coloured it all in nicely and just needed to do her lippy! I got my fine brush Copic R46 pen out and began but my hand slipped, grrr..... aagghhh, and she got lipstick on her teeth. So I decided to try and whiten her teeth. I did the worst thing possible and panicked. Grabbed my White Souffle Sakura Gel Pen to restore her dentures and shock horror, I'd grabbed my Glitter Pen by mistake!!!! So then she looked like she had a silver tooth glistening, which might be quite cool but I couldn't live with it - poor girl looked manic! So I started again! Looking back it was quite funny!
