Anastasia

 
Gosh, it's July already and time for another A Die for a Sketch challenge and Dunja's given another great sketch to work with.  I've used Make it Crafty's Anastasia which is available in either digi format or a rubber stamp. The image has been coloured with Copics and all papers and flowers are Graphic 45.  I've had this image for ages and have finally got some colouring done - the hair seemed so intimidating but once I started it, it didn't seem so bad.

One of the best purchases I've made in a long time was the Quickutz circle dies... I bought them from one of my favourite online shops called Creating Everlasting Memories.  It's a fabulous little set with so many sizes of circles (21 pieces) and they cut like a dream and I've used those to cut all the circles.
Make sure to check out what the rest of the design team has created for inspiration and here's the sketch:
 
 To participate in the challenge, you need to follow the sketch and use at least one die cut so have some fun and join us.
Challenges:
Jackson's Digital Expressions - A Rose by Any Other Name
LEJ Designs - Use Flowers
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafty Bloggers - Anything Goes
