Road Trip Selfie

It's Thursday and my turn to share another super cute stamp from the High Hopes Spring 2016 Collection. Meet "Sally Takes A Selfie". 

Today we find Sally on a road trip to the Rocky Mountains. Of course she had to stop and take a selfie in front of them. 

Sally is cut out using the SVG files for both the stamp (07) and the background (14) and stamped using my Misti - love my Misti! I coloured her using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. 
My challenge to myself was to use a different hair colour then my "go to's" like blond or brown - I really like the red tones with this combination. The Rocky Mountains were stamped and coloured leaving just a peak of snow on top of a few of them. 
The sentiment is also from the new release and cut with the matching SVG file (07) and added to a polaroid die cut. Gold Wink of Stella was added to her heart necklace and the flash of her camera - a girl's gotta have a little bling! A white gel pen was used to add some fun polka dots to her bow and socks and an alcohol marker was used for her freckles.
