Sassy!

At last, I have used my Sassy Suzi from TGF! I love this image sooo much that I was scared to use it as I didn't think I could do it justice! Crazy, yeah I know - it's a stamp for goodness sakes!!! Still, I treated it with kid gloves and came up with this...



When I make my cards I usually start off with the image I want to use and choose the paper I think best goes with the style of the stamp. This time round, I knew straight away that Suzi was wearing a pair of jeans and a suede coat with cream fake fur trim! Luckily I had some BasicGrey Granola to match!

I used the Anyone for Anya sketch below because I thought the simple style would showcase the image - a perfect match! Overall, I think it came out pretty well and can't wait to give it to someone!



Papers/cardstock: BasicGrey Granola, Bazzill cardstock
Stamps: TGF Sassy Suzi
Mediums: Copic Caios, Distress Ink Tea Dye
Accents: Stampin' Up ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities classic square die, Quickutz Katie alphabet dies
