Clarity recently brought out three new lady stamps drawn by Barbara Gray. They have quite a bit of open space on their dresses so they're really versatile; you can colour them, paper piece them, Zentangle them, or fill them in with the matching pattern stamp.

For this first one, Annabel, I chose paper piecing (cutting out different areas of the stamped image in different patterned papers). The paper I used is Picnic in the Park by Serif. It was a 6x6" pad that was free with a magazine. I chose them as the pattern is quite small and I really like the strawberry paper.

I covered the front with some of the green paper and then stamped the Curly Curve along the edge so that I could cut away the excess to reveal the paper than I had stuck inside. I coloured in parts of it to match the papers.

The papers also influenced my decision to give her funky red hair.

I finished it off with a flower and a verse.
