'Dance Recital'

It's time for a new release over at The Stamping Chef, where this week Tamara's pencils have been working overtime & have produced TWO new images for release!!

After much deliberation, I decided to use 'Dance Recital' as I know a few girls taking dance exams in the near future. Just thought this image would be perfect. I will be using it again in the future I think..

I just loved colouring in her dress, the skirt took me ages to do! But it was so relaxing I was nearly asleep lol!!
