DCM - I am Woman

I haven't done many DCM challenges lately because I've been busy with other things but I made a point of making time for this one.......As its coming up to Mothers day in the UK here’s a chance to make a card that celebrates women and girls . So I’d like to see a card with at least one feminine image on it . And that's it for rules really.Apart from this one.And it is sneaky. No Tildas, Sugar Nellies or Bellas please. I love them all. But there are loads of great challenges out there using them so for this challenge you can give them a well earned rest!

I was totally inspired by Lythan's example card, she did some fabulous doodled scalloping and I just had to have a go so thank you Lythan for the inspiration.
I didn't have any suitable stamps so I drew an image myself, I tried to capture the care free nature you see in children. We could learn an awful lot from them. This of course is a woman not a child but shouldn't we all splash in puddles? I love doing the doodled scalloping-it's sooo easy.You can't have a splash or a puddle without Glossy Accents.
If you would like to use this image please do, I'd love to see it get used (pleases mention where it came from though)

I love this card, and your sketch is now on my hard drive eager to be printed and played with I love it.

I was wondering, If you would alow me to copy it onto one of my canvas's (for personal uses).

Oh and i too think you should do many more of these sketches, and sell them. I for one would defo buy them. they are lovely. I can sketch myself, but why when others do them so very well.... xx

This is a fantastic drawing. You need to hook up with someone and get that sweet thing in production. I don't know how you do it, but possibly google would be of help to you or the ladies that started up their companies that are on scs.... anyways, I would buy this stamp in a heartbeat! Thanks for sharing.
