An evening stroll

As it's Monday it's time for my Prickly Pear DT share. I am not sharing a Nicecrane piece this week as the web site is down for maintenance but you will be able to check it out and see more new designs very shortly.

It's a first inking for Stella the rather elegant looking lady who has been paper pieced. The frame is the aperture left after cutting the Timmy wardrobe frame, I always keep the waste as it works perfectly for creating a little scene in this case using Pan Pastels, ripped paper to make the hills and clouds and some Prickly Pear flower and leaf stamps, all listed above with direct links.

Hope you all have a lovely week.
