Hello! I have another sneak peak to show you today! This lovely lady is Coriander. To me she seems a little shy and thoughtful, but is a loyal and fierce friend!

I wanted to have Coriander swinging as she was contemplating, so I used the Sugarplums Swing stamp (also available at All That Scraps). The rope tying the swing to the tree was a little short for Coriander, so I stamped the image, colored it, and cut it out, leaving behind the "rope". Then I spread the tree and the seat a little further apart before I glued them to my background paper and used a ruler to redraw the connecting "rope". You might have noticed the swing is not straight up and down, but I don't think it really matters. It kind of looks like it might actually be swinging that way! I also paper pieced her dress and paper pieced her wings with vellum (I am loving that look with the beautiful wings on Amy's Spice Fairies!)

The Details:
Stamps: Coriander (Sweet November), Amy R Spring Sentiments, Sugarplums Swing - all from All That Scraps
Paper: My Minds Eye, Vellum, Chocolate Chip (SU), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: YR00,YR04,YR07,YR09,E08,E09
Dress: YG95
Misc: Stardust Stickles

Be sure to check out Coriander's debut at Maire and Amy's blogs, if you haven't already!

I will have one last Sweet November Sneak Peek tomorrow (and all of these sweeties will be available on the 7th at All That Scraps!)
