Oh dear, what a delight full shock!! Saffron landed in my inbox!!

She really is the loveliest young lady, and had to be worked with immediately! So off to my favourite Graphics program I trot, My Craft Studio, and have a look at this little treasure!
Hmmn.....what to do? She just looks as though she's on her way to something, so into the folders of artwork on my Pc...........and routing around looking for a background.........NSR Snowflakes and Sparkles to the rescue! I adjusted the colour to blue, instead of purple, then thought hmmn, wonder what this would look like on acetate?
So Saffon, plus background on a sheet of printable acetate, quickly grab my tub of MCS Meltdust, Blue pearl liberally applied! Then heat it all up, so it goes all pearly blue, then flip it over and Promarkers to the fore.....Ruby and red for the coat, ruby, red, and primrose for the hat, scarf and Muff, Prussian for the coat, Walnut, Henna and Primrose for the hair, Sunkissed Pink, Rose Pink, and Almond for the face with Red for the lips. and finally, Black, Primrose, and Red for the shoes. I used Cosmic Shimmer, Silver Pearl PVA for the buttons.

I coloured a couple of the explosions in red, for a bit of Wow, added 2 strips of dark blue, and one strip of white holographic ribbon, made a small bow, and added 2 sewing pins, in Prussian blue, and one white pearl hat pin, and mounted it on some angled Pillar of Light card, by the Glitter girls.
As the back of the acetate has been embossed with a pearlised powder, it is slightly "cracked" allowing the sparkle of the Pillar of light card to show, while muting the effect of the pillar of light, as it can be a bit too much in large pieces, and it does change quite considerably, as you look at the card.........

I love her!!
And if you like her, and want her for yourself, well for a limited time you can get her from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, available here ,

In the meantime, I am off to enter this in the Little Miss Muffet Challenge, as I can!!!
And Also I am entering this in the little darlings challenge
Have fun guys, xxx

Wow this is some creation Saffron looks amazing and the background just pops around her Lou.

I adore working with acetate and I too put Saffron onto a piece and then added glitter to the back.

Thank you for sharing with us at Little Miss Muffet Challenges.
