Angry Ballerina


Maybe someone else got the lead in the ballet, otherwise I can't imagine why she's so upset. By the way, my "n" key is still sticking so I'm probably going to make this a short post, cause that sticky "n" is what's making me angry, but I digress...
I betcha her foot is tapping fast and hard. Personally, I can't believe she's unhappy about her costume, unless she's a Vegan, member of PETA, doesn't like pink (who doesn't like pink) could be dietary but I don't think the costume's the reason, it's too dang cute.
Well whatever the reason this is "Angry Ballerina" by Kraftin' Kimmie. I've been itchin' to get her inky. Not sure this was the card I had in mind but it'll do for now. It's a little bit busy, it's following the sketch on "Oh, Alice". I like all of the embellishments on the card but I think that maybe there's too many of them for one card.
I spent a lot of time dirtying this card with Ranger inks but it doesn't show that well.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Kraftin' Kimmie "Angry Ballerina"
ink - Brilliance Graphite; Ranger Antique Linen; Ranger Tea Dye; Ranger Tattered Rose
paper - dp Basic Grey Two Scoops
Miscellaneous - Hero Arts Sparkle Gems; Hero Arts Pearls; Recollections Pearls Stickers; Prima Flowers; brad; glitter dust; glaze pen; copics; ribbon; button; linen twine; charm; sulky thread
