She Art & a giveaway

In and among DT work I've finally managed to catch up with everyone else (several months later, but never mind!) and create my first She Art girl :D
She's on a 5" x 7" canvas board, which I painted with various Reeves acrylic paints and stencils. I used dictionary pages for her arms and head, and her dress is paper from an old DCWV stack. 
I finished with some blue trim, which I think is American Crafts, a stamped flower and a quote that was left over from my 'Feel' kit. 
I think her hair needs more work, and I prefer the bottom half of the background to the top, but all in all I'm pretty happy with my first attempt.

But enough about that I hear you cry, what about the giveaway?!
Well, I've been thinking for a while that I'd like to do a giveaway when I reach 100 followers, as a little thank you to those of you who check in regularly, and the lovely Cherie at Sassy Lil' Sketches has given me a copy of their new eBook as the prize! All you have to do is become a follower (if you're not already) and when I hit 100 I'll let do its stuff and choose one of those 100 people to receive the eBook :D Good luck!
