Here is a short bio about Wendy:
 Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors. I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork. Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers . All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators Anne Lise and Bettina along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls. We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

Nikky...Adore this cute 3 little Summer Girls  created by Wendy Burns, it's SOOO cute! THis was a really hard image for me to colour because stupidly I printed it really small so the bodies were tiny and I could barely get a nib in there LOL! So I had to keep my colouring quite simple but the colour palette is one of my all time favourites because I adore aqua colours, aqua aqua aqua love love love drool drool drool LOL!!
