Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well. I've had more time in my craft room recently and have another card to show this evening.
This design features a beautiful lady stamp from Impression Obsession that I bought while in the Netherlands in the Spring. I could not resist buying the stamp as there were gorgeous samples on display, created by Miranda. However it's taken me until now to actually use the stamp as I didn't get into my craft room much during the Spring and Summer.
The background is the new Blueprint and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks with water on a Acrylic sheet (yes I use this technique a lot). I partially stamped with IO's Cover a Card stamps and then spritzed a little water to let the inks run a little. Gone are the days when I worked hard to create perfect images with the large background stamps.
Miranda's ladies had colourful hair which I thought were great fun & wanted to do something similiar. I used Tombow markers direct to the stamp and a navy pigment pen for the eyes. After it was stamped I added a little water with a brush to the hair for the 'water colour' effect. I left the rest but darkened her eyes with the pen and added 'eye shadow' with a Tom bow marker.
The metal flowers have been hanging about in my stash for a while, I added dew drops to the centres.
Impression Obsession stamps: Elsie, CAC Rose Lace, CAC Fluff.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week.
