Good morning folks, I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front for a couple of days as I've been busy in the garden getting lots of jobs done, everything takes twice as long with the help of our puppy Barney who constantly runs off with tools, plant pots lol. After all that hard work I'm itching to get in my craft room and play. Before I go, my first card of the day features this months new stamps from Chocolate Baroque they are called Fabulous Flappers and you can find them here. I've had a wonderful time with them as they are such versatile stamps, great for lots of different techniques from colouring to paper piecing to dusting off the angelina fibres to create outfits for these lovely ladies.
I've coloured this glamorous lady with my Graph'It markers and added some faux pearls to her collar and her hair. I've lightly distressed the edges with Black Soot distress ink.
The background was made using Ladybug memento ink and one of the stamps from Fancy Flourishes, these are clear stamps which are perfect for pattern building. Again I've distressed the edges with a little black soot. I've added some black lace, red ribbon and a little resin flower. the sentiment is from Mackintosh sentiments.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and more: colouring
Fan-Tastic Tuesday: anything goes
Flat Friends: include a sentiment
Love to Create: Monochromatic plus ribbon
Milk Coffee: bright colours
Ruby's Rainbow: ladies
