The Many Faces of Women at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog

Hi there, well another week has flown past and its Thursday already. I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself this week as I've had a cold and earache, but I'm soldiering on fuelled by lemsip and vitamin C and the weekend will soon be here yipeeeeee. This week at Rainbow Lady's Challenge our theme is 'The Many Faces of Women'. I've used a gorgeous stamp by La Blanche for my DT card. 

I've simply inked the stamp with Memento Tuxedo black in and stamped the image on some white silk card,matted on some black card and AB gems in teh corners. The background was made using a gorgeous leaf stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Essence of Nature stampsheet. Again stamped on white card and then gently inked with black ink and matted on black card. I've just addded a little ribbon to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers: No floral embellies
Crafty Emma's: anything goes
Stampalot Challenge: Monochrome
Stamp and Create: anything goes

Thanks for popping by
