Firstly, I must thank all of you, that left me the lovely messages on my last posting. It lifted me, from a depressing weather week, we have just had here in the south. It would be even better, if you could become a follower, just to boost my humble number a bit higher!Lol! I think I must find out how to post some Candy to give away! Sees a bit teccy for me but will look into it.
Today's stamp is from a set of lady stamps from Kan Ban. They are called The Cavendish Ladies-Putting On The Ritz. There are 3 large ladies, sentiments, small flowers, a corner and family titles in the set.
She was stamped onto water colour board and I used Distress markers and inks to colour her. The backing paper has come out rather pinker than it actually is.
It was so dark and miserable when I took the picture, I had to put the light on. It is from Tim Holtz, Idea-ology Paper Pad, of DI matching papers. It is Victorian Velvet colour. You can see the real colour on the next piccie. I also seem to have a piccie missing, one of the complete card! Dooh!!
I backed it with a die cut piece of dark silver card, from my stash. I also splattered a bit of Antique Ivory Frantage around the image.
Now you can see the real colour of the backing paper below!
I found this embelly in my bits box. You know what I mean, we all have one!! It was from when I used to play with Friendly Plastic. That is what it is, just heated and stamped into when hot. I think the stamp was an old Judikins cube stamp set.
I think I should of cropped this next image a bit more! I love this colour Combo. Victorian Velvet, Black Soot and Weathered Wood.
If anyone can give me a few tips on posting Candy, please email me. All will be greatly received!!
Hope you like my C&S offering. It's not often I truly like my makes. We are usually very self critical but I actually like this card. I think it is the colour combo for me.
Well, tomorrow the weather is supposed to be much better. The sun is popping out a bit today but the wind is really blowing a gale out there. I think I must have a full crafty day today! Tough, I know!
Have a great weekend and stay safe.
