Hello again my friends. Today I'm sharing a feminine card with you that utilizes a colour that doesn't feature very often in my crafting. Can you guess which one that may be?.....
Those that know me can clearly see that it is the pink......
I knew which image I wanted to use and I decided I wanted to use a tag as well. So I started with a size 8 manila tag and spritzed it with worn lipstick and hickory smoke distress spray. Once dry I distressed the edges with pumice stone, hickory smoke and black soot.
I then stamped the large Harriet in black archival ink. I die cut the TH beehive in the corner and mounted a piece of patterned paper behind it.
I stamped Harriet again onto white card and then onto 3 different patterned papers. Her face and arms are coloured in with a damp brush and tattered rose distress ink. I versamarked her shoe and clear embossed it. I cut her out and different bits of her dress and hat from the papers and paper pieced her. I love doing this with the ladies as it adds so much dimension and I can give them different patterned dresses every time.
I stuck her onto tag.
The rest of the card is padding to frame it. I used the same 3 patterned papers for everything and then the base uses the same paper as I added to base of tag, trying to make everything tie in.
The die is a spellbinders one from a heartfelt creations set.
The sentiment is stamped in black archival ink and clear embossed and die cut using a TH die from the tag set. I inked it slightly before removing it from die.
Various ribbons and twines, pearls and card candy finish the card off.
Both stamps are from Claritystamp Ltd.
And that is my finished card. I hope you like it. I know the recipient loved it, Theresa xx.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
