Hows that title for a mouth full..... just love this sentiment. Ended up stamping it again on a small card and put it on the wall.
This is a card that started out with me stamping all the stamps from the set
I have a new Penny Black Die and wanted to use it and it just looks to me to be perfect with the 'oriental delights' stamps. I was not planning to do much with the little girl as it was the ladies I was more interested in. After colouring all the images with Copics I must have changed my mind half a dozen times. After colouring the little girl I was really drawn to using her, just love that smile that seems to shine out of her cute little face.
I finally came up with this design you see.
Had to do a bit of floor work and after finishing thought it would have probably looked better as shadow but its done now. I was trying to cove and succeeded in, covering the bits of red that bled and though I tried to remove with colourless blending it was still very obvious. That red is so hard to keep inside the stamping, especially if you are doing layers of blending. I love how she turned out, those freckles.
I used the Penny black die 51-130 (comes as two different patterns) and I just love this design. I cut twice and cut one of the circles in half to attach to the card. If you click on the patterned paper you will see its a wonderful red and muted gold oriental pattern and was perfect for this card.
The sentiment is from a set of stamps I won from Unity stamps.
There are a number of sentiments in the set and they are all beautiful.
This sweetie is so cute and even in traditional costume I can see many other ideas.
Stamping + Die-cuts + Colouring images
I am the Die Queen (well working on it) and I love dies. This is my favourite
(at this time). Who wouldn't love it: the pattern and design of this die is so eye catching.
Love it and it has so much potential to be explored. Screams oriental pattern and is fantastic
in gold mirror silver mirror black and white cardstock.
Thank you so much for coming to my blog to visit and I hope you come again soon.
