Elegant Lady in Blue....

Good evening....I do hope that you have had a good weekend...and made the most of the break in the bad weather...Karl and I have been on lots of dog walks ....including a very lovely one through the grounds of Dunham Massey...I do love that place....

I thought I would just grab five minutes with you before we settle down for the evening...and I have decided to share an elegant lady with you.....

This was one of the samples I made for the Claritystamp launch at CHA...using the new Elegant Ladies stencil, Elegant Ladies stamps and the mask from the Ladies Glasses Stamp set...

I have a thing about Sail Boat Blue Adirondack ink...I just use it again and again...( it doesn't go down well in a house of Man.Utd Fans!!!!)

I started by lightly brushing some colour onto a piece of Gelli card...

I added a small amount of Raspberry just to change the colour tone slightly...

Using a make up sponge I added some colour to the edges to add definition....and a piece of copier paper to make the pleats in her skirt ..

Next I stamped the pattern on her dress and gave her a neckline, waist, and shoes....( if only it was that easy In real life...)

 

The inner of the stencil makes a great mask....and protected her whilst I added the skyline....

Next I added some sky...

I quite liked what I have created but I felt that there was something missing...

 

So I stamped the flowers in the corners...and what a difference it makes....hope you agree..

All with one ink pad....I am going to do this again but with a different colours and see how they look...

Here is a close up of her dress....and then the skyline...

I did notice that Barbara has dressed one of these lovely ladies on her blog today too....

Just before I go.....the coffee has just arrived for those of you who like to see Eric...here he was this morning..when I was trying to clean the patio.......he is now five months old...

And a close up...sorry ...I couldn't resist...he has to carry something all the time....bless....

I hope you have an enjoyable, relaxing evening....and that next week is kind to you.

Much love and hugs,

Jo. x

  3. I love the cards with only one ink pad, so clever what you can do! So tempted with these stencils and stamps, I said on Barbara's blog that they remind me of fashion wheel, do you remember it? Loving the photos of your furry friends. Xx
