3 May 2015


Hi all, hope you are enjoying the May Bank Holiday, it has been raining here but it looks so lush and green, the birds are busy eating all the food I put out for them, can't keep up, will have to go buy more today.
My card I am sharing with you today features a stamp that I bought a long time ago, I had always loved her when I saw her around in blogland, it took me awhile to buy the stamp as it was always out of stock but patience paid off.  I haven't seen her in awhile but when rummaging through my stamps I just had to use her.
I used Versafine Sepia ink to stamp her then coloured her with Copics I added silver glitter the the ends of her feathers, her hat and dress.  I also added TH Gold distress stickles to the flowers.
The papers are new to me they are from Papermania Blush Midnight Capsule Collection, this is the first time I have used them but thought they went lovely with the image.  I added a row of pearl flowers, gold taffeta bow,  the white flowers are actually lace I cut them into separate flowers then added red carnations and a leaf.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for taking time out to come and visit I do hope that you like what you have seen, I would also like to thank everyone who has left me comments on my previous posts I really appreciate them.

Such a pretty creation Lorraine. Funny enough I have a similar stamp sitting on my work desk waiting for me but I thought I would do my commenting first.
It is raining here today and hasn't stopped all morning.

Donna Ellis said...

No wonder you've had your eye on this stamp for so long! It's beautiful, Lorraine. I like the glitzy background papers, and the fabric adornments so prevalent in that day (of the fashion). Like you, our April showers have brought a lot of wonderful spring green. We have only 2 feeders, but it is a full time job keeping them full, even tho the feeders are rigged to close up if anything heavier than a cardinal touches them. We love our birds. The blue jays and wood peckers have learned to steal food from the feeders while remaining in flight mode! Hope your week is a great one! hugs, de
