1900's Lady


This card was made for Sweet Stamps - Sketch Challenge
Please visit the Sweet Stamps Blog and enter the challenge for chance to win 
$20 shopping spree in the store!! 


I made this card for the sketch challenge at SweetStamps blog.  Using Beckett Expression Candlelight paper, I die cut a scalloped oval from Cheery Lynn Designs Little Stackers.  Then I stamped the 1900's Lady from SweetStamps.com on the oval using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Markers.  I sponged the background with Sand Castle Shades Dye ink from SweetStamps.com. I cut a second scalloped oval using the Little Stackers Scallop Oval and the Oval Little Stacker dies and layered this over the oval that I colored.  I used various papers from Kaiser Craft, the pearls were made using Liquid Pearls and the flowers were from Boutique Fleur.
