Among my Christmas gifts was this rather lovely B Line stamp, and this week I decided to make a card with it. I began by stamping the image onto a piece of ivory card with sepia
Versafine ink. I usually use ColourSoft pencils for colouring but I have
found that although I have the complete set of them there is not much
choice of skin tones so I recently bought some Spectrum Noir pens in
the skin colours and they are what I used for this. I did add a tiny touch of red pencil to her lips though, and a brown one to darken her eyelids, and then some gold Stickles to her beads. When that was dry I cut the piece into a rectangle and used a corner punch to round the corners, and shaded the edge with vintage photo Distress ink.I chose two toning papers from a Paper Mania pack called Nostalgia Warm for the backing panels, tearing them and inking the edges and then mounting them onto an ivory base card. Next I wrapped some brown organza ribbon and a piece of pale pink lace across and finished it with a bow and a little beige rose.The main image is mounted on foam pads over the ribbon.
I am entering this for, Lets Ink it Up; Anything Goes, and
