Rainbow Lady's Challenge 151 - Lady in Red
The challenge over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog this week is another song title "The Lady in Red". Love that song!
I am trying very hard to post on my blog more frequently, not necessarily every day, but more often than I did. I just don't know where my days go, but before I know it, it is the evening again! I actually made this card this morning (see, I started out well enough today, but don't know what happened to the afternoon, I came back for lunch then got engrossed in a bit of needle felting and knitting, as you do).
Anyway, I digress. My card uses a stamp from a plate by Creative Expressions. I stamped onto white card, coloured the flesh and hair with copics, then paper-pieced the dress, hat and shoes using paper from a christmas pack I bought years ago (I forgot to check who it was by). The image was cut out using a nestie, then a faux nestie, using the same size die for the black card backing the image. I have edged the image with black soot DI. This is mounted using 3D foam onto my backing, which uses a paper from my precious Graphicus guild paper pack (I decided I had been stroking it quite long enough and it was high time I started using it).
The border uses a MS ribbon punch, threaded with red gross grain polka dot ribbon. The same ribbon has been used for the bow.
It's just a pity I didn't make it back into my craft room this afternoon as I had intended. Never mind, tomorrow is another day!
Thanks for stopping by. As always I love to read your comments. And I promise not to accidentally delete yours this time Helen!
