Porcelain Lady



I Love these "Porcelain papers - Basic Grey" I have been playing with them all weekend...only wish I bought 2 packs now...not that I am short of other paper to use! LOL...

I have got quite a lot of cutesie cards in my collection at the mo, so I wanted to do something a little different. I dug out this old stamp from "personal impressions" I bought it from QVC forever ago, back when I had a handful of stamps and my entire crafting collection fit in one shoe box!!!...I have coloured her in with copics and the edges of the mat have been inked up, using "Distress ink, worn lipstick & shabby shutters", and the pink scroll coming down the side was a matching sticker from "basic Grey" that came with the paper pack. I have also used my "Hero arts - manuscript" to add some text to the background paper. Then I have used a little ribbon, created flowers with my punches, and as always a touch of stickels!!

This is my entry for:

Stamptacular Sunday
- Flower Power
Copic Creations - (I have chosen challenge 1 - skin tones)
Oh Alice - fine print (too add text to the design)

As always, thanks for looking
