More Leanne Ellis

Hello All,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend,............ I think this may be my new favouritst stamp!!!!! She is just gorgeous.....I did buy 3 of the new Leanne Ellis stamps, but I just keep inking this one up......

I have stamped this image 3 times....The first time with gold embossing powder....I then coloured in the design with a quicky glue pen and added gilding flakes to create the gold frame.
The 2nd image I stamped with memento...inked the edges with "distress ink - antique linen and walnut stain...then did UTEE....I put in the freezer for a couple of mins to create the crackled effect. The final image I used "brilliance ink - Graphite black" then embossed with clear gloss and coloured with copics...and then I layered all the images up.

I have embossed some paper with "spellbinders - flourish" and I have used some paper from my pile of scraps.....the edges have been inked with "distress ink - antique linen".......Then over stamped with "Hero Arts - Manuscript background" and added some hand stitching.

The ribbon I had was totally the wrong red, so I coloured over it with my copics so I had a better colour's a bit patchy, but I think that works with the distressed feel......and finally I added a few gems.

This is my entry for:

The Stampman - Distress
Dutch Dare - All Stitched up

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls
