Pink out of Africa

Hi there and thank you for dropping in to see me 
on this Sunday. 

Hope you are well and enjoying your day. 

Horrid weather here today - rain - but am I disappointed - NO 
the garden needs the rain, and it has given me a 
chance to catch up the that "housework" !!!

Always prefer to be doing craft or the garden I have to say, but 
things do need to be done. 

Chicken is in the oven so thought I would share my card 
with you today. 

I made it with the New Clarity Stamps - using just the lady from the Africa set.

But first made one of my backgrounds using Ken Oliver Burst powders, puffing 
a bit onto my glass mat, spraying it, and mopping up with white card stock. 

Cut down to size and stamped in black ink on the card stock. 

Then used a scrap of "insert" paper to make the dress, and highlighted with 

a pink alcohol pen. Cut out the sections and used wet glue to stick onto the dress. 

Used pink distress inks to create further texture and design for the background 
using a stencil. 

Added a ribbon bow and ribbon border and a sentiment. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


I am so glad that you have taken the time to come over to visit me. 

I find, in times of stress, to spend my time either crafting, blogging, or gardening
so helpful. 

I have some wonderful friends in Blogland 

so a big thank you from me to you.
