Beautiful Dancing Woman Card - by Dot Leathbridge
Do you ever just use stamps on their own
as a challenge to yourself?
It is one of my favourite things to do.
Today's tutorial shows a card that is all stamping
with a splash of pink and grey.
I hope you enjoy it.
The stamp sets used are Dancing Woman,
Antique Botanicals and I Love Leaves.
I started by making some masks. The flowers and the Dancing Woman
were stamped onto photo copy paper and then cut out.
Remember that when you make a mask you cut inside the image.
Stamp the flowers.
They look random, however I practiced on some scrap
paper first so that they would be in the right positions.
I didn't want the lady to be covered up.
Carefully place the flower masks over the top of the flowers
then stamp the Dancing Woman.
I've added a little rustic water colouring with Distress Ink
to the lady's dress and skin.
to the area within the rectangle.
I wanted the flowers to 'pop' without having to do anything to them.
after all that can make a big difference.
I Love Leaves so that they are behind the rectangle and the flowers.
I used pink and grey for lovely soft tones.
There is a little softness added to the edge of the card
with black ink as well.
Rubber Dance have a lot of beautiful and classical stamps
that are fun to use. This stamp is definitely one of them.
You'll find lots of inspiration over on our facebook page.
The inspiration that I used was 'beauty'.
That is what I saw when I looked at the Mood Board.
What do you see?
Wishing everyone a crafty day!
