Thank You for such positive comments on the circus canvas. Maybe I need to dabble in colour a little bit more often!
For this post I’d say it is more in keeping with my normal style in that pink is on display and also lace! The card I am sharing is DT art for The Stampsmith. I made this card many months ago when I first received the beautiful Olivia and Friends stamp plate. At the time of making the card I had been staining nearly everything in sight including tags and lace and so I reached for one of those tags to stamp Olivia onto. I knew I wanted to use one of the Cartolina Postale stamps to form the background and by luck a sheet of watercolour paper I had in my stash was a perfect match for the tag and the lace. The watercolour paper had been prepared with various media including Gesso, paints and watersoluble crayons. When I make up such sheets I work in a very random fashion, translated that means I cannot always remember what exactly I’ve used!The actual card was simply embellished with some lace, a paper flower and on Olivia’s dress you might have spotted the tiniest piece of lace with a pearl.
