Only A Tattooed Lady Will Paint The Town Read (and published news)

Hello Everyone
Fear not, it isn’t another Halloween post, not for the moment at least but next week I will have more to share.
When I received Oxford Impressions Tattooed Ladies I immediately thought of my friend Lorraine.  We have been friends since we met during college years and although our lives are quite different from way back then, we are still in contact.  Anyway, when I saw the stamps I knew I would make use of them for her birthday card as Lorraine has tattoos.  Tattoos are a bit like Halloween, a topic that can divide opinion and already I’ve mentioned which side of the fence I sit  but nevertheless I do like this stamp plate as the images are just so very different.DIGITAL CAMERAThis card has a much bolder colour palette than I prefer, using a background of a Gelli print directly onto the cardbase with the contrast of lace and also the paper doily.DIGITAL CAMERAA gathering of fragments in the form of fabric, tulle, twine and topped with a bloom.
Prior to sending I did use Gel Medium to adhere that piece of tape which decided to not stick down!  Is it only me or do most of you have to use Gel Medium when using tapes?DIGITAL CAMERAMaybe this is something we all need to remind ourselves.  To …

Staying with a similar theme – I was thrilled to discover my Roll Up! canvas was published in the Apr/May/June issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.  That was a wee while ago now but it seems I am only now catching up.DIGITAL CAMERATomorrow I return with my That’s Crafty DT post.
Many thanks for visiting this post.

    Both pieces look fabulous Lynne and that red colour is certainly a change for you! But great that you managed to adjust your preferred colour palette to taste and style of the recipient. The circus piece looks fabulous too.

    Hope you get your internet sorted, but at least you are able to post, so that is something.

    Have a good weekend

    Love the unique feel to both of these Lynne and the red theme suits them perfectly. I’ve always harboured a secret wish to get a small tattoo but never done anything about it. Who knows, when the mid-life crisis hits?! Hugs, Jenny x

    Both pieces are exquisite Lynne! Love your daring use of those warm reds, too. And you most certainly dare to be original, that’s for sure! Take care, Ira x

    Wow – definitely a red letter day with this post! I love how clearly you can see the lacy patterns in your print against the bold scarlet, and of course it’s the perfect colour for the circus canvas – congrats on another publication success.
