Permission To Steal My Heart

Hello Everyone
With Valentine’s Day starting to occupy stampers minds I thought I would share with you a card which I made some months ago, when I first received Oxford Impressions Waiting For Mr Darcy.
This is a quick scheduled post. Behind the scenes I am trying to organise blog posts … my great intention was to do so before the end of 2014 but, the same old story, time passing by far too quickly!onelynnemoncrieffPeeking through the layers of paint are fragments of book text with some shabby stamping in the form of the damask stamp from French Script (again, Oxford Impressions) which I partially inked up before randomly stamping to create pattern and texture to the background. fourYou can see that I didn’t colour in any of the images.  They would look stunning but for me it isn’t something I tend to do.twoLaid down, beneath the paint are torn pieces of pattern paper in a pattern which suited the stamps.threeThank You for your visit to this post.

    So beautiful and subtle. I love the book text just peeping through. I like that you left the figures uncoloured. This enhances the vintage look of the piece. The damask on the background is beautifully effective too. This is a perfect little work of art. xxx

    Such a lovely card, Lynne!! This is a ‘Valentine’ that even Jane Austen herself would long to receive (from you…not Mr. Darcy!) 😉 🙂 I love those pieces of book pages that you’ve gently hidden in the background, Lynne 🙂 Just fabulous and keeping your images stamped in black is perfect–they make the romantically toned hues of your background surround them in warmth and love. Now, I can’t remember if Mr. Darcy is a cad (jerk-in modern day terms), but, I’ll take him a la Colin Firth any day!! 🙂 🙂 (I read Pride & Prejudice 20+ years ago and I don’t watch any of the movies made from Jane Austen novels…but I do know that Colin Firth played Mr. Darcy in one of the movies!) 🙂 🙂 XOXO-Shari

    I immediately thought of Mr. Darcy before I read your intro.
