Portrait in Blue

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by stamping the image from the Creative Expressions Portraits Rubber Stamp Set designed by Danny Mcintosh onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using die #4 from Sue Wilson's Bermuda Die Set. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using a Smoothie.

I cut dies #5 and #6 from the same die set out of Coconut White Cardand edged with Stonewashed Adirondack. I cut die #6 out of Coconut White Card and glued the 2 die cuts together. I added some 3mm White Pearls and added my image panel.

I used die #2 from Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B to cut a panel out of Coconut White Card. I stamped around the edges using one of the foliage stamps from the Portraits stamp set and Cobalt Archival. I inked with Stonewashed Adirondack.  I cut die#2 from Sue's Scalloped Lattice Frames Set B out of Cobalt Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Morning Julia, A lovely stamped card, the foliage background looks great. I feel that these vintage stamps would be fabulous on mixed media, art journals and also scrapbooking layouts, I have lots of photos in this genre and would love these stamps to use on the layouts for these photos.
    Enjoy your day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  18. Although using stamps like this is not my thing i still love how you have done this card.
    I love the layers and the colours.
