Sir Stampalot is "ladies and fashion". I thought it was perfect for this beautiful image by Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie called "All is not lost". The Sugar Bowl has a brilliant sketch which I rotated and I opted to use one "Reflections" and two "Melody" papers by Prima (the brown matting is actually patterned with blue dots) in keeping with Polka Doodles request for "three patterned papers" and the "vintage" theme at Truly Scrumptious. Colour Create want us to use "pink, blue and brown". I didn't use acetate or crackle glaze which were optional.
The beautiful girl is coloured with Copics - for some reason(and it might be the heat in my Craft Croft) my Copics weren't blending very well and if anyone has any ideas why I would be interested to know) and I have decoupaged four of the roses on the image. Three extra paper roses (from stash) and a Martha Stewart punched butterfly provide some additional embellishment. The sentiment "you're so special" is by Hero Arts and was (very riskily for me) stamped straight onto the finished card.
Vintage is not something I usually do but I was very pleased with this finished card and I hope the intended recipient - the sweet daughter of my best friend will like it too!
