Time With The Family

Family Tea (unmounted single stamp) evokes a bygone era, where life was lived at a more gentle pace and family was what mattered most.

For this mini hanging I did not tint the photo but it is a stamp which particularly lends itself to tinting with Distress Inks.

Romance & Togetherness

This card was created using the Stampsmith's "Wanda" single unmounted stamp. It's actually a strip of portraits in photo, solarized and artistic versions. In other words, three faces in one!

I only used the photo image, stamping her in black ink and collaging the image with a vintage image from my collection. I thought these two ladies looked a lot alike, so I surrounded them with the romance of Paris!

This second card is of Lucy and the Gang from the Stampsmith's "Lucy" plate. In this scene, they are the best of friends, traveling through life "Together"!

Hollywood Glamour

The Stampsmith's Bellydancer represents all out glamour. I wanted sparkle and shimmer but still to retain the essence of the stamp which is old style Hollywood Glamour which was always elegant and tasteful.
For brief instructions on how I made this large tag, go to my Blog, Adorn.

No regrets...

I think she certainly looks like she has no regrets.

I'm embarrassed to say that yet again, I can't remember who this is.  Perhaps someone could remind me? I think my brain must be fading!

Classical Beauty

Alongside Serena and Maude, Ophelia is another stamp image which is instantly associated with The Stampsmith. Ophelia comes in tiny, regular and large and for the card below I used the regular size.

The cardbase is a mask used in conjunction with heritage emulsion (latex) paints to create an aged, chalky appearance. Ophelia is stamped onto ordinary cardstock not glossy cardstock. The eagle eyed amongst you will notice the scrap of text is German and not Danish!

I've recently acquired these gorgeous canvas tags from Maya Road and found a perfect opportunity to use one with this stamp if Audrey Hepburn.
