Portia

Hello Everyone
It has been a few weeks since my last post Sleep Sweet Miranda, the lavender sachet using the beautiful Miranda.  For some months now I have very much enjoyed using the various Shakespeare stamps available from The Stampsmith, enjoying their versatility which is far beyond creating for people who are fans of Shakespeare.
The card I am sharing today, I am thrilled to say, was published in the Spring issue of Stampintgon & co's Take Ten, published alongside another four cards all featuring Shakespeare characters as the focal on each card.  Portia from Cleopatra and Friends. is featured on the first card.
Portia quickly became a firm favourite of mine alongside Ophelia who I also never tire of creating with. The other stamp used was from Cartolina Postale which I have mentioned before is an easily overlooked stamp plate but which is so useful.  Stamped onto prepared watercolour paper the stamp and torn into a panel.  Hand stained tag, lace and seam binding create a unified colour on this collage style card which was embellished with fragments of this and that.
Thank you for visiting this post, have a lovely weekend.
Wishes
Lynne

So beautiful! Love the book text and that opulent ribbon... and Portia is also looking wonderful, of course!
