Vintage Girl

I went to a rubber stamp convention yesterday and won a door prize!!!  I got a brand new rubber stamp, not even available to the general public yet, from Stampin’ D’Amour!! Pamela, the owner, told me that I was the very first to own this stamp!!! Of course I had to use it first thing upon arriving home. I brought out some other rubber stamps to greet it, and here she is in all her beauty:

I stamped her in waterproof black ink on watercolour paper.  I watercoloured her face, and then used a coloured pencil and odorless mineral spirits for her hat – a marriage of my two favourite ways to colour!

I cased this card from Denise’s (aka Card Crazy) FS56 Petal Pusher card for today’s (Sunday) SCS challenge

Card Supplies:

Stamps:  Stampin’ D’Amour (girl’s head), Stampin’ Up! (background swirls from Carte Postale, heart from Gentler Times, script from French Script), Technique Tuesday (faux ribbon, little flower), Stampington & Company (corner flourish), Custom stamp (“Mon Amour”) commissioned from Imagine Stamps.

Paper:  PaperTrey Vintage Cream, Strathmore’s 140 lb cold-pressed watercolour paper (girl’s head), Neenah’s Paper Classic Linen Baronial Ivory (fake ribbon), burgundy.

Ink:  Memories Black, Tim Holtz (Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, Aged Mahogany).

Miscellaneous:  Winsor & Newton watercolours (girl’s face), Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits (girl’s hat and collar), dimensionals, sponge.

Edited note:  This stamp is now available for sale!  It is here:
