The Stampman and Sepia
Here's my sepia card - the picture makes it look more yellowy than it actually is. Ive used distress inks old paper, frayed burlap and vintage photo with some mustard seed to finish off. The lady stamp is by crafty Individuals and comes as a set of 4. i have used the distress inks to watercolour her. The piece behind her is using the same colours of distress inks and also a swirl mini mask from Tim Holtz. The background stamp on the large part of the card is a background stamp from stampers anoymous Tim holtz range too. the lace I have coloured using teh inks and then finished it off with gold ribbon. I've also used some brown sparkly paper by Kanban in between to mat the layers up.
I enjoyed playing with this colour palatte although my fingers looked like I was a seriously heavy smoker when i had finished!
Thanks for your comments about my Sons going off to Uni. Sunday was a really hard day. Although I wasn't going to go to Uxbridge I did go in the end if only to delay saying goodbye for a few more hours. I had a drop vertigo attack in the middle of the Uni campus so felt mightily embarrassed but am thankfully un hurt. James is busy making new friends and although said he would text me and tell me when to ring him tonight in the end he is going out with friends he has made. Hard though that is for me it is what should be - Hes off on a new journey in his life and I am very proud.
