At A Glance

At A Glance
This card is made using the Glance stamp from Stampendous!
I love how this stamp has an almost 'Audrey Hepburn' look about her.

I had another play on Skype with Shirley...learning how to use the products that I've got in another way.  How to be a little bit more random in my designs...and just having great company while I craft.
I'm still learning to embrace white space...but that will come.

I have teamed her up with the Big Dots, Maple Branch and Crusade Dreamweaver stencils...these are background stencils and ideal for the layering effect that I was after.

Andy Skinner also designs for Stampendous and I have used some of his Industrial stamps to add interest to the layers of distress paint underneath.

A little bit of stamping, tone-on-tone, was done quite simply using some birthday words.

This card was pure fun to make!!!
Lots of paint, stencils and stamps.
And a whole lot of randomness.

You have shown her off to perfection Dot, I just want to run out and buy the stamp.

All the Background layering frames her face beautifully.

Love our Skype sessions x x

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x x
