Today's card is using the 3rd Melange Woman stamp from Paper Wings Productions, and her name is Diana.
The background of this card was made from a piece of eggshell card stock run through a Sizzix embossing folder on my Cuttlebug. After removing it from the folder, I took an older chestnut roan chalk ink pad and ran it lightly over the embossed image. Be very careful if you use a new chalk ink pad, because they are very juicy when new. I then stamped out Diana on the same eggshell stock and colored her with my Copic markers. Most of the shading is on the stamp itself, so is very easy to make the image look so real. Then using a flourish die from Die-namics and "Hello Friend" from a Sizzix plate, I ran a bronze sheet of stock through the Cuttlebug for the embellishments. All the pieces were then adhered to a kraft colored card base.
A very easy card with just a little time needed to complete it. Tomorrow I will show and explain the last card in the series of Melange Women group. Again, if you would like to have a set of these wonderful images or purchase them singly, click here. See you tomorrow!
