  1. Stamp bride in black StazOn ink onto ivory card. Paint skirt and headdress with white acrylic paint. Paint top with Pewter Liquid Pearls. Set aside to dry. Reg leaves 013
  2. Cover top with clear Distress Crackle paint. This will dry clear and shiny (and cracked of course). Cover skirt with Kroma crackle gel. This goes on clear, but will dry an off-white matt. The thicker you apply it, the more obvious the cracks. Spread crackle gel around edges of card in thinner layer using palette knife. Set aside to dry. This may take a 1-3 days. Reg leaves 012
  3. Sponge card with Antique Linen Distress ink (going around bride). Sponge edges (going in a little) with Sepia Archival ink. Apply a little Brushed Pewter Distress Stain, blending in with a wet paint brush if needed. Sponge edges only with Potting Soil Archival ink.
  4. Position and stamp wordings of choice with the aid of a t-grid. Reg leaves 010
  5. Apply glue to bouquet area and using tweezers, place single cut flowers from ribbon edge into position. Apply dot of Silver Stickles into centre of flowers and set aside to dry.
  6. Cut out frame in brown card. Run Silver embossing pad around inside edge and emboss with silver embossing powder. Run pad over frame and around outside edge randomly and emboss with silver powder. Mount with black magic mount over bride image.
  7. Attach finished front of card to silver matting and brown backing card.

Image (28) Here’s one more lady from a bygone era,  though not on the unmounted set with the  others.

 High Society Lady 3257H by Stamp-it.  Wording by Stamper’s Anonymous K4-1631.

 It’s a bit hard to see in the scan, but her dress  has a lovely shimmer to it. I coloured it with  “Sage” chalk, then spritzed  with “Perfect Pearl” PP Mist. The dress was cut  out and layered over stamped image. I used  “White Opal” liquid pearls for her pearl  necklace and to paint her gloves, and some yellow shades to add highlights in her hair.

Vintage Ladies

Lexie's elegant Lady  Silver Fox Elegant Lady   Stamp-it’s unmounted set094 by Yvette of the Vintage Ladies has always been a favourite of mine. The lady in peach (on left) was dressed by Lexie. I particularly love the material she has used for the dress and the way it is gathered with tiny pearls added. The card is mounted onto Cristina Re’s Deco paper sponged with Distress Spun Sugar, then some Bazzill card for backing. I did a slightly modified version of it (on right), using Distress re-inkers (stormy sky and fired brick) as watercolours instead of the material. Don’t you love the luxurious shawl in the metallic flowersoft?
