Kianel gave us a delightful sketch this week over at Ismaki, which I used to create this card. Theme Thursday's current theme is famous faces. Over at One Powerful Hour, the theme is black backgrounds. I LOVE black! I'm sure everyone knows this famous face...right? It's one of the fabulous photo stamps from Stampsmith, stamped on glossy cardstock with Ancient Page Coal Black Ink. The sentiment stamp is from Quietfire Design. The silvery strip on the left is tinfoil, glued to cardstock, Cuttlebug embossed with the Textured Textiles embossing folder, painted with black gesso, then sanded lightly to distress. The rose at the bottom right is paper pieced and pop dotted for added dimension, then lightly glittered. Now here's something you might be interested in: Stampsmith is starting a design team! My uber talented stamping friend Kim Prince is working with Estelle of the Stampsmith on a wonderful new blog. If you enjoy photo stamps, you can get all the details of the design team call right here, and you can see the beautiful stamps Estelle has to offer right here.
This is a second version, using a lavender rose instead of a pink rose, to meet Ismaki's optional challenge requirement. I think I like the pink rose version better. It's softer, like the lady herself.
Thanks so much for visiting today, and as always, for your thoughtful comments.
