Lady of Pearls

Over at Anything but a Card they have the theme of Atc's.  I needed to make some for a swap being hosted on the PaperPlay forum.  

I used a Lynne Perrella Stamp, coloured it with distressed ink markers and a water brush, and hi-lighted areas with my white posca pen.  To finish I added lots (for me) of pearls as the PaperPlay theme is decorate, so I have decorated my lady in pearls!!!

this is lovely, I struggle with atc's being so small, but she's perfect.

Like this one too, not a pearly person but this is done tastefully

Very beautiful Sam and I love the 'skirt' effect with the material on the bottom-very clever idea

Blimey - triple posting, and each one a delight in a different way! Love the tinting on your LP image, and that ruched fringe is a lovely touch.

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
