A touch of Tudor Elegance!!!



Another challenge card, this time a late one for Whiff of joy!! To use Red (Burgandy) and green...

Well whilst blog hopping i have seen some gorgeous elegant cards made with this image, she truly is Elegant looking she reminds me of An Elegant Tudor lady... The image was given to me by Mummy Fairy again AKA Jacqui, thanks loads Jacqui, the papers are Bo bunny from craftsulove, the holly flowers are jolees from yonks back, ribbin from stash and charm from craftbarn, I coloured the image using a number of meduims, inclding mainly distressed inks, but i ddn't have a red colour, now i asked myself why not!! mmmm not sure why not must remedy that one... here dress was coloured in promarkers and H20's, and the image was highlighted in H20's too...

  2. So beautiful Kim! I do love that stamp and also your colouring. The papers give a pretty vintage feel and I can see why the image reminds you of a Tudor lady. Chris x
