* Umbrella Lady


Today I have an inky card to share. 

The stamp reminds me so much of Mary Poppins, but she is called Silhouette Lady with Umbrella and is from Lost Coast Designs. I made her background by applying Distress Oxides (Fossilised Amber, Spiced Pumpkin and Candied Apple) with a blending tool, then stencilling over in the same shades and darkening them slightly with Black Soot. I also blended Black Soot around the edges to create a darker frame and stamped some Bare Branches and three tiny bird silhouettes by Inkylicious. Once I was happy with the background I used my stamping platform to stamp the Umbrella Lady in black Archival ink. I added a Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker, which I cut into strips, as my sentiment.

That's all for today!

Thanks for stopping by.
