* Vera Lane Studio: Pretty Ladies


Happy Spring Bank Holiday to those who enjoy the holiday today! 
In true British style the weather has turned for the worse just in time for the long holiday weekend :( 

Today it's my DT day for Vera Lane Studio and I have a couple of tags featuring the Pretty Ladies who were released last Wednesday.

Aren't these ladies sweet! As usual, I coloured them with Copic markers and added some white Posca paint highlights. I fussy cut them and prepared the tag backgrounds. I found the ghost gelli print in my stash and added a little sage green acrylic paint with a brayer. I stamped some script with Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide then stamped with secondary black ink. White paint splatters were added and the edges of the tag inked with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink.
I tore some washi to ground my ladies and glued them directly onto the tag. The sentiments come with the set - I cut them into strips and inked around the edges , then adhered to the tag, outlining them with a black fine line pen. The tag ribbons echo the colours I used.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
