* Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers GDT: Distracted and Unsympathetic - Monochrome



I would firstly like to welcome

Mary Jordon and
Nancy Iverson
Thank you so much for becoming followers of my little blog!


I am delighted to be a guest designer at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

I recently had the honour of being crowned Queen of Snark - this is such a huge privilege!

The new challenge starts today and the theme is M is for Monochromatic

Here is the card I made:

I love this quirky woman. She is from a PaperArtsy stamp designed by Lynn Perrella 
#LPC 049. 
I stamped her with Twilight Versafine Claire, masked her and inked the background using a stencil and stamps from AALL & Create (stencil #113, stamps #294, #375 and #385). I used  various Distress Oxides in shades of blue and embossed with Distress Glaze in Speckled Egg.
The sentiment is a snarky, Big Talk sticker from the Tim Holtz collection.
Here she is in close up. Despite her snarky sentiment, I think this quirky lady is very elegant and quite how she came to have birdies in her hands and on her head is pure serendipity.

Thank you to the Sisters for inviting me to be a guest on their blog. If you have time, please consider joining the M is for Monochromatic Challenge, or just pop over to see the amazing samples of work made by the DT and the challenge entrants.

That's all for now.
