"Lady June" Anne Bennett

Carol this month asked me to work with "Lady June", a very glamourous lady on an acrylic stamp set from Woodware.  The set can be found in the Cubby Hole shop - and I do hope I have inspired you a little with my three cards.
 Materials Used
Lady June Woodware clear stamp set; Adirondack Wild Plum Earthtones ink pad; Heritage wild lavendar ink pad; Versafine imperial purple and black ink pads; Mic paints; Irridescent and other coloured glitter glue; Irridescent bead and adhesive jewels, Glossy accents or other strong glue; Watercolour paper or similar card.

Card One
Using the lavendar and wild plum ink pads and a piece of cut and dry foam, create the background leaving an uninked section in the middle, roughly large enough to stamp "Lady June".  Spray lightly with water and scatter salt on the wet background.  Leave to dry and brush off salt.  You can mop areas to control wetness and colour if desired (optional).
Using Versafine stamp the Lady June image in the clear central area.  Lighly colour with mica paints in desired areas of the stamp.  Use glitter glue to make beads on the spray decoration on the hat.  With Glossy Accent glue the bead onto the pendant.

Layer up as desired and attach card.  Use stamped and cut out butterflies to frame the stamped image.  Glaze the butterflies with Glossy Accents if so desired.

Two further cards will follow - however all cards are now with Carol in the Cubby Hole should you wish to see them in the flesh.  Many thanks  Anne Bennett
