She's looking at you.


I made this  yesterday when I promised myself that I would have a bit of a  craftroom tidy.
A piece of Kraft card was just waiting to be used a a base layer .
Then the torn page from an old french book, not to mention the painted corrogated card.
I had no problem finding a few more bits and pieces lying around.


So onto the main image. A Lynne Perrella  stamp from Paper Artsy.
The set I used a little while ago and was still on my desk.
This was stamped and embossed using a dark powder, onto a piece of  left over,  home created  backing card.
I re-stamped the image using Chocolate Brown Staz- on.
 The top half of the image was shaded with water colours, then  I embossed this piece all over with clear embossing powder.  There  is a line of Cerne relief paint [Pebeo] along the join. Hard to see on the photo.
A little  Aged Aqua  Frantage powder at the corner gave a little added texture.
All the extra shading on this project is Vintage Photo distress ink



By coincidence this piece will   fit these challenges, I found when looking around blogland today, so I will be off to join the fun at-
The Craft-room challenge  56 which is Heat Embossing
