The Lady in Red for TioT's

Over at Try it on Tuesdays our new theme is.......
Inspired by a song

What kind of song would  give you inspiration, popular songs  classical music, a song for the children a Christmas Carol etc. etc.
Please pop over for all the details and see how the team interpreted the theme.

The song that inspired me for this card is
The Lady in Red
by Chris de Burgh.
I had a few stencil wall bases  that I had made a while ago, when I was making a couple of cards for friends in a very similar style. The stamps are all Darkroom door, well,  thats what it said on the storage tin, but I cannot be 100% sure.
I had help fussy cutting the ladies. but I am being patient and taking my time .
Every thing crafty is taking me twice or thrice as long , but I am making progress.
All the shading is distress inks and  water colour paint.

Thank you for calling in today, you are always very welcome here.


  1. I love the song and I LOVE your pretty card! Just so beautiful!
    Don't mind that all needs a bit longer! You will be quick again very soon- I am sure!
    Hugs, Susi

  2. Love your fantastic red ladies, great piece! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Your lovely ladies are perfect examples of that song. I enlarged the photo and have to tell you, those fussy cut women were perfect in every way. I'm so glad you are on the mend and I know how frustrating it can be when you want to be completely well again. Wish I could help you, but I could NEVER do any better fussy cutting than your lovely women in red.

  4. Oh wow, what a super idea. Looks great.
    Greetings Carola
