Chic chick

This is a card that I made this afternoon for a French friend of mine. She is always so beautifully dressed with matching jewellery, bag, shoes etc. and lived and worked for many years in Paris. The lady stamp is a Clarity stamp which I stamped with black Archival ink, cut out then stamped on various papers and cut out to "dress" her. The signpost and the souvenir de Paris are part of a sheet of Aladine stamps that I found here in a local garden centre.

Art card

Here is a card that I made for a dear professional artist friend who recently stayed with us. It looks like a simple card but in fact comprises many different techniques. The A R T letters were made with alcohol inks on Bondaweb, stencilled over with TH mask letters and cut out. The easel was a Clarity stamp, as was the paint brush which was stamped and then cut out and painted with Inktense pencils. The palette was stamped onto opaque shrink plastic, coloured (though you can't see it!)and cut out. I am quite pleased with the finished card and I hope she will be too!
