This is my card for this month's The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog. The theme is Ladies Day.
The stamps I used for this card are Botanical 3 by The Artistic Stamper and Riley Mixed Media Doll from Prima which is also available from The Artistic Stamper.
I started by stamping Riley onto smooth white card using a Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad. I coloured her with ProMarkers and Copics. I cut around the edge leaving a white border.
I stamped the skirt section again. Onto the skirt I stamped the small rose from the Botanical 3 stamp set. I used a Pine Needles Distress pen and a pink brush pen to colour directly onto the stamp and then I stamped the rose onto the skirt. I cut the skirt out and attached it to the complete doll with foam pads.
For the background I cut a large square of kraft card. I distressed the edges on the kraft card with scissors before attaching it to the card. For the rose patterned panel I cut a square of white card. I added Old Paper and Frayed Burlap Distress ink with a blending tool to the edge of the white square. I stamped the small rose stamp with Old Paper Distress ink pad all over the square.
I stamped a selection of rose. Again I used a Pine Needles Distress pen and a pink brush pen to colour directly onto the stamp before stamping it onto smooth white card. I cut out all the roses and attached them to the card with the sentiment. Then sentiment is also part of the Botanical 3 stamp set.
I added Star Dust Stickles to Riley and Glossy Accents to her shoes. To finish the card I added dark pink faux pearls and faux stitching.
