Allsorts - Ladies and Girls

This week the challenge over at the Allsorts Challenge blog is Ladies and Girls, in celebration of International Woman's Day. For my card I've used three different Tim Holtz stamp sets, which I will admit to not having used these stamps before either. I stamped the cat walk lady first and then made a mask and covered her before stamping the Paris Cityscape in the background and the sentiment at the bottom. Next I blended some distress inks across the scene' I then took a paint brush and some tea dye ink and painted the city and added a few bright coloured  blobs at the edges to represent flowers. Finally I coloured the lady with promarkers and went around the edge with a black promarker. I rummaged in the scrap box and found some holographic card that matched the colour of the dress for the matting.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

A gorgeous card - I particularly like the open space you have left which draws the eye to the cat walk lady and gives such great perspective to the background. Anne x
