Hello, Many of you will know, just how much I liked using the Ladies Profile stamp from Bee Crafty. This card was made for the show at Alexandra Palace at the weekend, so I thought I would share it with you today. I also used the wonderful Sparkle Pens that Leonie launched a little while ago on Hochanda.

I started by stamping the Ladies Profile stamp in the top right hand corner of my card, I used black Archival for this.

Next I bent the Dandelion stamp to make it look like the lady was blowing the seed heads. I then stamped some additional seed heads.

I used the head of the dandelion around the card to form a little border. Then chose my sentiment and stamped using black Archival ink.

To mask off the profile, I used Pebeo Drawing gum. I wanted the colour to show from behind all of the other images so didn't mask anything else.

To colour the background, I used the beautiful Sparkle pens from Leonie. Fading from Cobalt through to Arctic, both from the'Frosty Christmas' set going onto Iris and Lavender from the 'Wrapped Up' set. Lastly I removed the drawing gum and shaded the lady with a selection of alcohol markers. I added a mat using blue Centura Pearl card from the darks collection from Crafters Companion.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you have enjoyed the step by step I have shared and the finished project. I hope you will visit again soon. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
