How excited was I to receive my sample sets of the new TandaStamps Retro Women 3 & 4 on Saturday morning? Erm....well very excited actually.
These two sets are just absolutely stunning and I spent all day Saturday and Sunday just dying to have a session with them but had other more pressing jobs to get done first so didn't get time to play until the early hours of this morning.
These are the two cards I managed to make before my eyelids got to needing matchsticks to keep them open.
The first one I made was the Scottish card. It looks very dark but it's not a very good scan. The Windows Photo Gallery programme doesn't have the fine tuning that my previous programme had.
I really love this stamp. I'm not totally sure she is a Scottish lass but that was the first thing I thought when I saw it. The colour scheme is navy blue and green so I stamped the image in Midnight Blue Stazon and coloured with Marvy Le Plumes. Her jacket was coloured with white gel pen.
The bathroom card is my favourite as a finished card as I love the colours of the background paper.....Celebrate Beads Green by American Traditional Designs.
I only bought it on Friday and had no particular use in mind for it but I think it just goes so well with this image.
I used a mega punch to punch the scallop circle and a Sizzix die for the cream circle. Stamoed the image and coloured with Marvy's and a water brush. The detail around the edge was added with a fine tipped drawing pen.
The bubbles were made using clear bubble stickers.
There are lots more stamps to use yet so I will be having another session later today when I have had some sleep.
Hope the rain didn't spoil your weekend too much.
Bye for now
