I am woman

Well obviously, I am a woman but it's the title of this week's DCM dare, set by Lythan who says our cards must feature at least one feminine image. I had no trouble with the 'extra' rules since I don't own a single Tilda, Sugar Nellie or Bella image :o)

I was lucky enough to win some stamps from Tanda Stamps recently and I chose the Retro Women 2 plate which I thought would offer a perfect image for this dare. Click through for a bigger view if you want it...



I thought it would be fun to add just a little splash of colour for the shoes and although you can't really see on the photo, I went over the legs with a glaze pen to give them the slight sheen of silk stockings.

Supplies: Come Up and See Us from Retro Women 2 plate (Tanda Stamps), Paisley backgrounder (Cornish Heritage Farms), Ranger Archival Jet Black, Tim Holtz Distress Antique Linen, ivory and black grosgrain from stash, flower punches, seed beads and pin from stash, corner rounder, foam tape, decorative scissors, Sakura Glaze Pen, Prismacolor pencil.

Thanks for taking a peep - do let me know what you think if you have a minute!

Amazing card. I'm trying to ignore those backgrounder stamps and you are not helping by making them look so good!

Rosie said...

I love that Tandastamps plate and was deeply envious of you!! What a super job you've made of your card... and yes, Sheila is amazing, isn't she? I've just entered another 3 of her grab bag raffles - fingers crossed (for Belle mainly!).
I do soooo agree with you ref Tilda, Nellie and Bella! I'm afraid I can make anything but cutesy!
