A little glamour

We could probably all do with a little glamour in our lives right now, I suspect there's a lot of leisure wear, pyjamas and quite a few bad hair days going on! Ruth has set today's challenge over at Daring Cardmakers and the theme is glamour - whatever makes you feel like a movie star!

I made a card for a friend who is a musician. She sometimes plays for shows so a stamp called "Show Girls" seemed like a good idea - I was lucky enough to win a Lost Coast challenge a while ago and chose this stamp as part of my prize, I think these girls are great fun! My friend loves purple and although she's unlikely to be caught in this sort of outfit, she does love a bit of glamour (more usually in the form of nail polish, make up and a shiny or sparkly dress).

The girls are stamped and masked then a couple of purple inks smooshed on using a piece of acetate. A bit of simple copic colouring, a few sequins and a doodled grounding finish it off.

You always pleasantly surprise me with the diversity of your work! One reason I always look forward to seeing what you are up to!

The girls are fun and I like the idea of the smoosh for them. The loose edges reminds me of the frilly underlayers of costumes for vintage showgirls.

Stay safe and hugs

Fun! And a great take on the glamourous theme - I should have thought of using that stamp myself...
