Barbara Gray Inspired Card.....

 Good afternoon one and all, isn't it a glorious day?? The sun is shining brightly, here in Kent. 

The card that i am showing today is of umbrellas and rain..... (typical of me to be behind the times!! LOL !!).

I bought some masks and rubber stamps from Barbara Gray... this is my first attempt at using them. I used the mask of the lady and inked around it to make the image white. Then i used the stamps and stamped the necklace and umbrella onto the lady with the scottie dog by her side. I used embossed dotty card and run the ink pad over it to high-light the dots. The leaves are made by using Sue Wilson Dies. The flowers are in the dotty card and simply rolled into a flower. I could have gone mad and tried to use the brayer to ink ... a la' Barbara ... but i kept it simple for my first go.

Enjoy the weather today and hopefully tomorrow as well. x

  4. Hi Janice
    Well you're not behind the times here today as its persisting down!
    Great idea with the mask. Your card looks almost like a cameo. Love the rolled flowers too.
    Have a great day.
