Flowers in Her Hair (by Judith)

Hello everyone, I have a colourful project to share with you today, featuring the Summer Fayre stamp that was part of the recent TV shows on Hochanda.

I have stamped the image onto a square topper, and then masked the image. I coloured the background with Distress Ink, and then loosely coloured the image with water based markers, sometimes using a water brush to dilute the colours.

I created a larger background using matching colours of  Distress Ink, and spritzed the background with water. Once the background was dry, I stamped an image from the Poppy Edges stamp set, to frame the central image, using Distress Ink. I added a large red bow before I assembled the card, choosing a toning olive green card to finish.

I hope you like her pink hair and green eyeshadow. She reminds me of a festival goer, with her bright accessories!

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
