Lady in Hat by Doreen

Lady In Hat

Hello everyone, I hope by now we are all settled in nicely to our New Year and that you are all keeping well.

Today I have two cards using the Lady in Hat stamp which to me has a very sixties feel about it, as I am more than old enough to remember this era.

The first is more subdued with its colours but reminds me of the colours used then they were either bright and bold or a more subdued but colourful alternative. I have to say I like either. 

For the first card I have used  a piece of the Chocolate Baroque papers to stamp on which lend themselves to the colour palette I wanted to achieve, I used a clear sparkle brush pen to apply colour using Koh-i-Noor Watercolour Pencils, plus some embellishments from my small stash of gems using a gold colour to lift the background a little.

The second is a little brighter using only shades of blue and pink, I have used  Gloss Card and Stazon inkpad plus Koh-i-Noor Pencils to colour, plus some small donut metallic gems from my stash of little things that sparkle.  

Thank you for looking in Today

Love Doreen


  1. Two fabulous cards using this really pretty lady Doreen, and I love the idea of stamping onto background paper with the first, and some wonderful colouring and then the use of the flower portion of the stamp on the base layer in just black ink and softer colouring, and matted with some more super paper. x

    1. Pat thank you, I am guilty of being one of those people who buy the papers because I love them and not wanting to use them I am seriously trying hard to be better and use them more regularly now but I will confess I still find it hard lol


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
