Lady In Blue Bloggers Challenge

It felt so good to actually make a card  yesterday!  Sorry I have been ignoring my blog, but you know how life sometimes gets in the way, and before you know it, weeks flew by you.  I hope I can keep my art going.

This week, the Bloggers Challenge over at Lisa's is a sketch.  I'm not a sketch gal, but did fall in love with this one, and hope you enjoy it.


I love when what you visualize becomes the final outcome.  The stamp is from Artistic Outpost, the Flapper Fashion plate.  I water colored her with ink pads.  The bottom blue piece is stamped lightly and pleated with my long neglected crimper, I couldn't believe I found it in the jungle!  The rose is cut from a die, then rolled, they turn out so pretty.  I recently broke down and bought a Cricut, and the black die is from one of the new frame cart's, don't ya' just love it!

Good to be back, I've missed ya'll...........hugz

Feel free to join in the challenge by visiting Lisa's blog above...........
