Lady In Red



I was lucky enough to manage to get some oxide distress ink pads at the Harrogate show last Friday, I only bought six as I was not sure I needed them, oh yes I really do need the other six now, I love them!  On this background I have used faded jeans, wilted violet and cracked pistachio ,liberally spritzed with water. I stamped the Justrite Paris Boutique background stamp very lightly as I didn' t want a strong print and then I went back in and restamped the tower and Paris bit again so it showed up more. I stamped the runway girl directly onto the background but them I tried to bleach out her face and ended up with a hole in the paper LOL. stamped her on a bit of card and cut out most of her,the legs ,hand and dog are the original stamped bits.Coloured her with festive berries distress ink.
I'd like to enter my card into Try It On Tuesday Challenge - The Lady In Red
