Ooo er Missus - not the sort of think I would read you understand (contact me later and I'll tell you how it ends) but this is what my bathing beauty is interested in. She's my entry to this weeks Sunday Postcard (bathing beauties) and Lots to Do (charms) challenges.
My background has been gesso'd so it's nice and textured, and stamped with the Prima newspaper stamp. This has been coloured with various distress inks and white acrylic. The beauties image is from the Crafty Image Emporium CD, which I've water coloured. Her parasol is from the same CD.
The hatpin started off as romantic red, but I wanted it to be blue so I coloured it with a peel off pen. Altogether now red and blue make PURPLE.
The rub ons are from Creative Imaginations - these are my favouritist rub-ons ever, and I thought she looked like a bit of a heartbreaker so I've given her the key to some poor fools heart!
My mum found a couple of peacock feathers and gave 'em to me bless her. She says they are unlucky and she may be right 'cos that's all she found of the peacock.
The romantic fiction is curtesy of Messrs Mills & Boon, it says in my Claudia book (you may have heard me mention it) that this is a great place to look for quotes. Boy was she right - there was some real doosies lol.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend - or do what I'm going to do and iron till the early hours !
Thanks very much for looking x
