Bright and Beautiful...

There's a new challenge going up for August on Crafty Individuals blog called 'Bright and Beautiful'
Here's the first of my samples - I thought I'd better make more than one as this is the challenge that I've chosen - you know how I love bright colours!
Here's a close-up:

Here's straight on and then slightly sideways so you can see it's made with a 3x4 inch deep canvas:

I've used the corset set of stamps CI-306 and the buildings CI-271.

For the colours I've used Kaleidacolor inkpads: Bouquet for the background (brayered every which way but loose!) and Calypso for the mannequins.

Thanks for looking!

The Great Gatsby...

Here are another two cards I made using Gatsby plate from Artistic Stamper.
This first one uses the same face as in the previous post:

It's done on a Kaleidacolor background and ended up using colours of card I hadn't planned on!
This second one is again on a similar background and uses some handmade paper which, despite having loads of, I haven't used for ages!

So, both slightly unexpected outcomes!

All stamps available from Happy Daze.

Thanks for looking!
