A Lady's Perogative to be Late!



Hi All,

Yes, its a Lady's prerogative to be late and this Sketchy Lady from Clarity Stamps is no exception!(Well I have to blame someone for my constant lateness in entering LIM challenges.)
The challenge this week is 'Masking' and I have masked 'the lady' and then stamped and clear embossed the background stamp from the Tim Holtz Papillon set,  (I love this set and was lucky a few weeks ago to win over at Through the Craftroom Door and this was my pick.)  I sponged Milled Lavender DI over the background and the lady is coloured with Promarkers. 
I am also entering this card in
  Papercrafting Journey - Pastels
  Crafts & Me - Spring colours
  Little Red Waggon - CAS
  Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes

That's it for now, and thanks for looking.

Avril xx

Hi Avril. I've been coming over to say Hi since Monday, just don't know where the time goes.
It was so lovely to catch up with you last Saturday. I hope you managed to finish all your shopping. I see you fell for that gorgeous Indigo Blu girl on your last post. I wanted the Poppies but they'd sold out!!! I' have to be quicker next time!!
This card is beautiful. I love that TH background and you've used my favourite technique too, talk about great minds!!!!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend, the forecast is looking good.
Hugs Lisax
