Lady in Blue

Hello, time to remind you of our challenge at Try it on Tuesdays which is Add a Photo and you still have one week left to enter.
For my card I have used a photo style stamp from Oxford Impressions - April in Paris.  My background  was made with the 'Shabby Chic' technique described by Tim Holtz in the CC Vol 1, page 49, why haven't I done this sooner,  love the effect.   My rose and ivy were paper and dipped in melted UTEE, the cameo is papercraft clay and coloured with Promarkers.

This is my last 'live' post for a couple of weeks as we are off on holiday to India to do the 'Golden Triangle' of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Lots of travelling and probably busy days, but something I have wanted to do for years.  I'm not sure what internet access we will have, so the next few posts are scheduled and I will catch up with you soon.

An exquisite creation with one of my all time favourite photo real stamps from Oxford Impressions. I like that you gently tinted the image.
Have the most wonderful trip.
