Lady in pink


I love to do paper piecing on my cards and this stamp is perfect for that technique. I stamped with Memento black ink on white cardstock. Then stamped on designer paper with Versafine black. Cut out hat, top and purse pieces. Colored image with Copic markers then glued on the top, hat and purse. Cut out white image with Nestabilities rectangle die and pink layer with scalloped rectangle die. Stitched background papers. Attached image to background layer. Placed flowers on lower left corner and ribbon with flower to upper right corner to finish.
