Hollywood Gals

Marilyn
In the next two cards I used photo stamps by The Stampsmith I find that using a brayer to apply the ink to the stamp the best way to ink these up as it gives an even coverage, I never get good results by applying the ink pad directly to the stamp.
The Dress Stamp was a bargain it was an ex-demo stamp it is made by
Inkadinkado I stamped this in archival ink and coloured using the Prisma pencils



Bling..


Another photostamp, this one is great for adding a bit of sparkle to her jewelry it gives the card that glitzy look.

I added a matching flower made using my faithful pear punch


Bling is the name of this stamp from The Stampsmith but who exactly is she? what's her name? I know the face and I love the image but can I put a name to her....nope!

Oh now I really like these two cards Jak, I have a bit of a soft spot for those old movies star images. Your finishing touches and colour schemes turn a simple card into something very sophisticated.

These are simply stunning Jak! Great minds think alike, I had my Stampsmith stamps out this week (not as industrious as you though, I put them back uninked lol)

Remember when you got these stamps Jak - cards are twice as good this time round. Love the colour combination. The pear stamp is so effective - must try and get one of those - where did you buy it and are there any instructions anywhere for making the flowers?
