SNG - Hat Lady ...

...  Good morning all!  I'm running a bit late with this post - should have been up a few hours ago, but I completely lost track of the days!  Anyhow, here's a card that I made using one of Rick St Dennis's wonderful Hat Lady images.  The ladies are so glamorous; I've made a couple of Hat Lady cards before here and here.  Here's today's card:

Hello - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Rick St Dennis Digi - 1960 Couture Hat; Winnie & Walter - The Big, The Bold & The Happy, The Big, The Bold & Extras
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog; Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo
Dies: Spellbinders - Petit Ovals Lg (S4-138) #5, Petit Ovals Scalloped Lg (S4-139) #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Teresa Collins DP - Far and Away; SU Card - Melon Mambo; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear

The one good thing about running late with today's card, is that I got inspiration for the layout from this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge - FMS#170.  It's a super sketch and can be ultra clean and simple, or a bit more dressed up like my card.  Like many of us, I have lots of design papers which I've been keeping safe in my stash.  One of this year's resolution is to USE the papers that I've got.

I printed the digi on white card, coloured her with Copic markers and added some sparkle to her gems with a clear Wink of Stella brush.  I cut the image out with an oval die and adhered it to a pink mat layer.  I found this elegant damask style paper and thought it would be the perfect backing.  I added a simple greeting to the front.  On the inside of the card, I cut a mat layer of pink card and on the white panel added some roses.

Rick is a fabulous artist and his digi images are a joy to colour.  If you want to see more of his Hat Lady collection check out Rick's Esty and Zibbet shops.  Before I go here are all the cards I've made - looks like I've got a theme going!!
