Believe in Yourself

Most often when I stamp and color in an image, I then after to search for my background for my focal image.  That is exactly what I did with this. I colored this image with a group of stamping friends. Then a few days later I put this card together (and several other).  I still felt this background paper was too bright or bold, so I decided to layer a piece of patterned vellum over about 2/3 of the paper.  That muted the brightness a bit and I liked the results. 

The left edge, the top and bottom of the vellum are straight and the right is torn.   If you look carefully you can see that the blue edge of the flower part on the right is brighter than the blue flower under the vellum (to the left of the face).  A tiny black rhinestone was added for her earring.

Both stamps are Technique Junkie stamps.  The lady is Veiled Woman  and the saying is Believe in Yourself

Have a great day and get inky.

Very nice work - you and Crafty Nurse both rocked the coloring of that image. xoxo
