Vintage collage

I don't love this... sprayed and stenciled a long time ago and the further I got into it the less I liked the colors. "Painted lady" and floral image are LaBlanche, bathing beauties from Graphic 45 and handsome man from the new Splash of Color sheets... I love the sentimenet "blessed image" but this was a page that would never be 'right'. Colored lady with Dylusions in waterbrush and floral with reinkers.

Ruby Slippers

Just love this "Ruby Slippers" stamp from Stampendous... great for cards, art journaling. Used Worn LIpstick, Peeled Paint, Broken China, yellow and a bit of Spun Sugar distress inks for background, spritzed and let 'em run together, then "stenciled" with Pumice Stone, Worn Lipstick and Victorian Velvet distress ink using Dyan Reaveley dots and fans stencils (foam dauber, not the "spray with water" technique). Distressed the gears, highlighted the shoe with glossy accents and distress stickles in pewter on the shoe gears. Also did some clear embossing to pop the red. Slipper was colored with watercolor pencils, not sure I like that on this one.. will try coloring on glitter with copics for next one.
