The Q and L challenge at The Craft Barn this time is Strong and/or Miss - my word is 'Miss' taken from the song Ms Grace by the Tymes which was released in the US in 1974 to limited success but hit No. 1 in the UK in 1975. I took the word 'Miss' from the first line of the Chorus which is 'ooh ooh ooh Miss Grace, Satin and Perfume and Lace'. I have been singing the song since I chose it. Mind you, I do with every song I choose!
I have had this lady stamp for ages - the name on the stamp is Creative Stamping and I inked her up with black Archival, covered with a sheet of baking parchment then Mint Sparkle Angelina Fibres, another sheet of baking parchment and ironed on medium. The ironed fibre looks like silk. I stamped the lady again on white card, embossed with clear powder and coloured the skin, hair and shoes with Promarkers. I cut both out and stuck together. I only cut the clothes and hat out from the fibres. the background is inked with Distress Inks (using brushes) I can't remember what colours and then I stamped, faintly, Joanna Sheen perfume bottles over the background I then added the lady, words, lace and flowers (dabbed with frosted lace Stickles) and it was done!
