Well-Behaved Women

While perusing the Lil' Inker site a few days after their latest release*, the Snarky Lady stamp set caught my eye (surprise) and jumped into my cart. Last weekend, while trying to make a dent in my UFO pile, this happened:

I saw an area on that piece of water color paper from the UFO pile that haden't gotten inked, and it was a perfect fit for that sentiment. I stamped and colored the lady on a piece of white card stock, then added some black lines with a fine-point Sharpie. The lady's panel is the same height as the water color panel, so I did an offset layout. It shows off more of the color at the top and covers up a spot at the bottom where the colors kindof muddied. Gotta love a craft that lets you hide the less-than-perfect parts, don't you? :) Well, not that any of my cards' visible parts are anywhere close to perfect, but you know what I mean.

The piece of Bazzill Sea Glass paper was in the UFO pile, too, and I deemed it the perfect layer. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to her scarf for just a touch of sass.

I have a couple more UFO projects I'll share later this week. Thanks for stopping by!

* I like to wait for a release's frenzy to die down before I dip my toe into it. I can't deal with frenzy.

  2. Wonderful background, and that quote is one of my favorites. I can see why it jumped in your cart!
