Vintage Style Elegant Lady | So Suzy Stamps

Hello crafty friends,

Today I used a silhouette stamp and modified it a bit for my card.  This is a photo heavy post showing the progress steps.  My goal is to show how simple it can be to stretch the use of a silhouette stamp.




I used a special ink from Ink on 3.  It was designed specifically for no coloring techniques. It stamps just enough of an impression to color over and disappear once colored over, making it perfect for a no line coloring style.  I used Copic markers to color the skin, hair and flower.  I left the stamp in my Misti so I could overstamp it using Versamark and then added Rose Gold embossing powder on just the skirt.  I added criss cross straps by using a marker with watermark ink and embossed over.

Products used on today's post are listed at the end.  affiliate links are used - see disclosure page for more details.

After doing copic coloring on skin, hair and flower - as you can see I added long hair


After adding the rose gold embossing on dress and same on sentiment.  The straps were added using an embossing marker (linked below) - the stamp is intended to be a view of the back of the dress, therefore my reasons for adding both the longer hair and straps


Added some loose watercoloring using Distress Ink Victorian Velvet around the edges.  I colored in the white areas of the skirt (even though I should probably have done before embossing) with the same neutral skin tone.


Here's an identical sized die cut panel.  I took the same ink and applied in a messy fashion direct to the paper by dragging it around


I then cut the panel diagonally


I colored some tissue paper with the same ink - I tried both direct to tissue and some by putting the ink onto the craft mat, spritzing with water and smoothing the tissue onto it.  I dried with a heat tool and crumpled it up to place at two corners.


I placed the split panel onto a card base (A6 finished size) 4.5" x 6.25"


I layered the top stamped panel, sandwiching the tissue in-between.  I also added some splatters to the panel (I put paper over top of the previously stamped areas to avoid splatters getting onto the lady or sentiment.



And that's it for my card!
