Final peeps at Swalk and Humpfrey stamps

i had so much fun with this stamp useing lots of colours ..... building up the form and shapes in layers
 i used greys to dull down the browns so that i would get a rich colour all round....
hopeing  the red seat  would frame the image.........  after all she is a girl about town enjoying a nice glass of rich full bodied red wine.....the  touquise for that extra splash of colour
mounted onto a red scalloped square then onto 2 embossed pieces of white card stock with some gingham ribbon and card candy

here is a little water colour i made the horse shoe template to keep in with the stamp 
 i embossed with a darice heart folder then used  gell to place the cut out stamp and the flowers and a few pearl strands with  small white satin bows all layered onto white pearlised paper cut with a punch.

here i coloured in the stamps with spectrum noir pens.... cut him out and matted onto  navy card stock then fixed on a spring so he wobbles ..........after all he is puddle jumping
 i then printed off the 3 different papers from the swalk cd matted them onto navy card stock  there are some extra splashes with crystal glitter on but they are not showing up in picture.... to finish a few card candies in matching colours

this little fellow is my favorite image i coloured him in and decided to do a spotty back ground so that he stood out ......cut him out with  scalloped nestie die and distressed the edges matted and layered onto contrasting core-dination card stock distressed as befor then added some buttons and the odd pearl  here and there.

this card reminds me of my Aunties wedding we were dressed in greens and gold
the papers were from the Humpfrey CD matted on to contrasting card stock with a few flowers and pearl strands and silk ivy leaves

a big congratulations to the winner of the blog hop
