My very favourite style of Tammy's images are her vintage ones ... and today I have used a vintage nursery rhyme illustration for "Mary Mary, ..." do you remember that one?
Mary Mary quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row.
I did some research on the origin of the nursery rhyme and it proved to be a very interesting read. I won't spoil the fun .. go ahead, google it, you;ll be surprised!
Back to my card ... here it is ...
I printed the image on watercolour paper, and then coloured using Copics, and oh boy, that in itself is a challenge. the paper is SO absorbent, and I had to be really careful not to lay down too much colour so that it soaked beyond the lines of the image. I did the usual distressing with a Color Box Chalk Inkpad, and added some real vintage lace, a pretty flower, a couple of flat back pearls and a satin ribbon.
This card is also you inspiration for the new challenge "Use your Noodle and add a doodle" If you look carefully at her dress, you will see that her dress has a border pattern that I doodled in using a grey fine liner pen.
I hope that you are suitably inspired now to enter the new challenge too.
This fabulous set is not the only one in the new releases, the others are equally as precious!
