Feisty Nurse by Loralie Designs card :-)

While I was at the CHA I found this FABULOUS new stamp producer called Loralie Designs ,, for those of you that embroider you may have heard of her already ,, but now she is into rubbah !!! :-) The lovely 'Susan' on the stand offered to send me a stamp set as a sample and I could choose whichever one I linked !!! THANKS SUSAN !! :-)

I chose this fab Feisty Nurse ,, it was a difficult choice though because all the designs were fab ,, so quirky !! Included in the set are come crutches, a nurses hat, a clip board , hot water bottle, loads of extras :-) I coloured the image with Copics, then masked her and used my copic air brush to add some grey to the background, then went around with Black Soot Distress Ink ,, ddn't want it too clean and clinical looking :-)
I added Glossy Accents to her glasses and watch face and used a glaze pen on the buttons and her lips , I used a Copic Spica pen to give her eyeshadow some sparkle, a Viva Paper pen ( soon coming to Simon Says Stamp) for her earrings.
I embossed a black panel with a Tim Holtz folder and used Doodlebug paper for the top half. The ribbon was in my drawer and I used a sizzix flower die to make the flowers, then embossed with Swiss Dots folder. Added a button and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and that was it ,,, I wanted to keep this fairly Clean and Simple

Close Ups :-) isn't she FAB !!! :-)
