Just one then...

Flitting by again. Trying to get lots of DT work done early as I've got some weekends away coming up. Don't fancy tinkering until 3am the night before! Has been known. So far so good. Wasn't sure I'd have time for Less is More but can't stay away. This week we're "Seeing Double". Show two of something with one layer stamping. Just one little lady with wings. Two, as that tends to steer better.
Simple to look at but a tester of patience. With clear stamps and a posh positional thingamajig, it would have been a doddle. Not so with rubber stamps. The masking was a bit tricky and she endured many wonky wings to begin with.
The mannequin is by Lost Coast Designs. I never seem to use my LC stamps which is a shame as they are gorgeous. Stormy Sky Distress ink which I don't normally stamp with as it's not so crisp but gives a great effect on Kraft. Tim wings stamped using White Brilliance ink. Finished off with a flourish of Vintage!
I'm also joining in with Try it on Tuesday as I'm digging up an oldie! Glad I did as she's rather sweet. I have to flit off again...could do with those wings myself. Thanks for taking a look. See you soon,

Sarah.

Your cards are always so individual Sarah and this one is no exception. I love the image and the wings are perfect. I couldn't live without my posh positional thingamajig - it's like doing magic! Vx
