Lovely Lady in Rust with The Stampsmith

Hi Dreamers!
I have about 45 minutes this morning and thought you would enjoy seeing this Lovely Lady in rust card I made using a stamp from the Belinda and Friends Full Sheet by The Stampsmith.  I love this set and have used it over and over to make dreamy romantic cards!

I used a surprising color to stamp with--Siena Archival Ink.  Love the effect on this vintage style stamp.  Then I repeated that dark rusty shade in the papers.

I had this yellow ribbon laying out on my work table and decided that I wanted to work that into this card.  I love the contrast between the strong colors in the ink and papers with this soft touch of yellow in the ribbon and one layer of CS.   I was thinking that these would be great colors for a romantic boudoir.

I would like to enter my Lovely Lady in the following fun challenges:
As you like it: 2 favorite color combos----rust and yellow
Simon Says Stamp and show: favorite ink--Siena

Well, I have to run.  I hope you day is filled with laughter, joy, and some time to stamp!  Love ya.
PS: posted pics of my studio room re-do yesterday here.



  1. Hi Karen. Your rust lady with the sienna blending color is awesome. I can see what you love that stamp. It's beautiful. I also really like the background paper you've used behind her. You're right. The yellow ribbon does provide quite a nice contrast! Thanks for sharing your lovely card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
