New stamps!

I've been wanting to order some stamps from So Suzy for ages,  so when I was lucky enough to win a voucher for any US stamp company in Darnell's recent NBUS challenge I jumped at the chance - and here's my first make with two of them.

I stamped the silhouette onto a white die cut and emphasised the necklace with liquid pearls. The background is made by daubing white card with Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud ink but not actually blending it, to give a patchy, sky-like finish with a very slight sheen to it.

I don't know who originally wrote that quote, but she must have been a lady after my own heart! It sounds a bit like Dorothy Parker, but I think if it was her it would be even better known than it is.

I am sharing this with the Alphabet Challenge - Q is for Quote

Bwahaha! I love that you used your voucher this way, Jane!! It's in keeping with my NBUS theme for that challenge! I haven't heard that one before. Sounds a bit like Mae West, too. Or me! Or you! You did a beautiful job with that background and with making your tart look like a lady!! Hugs, Darnell
