I recently got a free
printable from Zorana on her beautiful blog here. Unfortunately, I printed it on regular copy paper, and the inks underneath bled through. So my lovely lady has a bluish-pink complexion. Definitely not what I wanted, but another learning experience. Here she is...

The page had left over
ink from the project opposite. I covered it with star tissue paper and gel medium.

I stamped on Jet Black 
Archival ink with my Stampers Anonymous Bitty Grunge set. Then sponged on Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar using Crafters Workshop Mini Tile Texture stencil.

Now came Zorana's
lady. I adhered some lace across her bodice and a section in her hair.

I sketched around
her form with soft charcoal, and rubbed it out with my finger creating a shadow effect.

I brushed over her lips
with Worn Lipstick DI and her eyes with Weathered Wood. I wrote Psalm 43:5 in the upper right corner, boxing it in with a Black Fine Sharpie.

I stamped the sentiment
from the Donna Downey Insightful Meadows set by Unity, onto white cardstock, cut it out, and adhered it with gel medium. A bit more shadowing around the sentiment, around the star at the bottom of the page and around all the page edges.

I'm linking my page at:

Now have a look at the Penmakers latest...

A very unique
fountain pen in one of his new showcases.

Made of wood burl
and stablized with various shades of resins.

Thanks for stopping by!

I think she looks beautiful. That is so cool that that is printable. I am going to have to go check that site out. And of course the pen looks wonderful. Your hubby does good work.

I do hope you have a good weekend.
