They're from a range of Elegant Ladies stencils by Claritystamp. I just had to choose these ones as I just love the style of their dresses.
I used Broken China, Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord Distress Inks for the base colour.....
.....then stamped the floral pattern on two of the dresses in the same colour. The rest of the stamping was all done in Jet Black Archival ink. Some shading for the folds of the skirt was added with Spectrum Noir pencils.
They are such fun to play with. You can make them look however you want and, with the speech bubble in the set, you can make them say whatever you want too. I used a tiny "Happy Birthday" stamp by Clarity but you could also use your computer and print some text, then stamp the bubble over it.
Stay warm and I hope you have a lovely Sunday. I'm spending mine in my craft room. I'm going to use iPlayer Radio to catch-up on yesterday's Finders Keepers show (it's on BBC Radio York on Saturday mornings and is a bit like the old TV show Treasure Hunt but on the radio) and make some more Clarity samples.
