613 Avenue Create. Using a Rubber Stamp

Hiya,This is a first for me ..I have used a stamp for the first time to make a card..I don't stamp as a rule as I have arthritis in my fingers and it make's it very difficult to stamp..,also the stamps are usually smaller which is harder for me to colour in so I tend not to use them ..
I coloured her in using Polychromos Pencils onto Neenah card then coloured the background in with craft chalks that have fine glitter throughout..very pretty ,but not very subtle...The Backing paper is from a Tonic Pad called Simply Blooms and has been mounted onto craft card ,as was the image.I used...
I mounted the paper onto the craft card and before I added it to the card blank I added a pretty lace strip, pleated across the card using red double sided tape,then added two rows of cross grain pale purple ribbon across to hide the small amount of sticky tape left showing and to finish it off too..I then placed the topper with 3D Glue Gel ,and added a double bow ..To finish I added some pretty gems to the left of the card and a lovely old button with a large gem in the middle of it to the middle of the bow..Thank you for visiting :)xx
