The Stampmans new Glamour Lady

Here's the Glamour Lady from The Stampman's new plate designed by Tracey Coates. She has a solid dress so you can have a lot of fun with embossing powders, foils, glitters and imagination.

I never know what colour mood I'm going to be in on any given day and todays mood is blue and lavender so I used my Starburst Stains from the Icicle Creek set which are a wonderfully pale collection as I wanted a strong contrast with the dress. I made a scrunch background and covered a blank card base. To flatten this out more use a wetish glue like pva or a pritt stick and push the crinkles down. I then used a piece of black card embossed with the new Jules Jewells embossing folder for the lower half.
I used the icicle creek set again to make a piece of card to stamp on, I do this by puddling the Starburst stains so just paint a base coat on of any colour starburst stain and add blots of other colours and use your heat gun to push the colours around. This will give you a nice flat surface to stamp directly onto.

I stamped and embossed the Glamour Lady with moonglow midnight sapphire embossing powder (These really are gorgeous powders!) and I've restamped the lady separately using a glue pad and added glitter, cut it out and stuck it over the embossed one. I've edged round with a light and dark blue and overstamped again with the dark blue using the fab circles you get on the plate in the corners.

On the dress I've added some feathers which come with a gem and the flap on the dress is a prima flower folded over so it sticks up a bit. I shaded the lady in with a skin toned promarker.

Hope you check out Traceys new sheet over at The Stampman as you get so many stamps in this set to use (the sentiment is also from it) and a range of styles too.
