Ginger Rogers


Ok, can anyone tell me what company this image is from? I have no idea. (Edited to add: Thanks to Ramsey, I now know this is a Penny Black image! Woot! Thanks Ramsey!) I hosted a bella swap recently on SCS, and one of the swappers included a few images as a hostess gift for me. I posted on that thread, asking what company they were by, but never did get a response. I think she is super cute though, don't you!? And she goes perfectly with my Ginger Rogers stamp. I think that sentiment is one of the first stamps I ever bought back in 2001 when I started stamping... and this is the first card I've ever used it on! I *love* me some Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire though - I had to have it. I even have some of their old movie posters framed and hanging in my upstairs hallway!

I had no idea what kind of ink this image was stamped in, and being that there was only one image, I didn't want to run the risk of ruining it with my copics if the color bled, so I used my Prismacolors and Gamsol on her for the most part. Her dress, hair, and seat cushion are prismacolors, her skin is copic (Skin White), and so are the shadows, but I was very careful to not go over any black lines with my marker. Not as easy as it sounds! The legs of the stool and her earrings are Sakura gelly roll pens (silver and gold respectively). I also used SU's white gel pen to make the dots on the black paper, and a little pink SU chalk on her cheeks (the devil is in the details, right?!).

Recipe:
Stamps: Inkadinkado sentiment, Evening Glow by Penny Black
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red (sponged edges)
Other: Sakura gelly roll pen (silver and gold), SU White gel pen, RibbonFX dotted ribbon, black brads, Prismacolors, Gamsol, Copic Markers


In other news, have y'all heard of High Hopes Rubber Stamps? They have some of the cutest images (and you know me, I'm all about the cute!). I just fell in love with them when Lorie used their giraffe stamp for this card that she submitted for my kid-cards swap a few months ago. Anyhow, they recently released some new stamps and you can win a set of them via blog candy here!

There's also AWESOME Hanglar & Stanglar blog candy available on Maya's blog, here!
