Underneath the lamp light......

Good morning folks!

I hope you all survived the blustery night unscathed.  Have you got all your Christmas cards done yet??  Me neither!  Not many more to go now though.  Next year, I WILL be more organised!  (...did I say that last year..???)

Any way, this isn't a Christmas card  - it is another of the cards from the last Clarity show on TV.  I have used one of the fab new stencils and the lovely lady is 'Velvet'
I like doing cards with just one or two colours, so for this I chose grey and yellow - I think it is a very elegant combination!

The arch is created by placing the stencil over the card and shading through the aperture.  I used one of the skyline masks for the buildings in the background.  The lamp post is stamped into place and coloured slightly to darken it.
I stamped Velvet in place, then used fusible film and fibres to make her coat - there is a wonderful new yellow colour!!

The centre piece of the stencil(the arch) has lovely rays in it, so I used that to create the rays in the background.
I am pleased with this card, even if I say so myself!

Hope you all have a great day - I am off for a Christmas lunch with my quiz team colleagues today - looking forward to it!
Take care, Janet xx
