Lucille Ball

I made this card as a store sample for the Embellished Scrapbook Boutique.  The photo of Lucille Ball is actually a photostamp from The Stampsmith.  With these type of stamps, you need to stamp the image on glossy paper (not photo paper)  with archival ink for the best results.  I then colored the image with chalks.  For some reason, the peachy color on the flesh does not show up very well even in real life. 

I handmade the flowers using a small retro flower punch by Paper Shapers.  Just stack six flowers on top of each other with glue in the center.  Alternate the petals as you go.  On the top flower, crease each petal down the center, place glue on the petals and bend up so they meet in the middle.  You have to hold them for a bit while the glue dries.  On the remaining layers, lift each petal up to give the flower dimension. 

Stampsmith: Lucille Ball
Martha Stewart punches: Frond and border punch
Paper Shaper: small retro flower
Paper: Darcie

Thanks for looking!
