Three Beautiful Maidens

From the soft, delicate, romantic and pretty card of yesterday we're onto a contrast of a set of 3 CAS and more dramatic cards today. I made the first card and loved it so much that I decided to create a couple more. The dramatic red is just glorious!

Unfortunately, I think these Lilac Lemon design rubber stamps have been discontinued now. I adore Art Deco and Art Noveaux ladies but I don't often colour these particular stamps up; I really should use them more often.

Anyway, I'm rambling, so let's have a close up of the ladies showing the glamour dust added to the images and also get these entered into a few challenges.

The image above is one of my particular favourites.

I'm entering these into the following challenges:
Dream Valley Challenge - Stamp Something
Secret Crafter - Clean and Simple
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Crafting for All Seasons - First Challenge is Anything Goes
Divas By Design - One for the Girls
For Fun Challenges - Patriotic Colours (Red and White for England)
Paper Pretties Birthday Card

All the images are coloured with ProMarkers and they have some glamour dust added just to add a little interest and catch the light.

The gorgeous sentiments are by Papertrey Ink.

Hope everyone in the UK is enjoying their bank holiday weekend. I've heard it'll be raining when this post pops onto my blog so with a bit of luck I'll be making the most of that and I'll be squirrelled away in my craft room. {{Grins}}

Thanks for looking and see you tomorrow.
