Black and White Lady

Stamps: Oxford Impressions Times Past Plate, Paper Bag Studios Dream Notion Plate
Inks: StaZon Black
Cardstock: Bazzill, "Yes" White
Other: Stamp Positioner, Ribbon, Diamantes, Stampin Up Punch, White Brad

Well, I thought this would be a simple task! No, oh no. I kept mucking up the positioning with the stamp positioner. Once I got the aligning right, then I decided they weren't balanced enough so started again. I think I have stamped these ladies out half a dozen times before I got this lot. But, it was a case of I was NOT going to give in!!!!

I tried scanning this card as is, but it did not actually showed the white card base at all well, so I scanned it on a piece of black card.

Being Melbourne Cup Day here, I thought it appropriate to have an elegant lady in a hat! For those not Australian, it is a big deal today for ladies to dress to the nines and if at the races there are always fashion competitions etc etc!

I did not go in to the races this year 1. Hubby is out working the ground, and 2. No way did I want to be anywhere where someone could knock my recovering shoulder. If someone did, I am sure the scene would not be pretty!!! So best I stay at home!
