This is one of my favorite cards that I designed for the TAC catalogue. It didn't make the catalogue but it was on display at seminar which is why I am showing it to you now. When I first saw this set I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but I had a lot of fun using it! The ladies in this set are a hoot and it made designing this card so much fun! The set is called Kallioppe and retails for $10.95 which includes 3 different ladies and 3 different sayings.
The paper that I used is from the TAC Hemingway collection which is just gorgeous! I love the colors! The cardstock and ribbon are also available through TAC and is coordinated to match the Hemingway paper collection.
I colored the ladies with aquacolor crayons and a dove blender. The dresses and the buckle on the shoe were colored with glaze pens which makes them shine--LOVE those pens too!! You can see the shine a little better from this angle.
So, try a stamp set that you may not think is "your" style and you may be surprised with what you come up with!
