Kitty Lane's Bather stamp

I thought I would add another Kitty Lane card today - they really are burning a hole in my hard drive, saying "blog me",  "blog me"!

I used this photograph to show the size of the card and thus the size of the stamp (in both rubber and digital) - this one is called Bather.  

I do love the vintage look of this - very 1920's in Australia!

Lots of orchard plants and only a few spikes - I didn't separate them last year and the pots are very crowded. However, it lets you judge the size of the card and therefore stamp.

I used Copics, XPress Blending card and SU card, plus some DP supplied by Kitty herself.  I added some wet embossing for the sentiment (SU EP) and three metal charms (?? no idea - think they are Making Memories) featuring sea creatures. I also tucked a postcard stamped by a LOTV stamp onto SU Very Vanilla. behind the image, as it suited the idea of a holiday and missing someone who could be there! I am not sure whose stamp the sentiment is from - sorry. 

I like the way it looks sandy! The EP is orange - SU Tangerine Tango. A close up of the charms too.

The postcard is also vintage looking!

An idea of the colouring and the stamp itself. It is inside a box except for the top of the ball and her feet. I mounted it onto black before adding it to the top of the VV card. Then the whole was mounted onto some Tangerine Tango card. 

Some seam binding (dark brown) and the DP was mounted onto black card before being put onto a piece of pearl white folded for a card. 

I love this image and found it very easy to colour.  I have it as a digital, so can change the size if I want but I didn't do this - like it as is. 

I will enter this in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion:  use a charm ( I used three)
Make it Monday: anything goes usually
Red Carpet Studio: Pretty in Pink - yep, her bathers are pink!

What a great card. Thanks for listing all the details - I think you must have an amazing craft room and a great memory to remember you have this little trinkets! I get things and forget I have them - not a good sign.
