Scrapbook Boutique Mood Board Challenge

The colours I used on this card were inspired by the February Mood Board at Scrapbook Boutique, the layout by a challenge at Papertrey Ink (which I can't enter this card in cos I did not use any of their products...silly me).
I spent a lot of time stamping up the image of the veiled woman (Stamp Rosa a now defunct company) trying to get a really clear image (photo style stamps are notorious for lousy images). I find the best way is to ink up a brayer and roll it over the image in 4 different directions before stamping.  Then I used Glimmer Mist Sprays in orange and yellow tones to get the colour I wanted. Oh I masked off her face before spraying. The stamps in the background are from a Basic Grey/ 2 Scoops set called "Heart Smudge"...not too sure these are available any more either. Just goes to show how long I have been stamping, stamp companies have come and gone but I am still stamping on!!

Thanks for sharing how you created this fab card Barb. I know what you mean about out-living/stamping some of the original companies in this business lol. Thanks for joining in the SB Feb challenge.
