I fell for this Stampsmith Ophelia stamp the minute I saw it. It is a lovely stamp and of course, Hamlet was one of my favourite book from Shakespeare.I wanted to achieve a vintage look. I first prepared my background by using water colour and a rubber brayer to get a brown and yellow tones. When its dry, I added gold liquid leaf with a painbrush, then , when this is dry, I stamped the Ophelia image with black brilliance ink. I used foam stamps flourishes with distress ink to stamp over the ophelia image. I finished off with organza ribbon and silk fowers and yellow diamond stud.
