Rainbow Lady's challenge - Hats - Klimpt Lady

This is my answer to Rainbow Lady's challenge this week, which is - hats... I don't have many stamps of people and so I got out the Klimpt ladies and chose this one, which looks like she is wearing a close cap/hat... well, that's MY interpretation!!!

I have used my new MicaGloss inks for my background this time, so it shimmers beautifully, but does not show up on the scan, as usual... The colours are green, blue and aquamarine. I shall definitely have more of these - from Stamp Addicts, by Judikins - but not until later in the year, as I have just been having a major, expensive project done in the garden... photos when finished!!! I stamped bits of all the cube around her, to soften the image, and embossed with clear ep as usual. I also used some stamps from an early Elusive images plate and long agapanthus, from Stampendous. I think it works, and hope Cynthia likes it!! - she might think it does not qualify!!!
Thanks for looking ...

She certainly looks like she has a hat on to me Frankie. She's lovely.
I recognise your elusive images stamps, they are what I used on my postcard last week. I've just discovered them again and have been really enjoying them.
The colours you've used are lovely, like the bottom of a warm sea.
Can't wait to see the new garden photos.

Hi Frankie, love the card and the fact you are enjoying your Mica Gloss inks.
I also look forward to seeing photos of the garden, although I can't imagine what improvements it needed!
