Inky Day



Hi All,
Have had a few hours to play and get messy today so thought I would make a card for Craft Room challenge which is  - Ink It .
I won a $50 gift cert a few weeks ago at Through the Craft Room Door and as part of my prize I chose the Tim Holtz Papillion Stamps.  I love the butterflies, but I love the background script even more and have been dying to use it.
For this card I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with clear EP  I then over stamped the dress form, from the Haberdashery set with Bronze Metallic Ink, and heat embossed with Bronze EP. Then sponged with Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Vintage photo D Is before stamping the Paris/NewYork/London text.  The background paper was made using the dress pattern instructions stamped in Rich Cocoa, the torn piece was stamped with the needle book image and some Crafty Individuals labels, I embossed the torn edge with gold EP.  The flower was made with organza, gauze(from the First Aid box) and lace all coloured with Spun Sugar DI.
There are a few sewing related challenges so I am entering there as well:
  Papertake Weekly - A Stitch In Time
  Simon Says Stamp & Show - Anything Goes
  Lets Ink It Up - Distressing
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Anything Goes
  Allsorts - Button & Thread
  Alphabet Challenge - E for Embroidery

Thats it for now, hope you like it!
