Let's Get Messy & Inky over at FSC

Hi Folks,

I can't believe its nearly 2 weeks since I last posted on here, I thought life was settling down a bit after a hectic month or so, but no...... DD brought her move home forward, so as Boyfriend is still working in the NW.............best laid plans as they say.   Anyhow.....

Its time for a new theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and for this one you can get as messy and inky as you like!

For my little 'number' I used a piece of pearl paper and lots of Alcohol Inks and the shine really shows through.  I stamped the Kanban Dress from the Jasper set, onto this and cut out the hat and dress. I stamped it again on white card and coloured the dress form section with Promarkers before layering the dress on top.  The background card was inked with Milled Lavender, run the the CB and then Dusty Concord sponged over the raised embossed parts.  I stamped a couple of the gears  from the set and heat embossed with gold EP  The butterfly was stamped on Acetate with Stazon and coloured on the reverse with AI's. Words are Tim Holtz matted onto a piece of the inked pearl paper.

I hope you will join us this time as its the perfect excuse to 'play', and if you need any inspiration, there are some fabulous 'creations' from the rest of the DT.

  I am entering this card in

    Card Makin Mamas - Rubber Stamping
