Build it Up at Fashionable Stamping

'Build it Up' - using at least 3 stamps - is the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping this fortnight, chosen by yours truly.
I decided on a large tag , I first clear embossed the Tim Holtz French Script and postmark, then masked and embossed the address stamp into three.  The dress form was stamped and embossed with black EP. I distressed the background withDusty Concord, Bundled Sage, Iced Spruce and Tumbled Glass, these colours were also used to dye the ribbon. I cut a Tattered Doily and distressed with the same inks, them stamped the addresses with Bundled Sage before coating with Distress Clear Rock Cancy Crackle paint. The flowers, a Joycraft die, were tinted with Dusty Concord.
My very talented teamies have some wonderful inspiration for you so please pop over here to take a look.
We are again sponsored by Flonzcraft, who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
