Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks & Wow Embossing powder.

Hello there,

It's the 1st of May, and the start of a new Visible Image Challenge,
the theme for this month is 'Anything Goes',
so as long as you use at least ONE, yes one, Visible Image stamp on your project, the worlds your oyster,
 and of course don't forget, there's a prize of £20 of new stamps for the winning project.

My DT inspiration is a 6"x 8" card, created using the fabulous 
Sewing Room Set and the Large Butterfly stamp.

Most of the projects I've seen made using the sewing set, have been vintage, so you all know me, I love a bit of colour, so I've made it bright and very girly.
The background was created using Antique Linen with the tape measure stamp, I added a pink button hole randomly, and used the stitch stamp around the edges in Worn lipstick.

I stamped loads of the buttons and cotton reels in different shades of Distress ink, and fussy cut them. The dress form I stamped in Vintage Photo, and shaded it with Walnut stain, and coated it with glossy accents, and fussy cut it, I also stamped just the body part in Worn Lipstick, and again shaded one side, fussy cut and added it on top of the dress form as a bodice, added some pleated pink tulle and a bit of ribbon as a skirt, and popped on a sparkly gem.

The large butterfly I stamped in versamark, and heat embossed in pink Wow powder, fussy cut, and coloured with Distress ink, and glued to the back of the Dress form.

 I wired some of the buttons together, to make bunting, I stamped 2 sentiments onto card, cut them out and stitched with a stamp, lol. I also added a bit of rolled tulle mixed in with the cotton reels, and mixed 3 hat pins in with the buttons.

If you haven't got a blog, and would still like to enter the Challenge, just pop over to the Visible Image Facebook Group, and add your photo stating that it's a Challenge entry.

Thank you for popping by, and thank you for your fab comments, I love reading them.
