Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Glossy Accents and Stickles.



Hi there,

Another creation using some fabulous Visible Image Stamps, on this card I used


I used just two Distress ink colours for this card, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves.
 Leaving a half inch strip on the bottom, I stamped half the card with 'Grunge Polka Dots', using Worn Lipstick, then the other half with the Tape measure from 'The Sewing Set', I added the buttonhole stamp down one side, and using the same colour, I stamped the stitches at the bottom, then blended both coloured inks around all the edges.
 On a separate piece of card, using Seedless preserves, I stamped the body form, buttons, cotton reel, and fussy cut them. I stamped the medium Poinsettia bract in Worn Lipstick, and fussy cut, separating the leaves.


I shaped the leaves and made a skirt, then added Stickles round the edges. I stamped the top of the body form again, this time in Worn Lipstick, and cut out a vest for the top of the dress, stuck it to make a vest, then added Stickles. I tied a piece of ribbon around the waist to finish off.


I stamped a sentiment from The Sewing set, and hung the buttons and cotton reel from ribbon at the bottom, I went over them with Stickles and Glossy accents to finish off.

Don't forget the Monthly Challenge, theme being 'Add some Sparkle', details can be found 'HERE'.
