Silhouettes at Fashionable Stamping challenges

Hello there folks, we've got a fab new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping challenges and this time the lovely Ellie has chosen the theme of 'Silhouettes'. As ever we've got a fab prize of a $20 voucher from our generous sponsors Flonzcraft so pop on over to the challenge blog and find out all the details, while you're there have look at all the gorgeous work from my DT sisters, amazing projects as always.

As always i'm starting with an apology as my photos have really darkened the colours but enough excuses lol. I've used dps from LOTV and distress them with Tea Dye distress ink. The roses were made with a Britannia rose dye and the leaves and butterflles were made with punches. 

The focal image is a stamp from Flonzcraft, its one of my favourites from the Vintage Fashion Ladies stamp set, stamped with Potting Soil archival ink. I love this image of the two elegant ladies sipping their tea so decided to carry on with the tea theme and while I was browsing I came across this fabulous tut from Deneen, she has a lovely teapot template too so a big thank you for the inspiration Deneen

I've added little pearls, ribbon, lace pretty button, twine and a gorgeous little teapot charm.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A Creative Romance: seeing double
Cards Galore Encore: stamp or a digi
Crafty Hands: buttons and bows
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Get Inky: circles
LEJ designs: favourite die cuts (roses)

Well thanks for popping by today, have a lovely day
