Fashion at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there folks, my first of three posts today as there are lots of fab new challenges starting. This card is my DT project for Fashionable Stamping Challenges where our theme is 'Fashion'. As always our lucky winner will receive a voucher from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft so you don't want to miss out on your chance to win. We are a stamping challenge though so make sure you make stamping the focus of your project, no digistamps allowed! 

I've used one of my favourite stamps from Flonzcraft for this card, I love these two elegant ladies. I've added colour with Graph'it markers and paper pieced the pink dress. The image has been die cut with spellbinders die and inked with Tattered Rose and Spun sugar distress inks. I've layered it up over a backing paper from Craftwork cards. The large background was made with an old sewing pattern from my stash, over stamped with a damask background stamp from Chocolate Baroque and pink acrylic paint. It doesn't show up very well in the photo but you can see it a bit better here

I've used some button and bobbin die cuts with a bit of thread. The buttons have been embossed with frantage powder in pink. I've added faux stitching, some ribbon, sparkly brads and some paper flowers from my stash to finish off. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: sewing real or faux
Dream Valley: flowers
In the pink: button and bows
Sweet Pea Stampers: lots of layers

If you've got a minute pop over to the challenge blog as my DT sisters have created some gorgeous projects as always. Thanks for popping by, hope to see you again soon
