Hey, Simon Says Stamps started a second Challenge blog called Simon Says Stamp & Show. It has a more vintage feel which is right up my alley. This week is their first challenge. I used one of my new stamps from Lost Coast Designs for this challenge card. The Simon Says theme is "Winged Things". Perfect theme for my new Flying Ballerina stamp. I used the sketch #26 from the Critter Challenge blog
And I was also inspired by a photo from the Etsy Inspired Challenge. The Etsy shop hosting this week is Lover Dover's. The shop sells all kinds of beautiful handmade aprons and little girl's dresses. Here is the item that inspired my card. It is the Princess Pink tutu. Isn't it sweet!!!Of course my card uses lots of pinks, and rose colored paper and ink. I stamped the image in basic Gray ink (SU) and distressed with Tattered Rose and Fired Brick (Ranger). I stamped a second image and punched a circle and attached it over the original image. Spray with Smooch ink - brown and Shimmer Mist - pink. Layer with black CS (SU). A piece of DP (SU) was dry embossed and distressed with Vintage Photo (Ranger). Just put it all together on the card and add a Tulle bow and some paper roses.
I added a detail shot too. You can see the punched circle and the dry embossing really well in the detail shot.
This card also qualifies for the Wings theme at the Stampotique Desingers Challenge blog.
I think this is such a sweet image. Although the little Ballerina's expression is rather on the grumpy side. What do you think?? LOL. I heading over to the Stamping Vacation challenge blog to see what's cooking. Today is the premier of the New Design Team. Which includes your truly. Have a great day!
